MGB Chrome Bumper Roadster Convertible Overdrive 1972 Tax Exempt (Tax & MOT) for sale
Current customer rating: (93 votes) based on
Tax and MOT until October.
Runs and drives fantastically (used every day and had no problems). Has done just over 51k miles.
Overdrive works but is a little slow coming on sometimes.
Selling as I need the money to finish my minis instead.
Previous owner was clearly an MG enthusiast and had been well looked after. It was stored for about 22 years in a very dry garage hence why it is so solid.
It is very original and the car is incredibly solid underneath. sills and on the floors. Doesn't look like it needs any welding work. Has been waxoyl'd underneath to protect it.
Rest of the body is very solid as well. there is a little bit of bubbling on the rear wing but doesn't look bad. will just need rubbing down at some point.
The doors are the only bit that is not as good. look fine on the outer skin but the underneath is rusty.
Body is excellent rust wise but the paintwork looks better in the pictures than it is. Its perfectly usable and it looks good from a distance but up close you can see there is a fair few dents. chips and scratches from age and storage.
The worst of this is the bonnet(see pictures) which has lots and lots of little dents and scratches.
Ideally. it could do with being resprayed to make the car perfect. I planned to enjoy it for the summer then have it resprayed over winter.
Also the rear bumper is pitted and scratched. The front one is very good.
The fuel gauge is a bit temperamental and probably needs a new sending unit and also the temperature gauge doesn't seem to work.
We have spent a lot of time and money on this car since we have had it. It has had (all new):
Silicone hose set
New air filters
Oil filter and oil change (with Slick50 and K&N oil filter)
Spark plugs. points. rotar arm and condenser
Clutch slave and master cylinder
Fuel pipes to the carb and filter
Rocker box gasket
Rear brake slave cylinders
Seat foams and webbing
Complete carpet set and rubber mats
New hood (this cost £400 on its own! Unfortunately there is a small tear that has happened recently in the hood. it doesn't leak but it is unfortunately there)
Black door cappings
Top crash rail
2 new batteries
Ignition coil (made by pertronix)
Wiper arms and wiper blades
Also had the front brake calipers rebuilt and had the valve clearances done.
We have spent a lot of time and money to make the car run smoothly and reliably.
Very original car which makes it ideal for a concourse build or just a beautiful classic to enjoy and hold on to for the future.
With the weather soon turning nice these are going to rocket up in price but just remember it is a 40 year old car that is unrestored!
Viewings are welcome and highly recommended. Please call Andrew on 07941203371 to arrange a viewing or feel free to send us a message.
Car is based in Kingston Upon Thames. Surrey.
Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
