Probably the most sought after specification, this lovely Tartan Red MGB Roadster was previously sold by us having come from a long term local owner. Only for sale due to a change in circumstances, this lovely example drives extremely well with a willing and responsive engine  and was a delight on test, the overdrive proving smooth and the roadholding good.

Despite being an older restoration, the car remains in super condition with a really bright appearance, sitting on chrome wire wheels and lovely bright paintwork emphasised by the excellent chrome.

There's a thick history file to accompany the car as well as a charger and cover plus supporting documentation.

For sale on behalf of the owner.

Available for viewing in our dry, well lit, sales barn by appointment please.


In great shape that belies its age, the car is super straight and with no evidence of issues or attention needed.


It's strange to think that all these MGBs came from the same source yet no two cars drive alike. This one is a real honey with a really excellent engine that suggests that it has probably been balanced and maybe had other work done. In all respects it drives 'spot on' and would make a great back road steed.


In fine condition, the paintwork is in excellent condition with a deep gloss and only minor blemishes, the chrome is great including that on the wire wheels. The hood is good.


In excellent condition, importantly, it has modified seats with headrests for your peace of mind and inertia reel seatbelts for safety and comfort. Everything is in good condition, the seats are comfortable and supportive, overall a well cared for motorcar.


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.
