A delightful unmolested example of an early 'pull handle' MGB Roadster, the car comes with extensive history including a Heritage certificate showing it to have been supplied new to University Motors as an original home market right hand drive vehicle supplied with wire wheels, anti roll bar, heater and a pack away hood.

Included in the history is the green log book substantiating that the car appears to have had only two previous owners, one of whom was ourselves. 


The paintwork is bright and clean showing no signs of corrosion or damage, the panel fit is good and the structure solid.


The car is 'on the button' and performs well on the road with a crisp exhaust note and easy gearchanges, there are no untowards knock, rattles or bumps.


The overall appearance is of a well cared for car, the wire wheels are in great shape and shod with recent tyres, the brightwork is all present and correct including the lovely original grille.


The car benefits from having had replacement seat covers in black with white piping together with new carpets and the overall impression is of a cleans and tidy cared for car.


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.

  • 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?
