1978 MGB Roadster

A 2 owner MGB in remarkable, original condition with just 15,100 miles.

The first owner acquired the car on 18 August 1978 and sold the car to its second owner on 12 March 1982. The Leyland Passport to Service shows six stamps up to 1981 and 11,600 miles. The second owner used the car very sparingly and was MOTed up to 2001 then again in 2007 and 2014 – we have SORN declarations for most of the other years. Since coming into our possession we have completely recommissioned the car including oil and filter change, all rubber fuel lines, new fuel pump, new front discs and pads at the front, rear drums cleaned, changed the brake fluid, clutch fluid, drained coolant and flushed, added anti-freeze, fitted a new battery clamp, new washer pump, new rotor arm, new air filter, new spark plugs, new HT leads, new fuel filter and screen wash. The car was then MOTed and passed with no advisories and is valid until 26 July 2022. The car runs and drives like a dream with no knocks or rattles and feels exactly like a 15,000 mile car should. This car has never been restored and is just like it left the factory.

Rostyle wheels, small roof tonneau and full size tonneau in as-new condition, original Radiomobile radio, working interior light, leather seats, original number plates, lined boot area, updated electronic fuel pump, one wing mirror (blanking plate for the passenger side, as when the car was new).

Lovely original paint with just a few tiny blemishes here and there, fully waxoiled from new so in remarkable rust free condition throughout. The roof is like new bar a few marks on the rear window, wonderful chrome with no blemishes, fantastic untouched interior with leather seats added in period by the second owner. Carpets, dashboard, centre console and windows are all unmarked. Wheels are perfect and the tyres are brand new Toyos. Underneath the car has been protected from new and is completely rust-free with a stainless steel exhaust fitted in 1996 that makes a fabulous raspy noise. All rubbers like new and the doors shut with a satisfying clunk and all line up with the bodywork perfectly as this car has never been apart or restored.
