RELISTED DUE TO A TIME WASTER OF 5 STAR PROPORTIONS FROM MY OTHER ADVERTISMENT IS MY 1972 MGB ROADSTER.

 FINISHED IN FABULOUS DARK BLUE IT HAS JUST UNDERGONE A COMPLETE RESTORATION TO A VERY HIGH STANDARD.

IT IS FINISHED WITH NEW 15" MINILITE WHEELS - POLISHED RIMS WITH ANTHRACITE CENTRES. THE HOOD IS DARK BLUE MOHAIR AND THE INTERIOR HAS NEW DARK BLUE CARPETS EDGED IN CREAM AND NEW MATCHING DARK BLUE LEATHER SEAT COVERS.

AN OPTION AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICS ARE WIRE WHEELS- YOU CHOSE WHICH YOU PREFER.

FIRST OFF. HE BODYSHELL.

IT WAS COMPLETELY STRIPPED AND ANY CORROSION WAS REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH NEW STEEL. IN SHORT IT HAS BEEN REBUILT WITH COMPLETE NEW SILLS AND FULL FLOORS BOTH SIDES. THAT'S THE WHOLE LOT. EVERYTHING FROM THE TRANSMISSION TUNNEL OUTWARDS HAS BEEN RENEWED AND PROPERLY REPLACED. OTHER LARGE NEW PANELS INCLUDE ONE NEW DOOR AND A NEW BONNET. VARIOUS OTHER SMALL REPAIR PANELS HAVE ALSO BEEN REPLACED AS NECESSARY. AS I SAY THIS HAS BEEN DONE PROPERLY. THE SILL SECTIONS HAVE BEEN FITTED USING WELD THROUGH PRIMER BETWEEN THE SECTIONS WHICH HAVE ALSO BEEN ZINC COATED INSIDE BEFORE CLOSING. ALL BOX SECTIONS HAVE ALSO BEEN WAXOYLED SO THIS WILL LAST FAR LONGER THAN WHEN THESE CAME OUT OF THE FACTORY!

THE WHOLE CAR WAS PROPERLY REPAINTED INSIDE. UTSIDE AND UNDERNEATH IN TOP QUALITY 2PACK FOR DURABILITY. A COAT OF STONECHIP WAS APPLIED TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CAR BEFORE BEING OVERPAINTED AND LOOKS GREAT. NOTHING HAS BEEN HIDDEN WITH SPLODGES OF UNDERSEAL. UNDERNEATH IT ALMOST LOOKS AS GOOD AS THE OUTSIDE!

ON THE MECHANICAL SIDE EVERYTHING HAS BEEN STRIPPED. CLEANED. EXAMINED OR REFURBISHED AND SUBTLY UPGRADED.

THE SUSPENSION AND RUNNING GEAR FOR EXAMPLE. HAS BEEN REBUILT WITH POLYBUSHES. BEARINGS. RACK ROD ENDS ETC.  AND BOTH FRONT AND REAR HAVE BEEN CONVERTED TO ADJUSTABLE GAZ TELESCOPIC SHOCK ABSORBERS.

ALL BRAKE PIPES HAVE BEEN REPLACED AND BRAND NEW FRONT CALIPERS FITTED.

CLUTCH AND CLUTCH HYDRAULICS ARE ALL NEW

A NEW ELECTRONIC IGNITION DISTRIBUTOR HAS BEEN FITTED

CARBURETTORS HAVE BEEN REBUILT AND A KENLOWE FAN HAS BEEN FITTED.

MOTOLITA WOOD RIM STEERING WHEEL

NOW SPORTING A RETRO LOOK DIGITAL RADIO/CD PLAYER THAT ALSO TAKES A USB OR IPOD IMPUT AND A WALNUT DASH ALL DUE TO THE TIMEWAISTER BUT LOOKS REALLY NICE AND SOUNDS GREAT

I HAVE ALSO FITTED A NEW STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM AND STAINLESS TUBULAR SPORTS MANIFOLD

 FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS ARE ORIGINALS THAT I HAVE HAD RECHROMED. EXPENSIVE. BUT FAR BETTER THAN CHEAP NEW REPRODUCTIONS WHICH WILL RUST THROUGH IN A COUPLE OF YEARS.

THERE IS FAR. FAR MORE BUT THAT WILL DO FOR NOW.

I HAVE STACKS OF BILLS AND MOT's GOING BACK MANY YEARS AND A HUGE AMOUNT OF RECEIPTS FOR THIS RESTORATION. I HAVE LOADS OF PICS OF VARIOUS STAGES OF THE RESTORATION AS WELL.

LAST YEAR I TREATED MYSELF TO A 4 POST LIFT SO YOU CAN EXAMINE THE UNDERSIDE IN COMFORT.

IN SHORT THIS IS A PROPERLY RESTORED CAR WITH NO EXPENSE SPARED. YOU COULD EASILY PAY 12-14K FOR ONE LIKE THIS

THE CAR COMES WITH A NEW MOT AND 12 MONTHS ROAD TAX.

I AM ONLY SELLING BECAUSE I HAVE AQUIRED A COUPLE OF OTHER PROJECTS WHILE THIS WAS BEING RESTORED AND I AM A BIT SHORT OF STORAGE SPACE.

THIS IS ALSO BEING ADVERTISED ELSEWHERE SO I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE AUCTION EARLY.

USUAL RULES. I WOULD MUCH PREFER YOU VIEW THE CAR BUT IF YOU BID. OU BID TO BUY NOT HAGGLE AFTERWARDS. I WILL REQUIRE A £300 NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT VIA PAYPAL WITHIN 24 HOURS OF AUCTION END AND BALANCE EITHER BY CASH ON COLLECTION OR BANK TRANSFER.

 

 

I WILL ALSO INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL PARTS SUCH AS STANDARD AIR FILTERS. COOLING FAN. PARE POINTS DISTRIBUTOR AND SHOULD YOU WANT THEM A SET OF ROSTYLE RIMS FOR REFURBISHMENT.

APOLOGIES ALSO TO THOSE WHO CALLED ME AND LEFT CONTACT NUMBERS SHOULD MY SALE FALL THROUGH. I THINK MY DOG ATE THE LIST AS I CANNOT FIND IT!

ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK
