1970 MG MGB Roadster

The MGB is built to a simple, sensible formula and with simple, sensible technology, even for its time: The two-seater body, designed from the ground up as a no-roof roadster, (not chopped-down from a contemporary sedan, such as the Morris Minor convertible), features quite deep and wide sills for good length-ways and twisting stiffness and during design, there was attention paid to the 1960s' emerging technology of crash safety too, with an energy absorbing crush zones designed into the nose of the car.

Our consignor states this was a Nevada car, fully restored inside and out in 2001, always garage kept, and never in the rain or snow, low original miles, and a shiny black leather interior. This rag topped sports car is appearing as close to the 1970 car that sat in the British Leyland showroom, with careful attention to period correctness.

With gaps well minded and steel straight with no rust we see the exterior bathed in a respray of Dark British Racing Green, the paint is nicely done. However, we do notice a small scratch in front of the driver's door and a scuff on the same side across the British Leyland fender emblem. The chrome is mirror like and shows no pitting, all trimmings are in equally good condition, and the 3 wipered windshield is crystal clear. The convertible top is like new and has a clear back trio of windows. We note that this top had been designed to be removed instead of folded down into the well behind the seats. Like new 185/70R14 blackwall tires with a matching spare wrap 14-inch MG chrome wire wheels. A shout out to the truck, which presents with no rust and contains not only a full-sized spare on a wire wheel but also a tonneau cover and a luggage rack.

A fully restored black leather interior can be seen even better with the top removed. Tuck and roll leather inserts are surrounded by clean mar free smooth black bolsters covering the dual buckets. The hump races through these seats and sports a consolette with black padded arm rest and single cup holder. Within the driver's reach is an aluminum bezel shifter with a chrome shaft and a wooden MG emblazoned shift knob. Black padded vinyl is in excellent condition and forms an elongated oval in front of the steering wheel and houses the gauge cluster right in the driver's sight line. A like new leather wrapped 3 spoke steering wheel fronts the dash. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD player is embedded here also as well as the essential chromed ashtray. Nice black carpet floods the floors and has rubber MG logoed floor mats above.

A pop of the bonnet and you'll be amazed at how great everything is buttoned up and visually appealing. The 1798cc 4 banger has been rebuilt and has a dark red valve cover and engine block. Being fed from the side, the mini mill has dual 1-barrel carbs in the form of SU HS4's and the correct 4-speed manual transmission on back. A 3.90 geared rear axle is way in the back. With supple hoses and clean wiring and just hints of patina under the hood everything is looking just spit spot.

Rust free and showing a few hints of road dirt and surface rust all is structurally sound. Independent coil springs up front and leaf springs are on the rear and provide the handling ride. Disc brakes are on front, and drums on the rear. We note an excess of grease and grime build up on the rear axle, but no puddles formed after an overnight respite.

Climbing into the showroom interior it started right up and idled smoothly. After a brief warm up I left the clutch out and enjoyed my cruise around the Classic Auto Mall Test track, (a well-kept secret as to its actual location). It runs great, handles nicely, and has an upscale feel with the padding, and all being just right.

A fully working example ready to be scooped up and driven immediately, all restored both inside and out and highlighted with a great leather interior and a nice paint job. I say old chap, let's take a tool through the Dandenongs mate!
