Reg. no. ROB 299G
Price: £10,995 Ono
Located: Chippenham, Wiltshire
The MGB was a huge seller in period and remains a very popular British classic to this day. A sporty two-seater with elegant looks. The MkII received various upgrades to improve reliability and comfort including synchro mech on all four gears as well as an alternator in place of the older style dynamo. The original 1800cc engine is more than enough to move this lightweight roadster along nicely.
This MGB produced in 1969 looks fantastically period in its Pale Primrose Yellow with chrome bumpers. The V5C document suggests just 5 previous owners and the clocks indicate just under 48,000 miles. The body is in good condition internally and externally having had a previous restoration. Both engine bay and boot area are extremely clean for a British sports car of this age as is the underside. The factory yellow paint is complimented by a black hard top, although a soft top is also included in the sale. The interior is also very tidy in black with red pin striping. There is some minor bubbling on the seems on the wings.
To accompany the sale of this vehicle is a vast folder of history accumulated over its previous owners that includes everything from old MOT’s and parts receipts to tax reminders and service schedules. There are also a number of spare parts many of which look to have been reconditioned, possibly upgraded including front subframe, rear axle, gearbox, springs and stainless exhaust system.
It has only done 6000 miles since 2006 so has seen little to no use in recent years. It is said to run and drive well once warmed up but would benefit from a light recommissioning such as carb tune up and a service. It was last MOT’d in 2020 where it received a clean bill of health.
