This is a rare MGB V8 Roadster built using a new Heritage shell using new or reconditioned parts. With a displacement of 4.6 litres, the performance is blistering whilst being accompanied by an amazing soundtrack. There is extensive build data with the car and receipts going back decades from which we've deduced that it must have been completed in the mid nineties.

Despite having been completed some time ago, the body and paintwork, including underneath, remain in excellent condition. We have inspected the car on our ramp and can confirm that it has been built to a very high standard and is to a very high specification.

A lovely desirable car that would cost much more to buld than the asking price.

For sale on behalf of the owner, it is available for viewing, by appointment please, in our dry, secure and well lit offsite showroom.

Bodywork

In excellent condition throughout, no evidence of corrosion or repairs, factory panel gaps, MGC aluminium bonnet with additional louvres for cooling.

Mechanical

Fantastic specification including the engine built around a new 4.6 litre short motor, reconditioned heads, LT75 gearbox, V8 propshaft, V8 rear axle, stainless exhaust, Spax shock absorbers - drives extremely well and very, very quick.

Exterior

The striking Diamond White paintwork is set off beautifully by the navy mohair hood, the alloy wheels were refurbished a little while ago and still look great, all of the trim, chrome and lighting equipment is all in very good order.

Interior

Clearly, a lot of time was spent bringing the interior specification up to a level to compliment the body and mechanicals. The walnut trim dash, centre console and door cappings are of a good quality and the instruments have been modernised with cream faces. The seats will be refurbished.

 

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.
