A truly stunning MGB Roadster re built using a new Heritage shell. In superb condition with stunning metallic purple paintwork complimented by chrome wire wheels and a fantastic red leather interior. It is also equipped with many modern enhancements including power steering, gas struts to the boot and bonnet, servo assisted brakes, quality CD/ Radio player, stainless steel sports exhaust and several other features.  Every mechanical component has been rebuilt, replaced or reconditioned and the car is equipped with an overdrive gearbox for relaxed, long distance cruising.

This is a totally 'one off' vehicle which would cost much more than the asking price to recreate, agreed valuation of £25,000 from MGOC.

Receipts and photos to hand of the restoration which was carried out professionally.

The car started life as a GT and has been converted to a Roadster as part of the restoration process.

The ideal gift for someone special?

Registration number available by separate negotiation.

For sale on behalf of owner. Viewing / test drive by arrangement on Wednesdays, Fridays or Saturdays* (* Sat. am only)



Although built a little while ago, the paintwork remains in unmarked condition with a deep lustrous shine and in an amazing colour which really suits the car.


Having been completely rebuilt, as you can imagine, the car drives like new. Typically torquey and flexible for a well sorted MGB, the car is a delight to drive, free from rattles or knocks.


Having been fully restored, all of the trim, brightwork, wheels and hood are all free from defects and in excellent condition - the pictures really do speak for themselves.


The complete interior has been re-trimmed to a very high standard in high quality red leather and looks absolutely stunning. The carpets are new, all of the switch gear works perfectly, all in all, a delightful place to be.


Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.

  • If you are going to use your MGB for everyday use, for competition, or your current gearbox is giving you trouble then our Mazda gearbox conversion might be an ideal solution for you.

  • When you own a classic car knowing where to get the best spare parts is crucial. We have a dedicated Parts Manager who will track down the best quality and hardest to find part for your car, we like to call this Automotive Archaeology, if it’s available ... we will find it.

  • Classic cars are special, and we can provide MOT testing for yours.

  • We clean and air dry the underside of your cherished classic and treat with a choice of clear or black waxoyl.

  • If you need to store your classic car for a short period or more long term, wouldn't it be reassuring to know that it was being stored by a highly skilled professional team who love their work?

  • When your car is with us we have a wide selection of courtesy cars for you to use.
