1981 MG B Roadster



1981 MG B Roadster

The vendor has kindly supplied the following information. 

MGB Roadster 1981 in Snapdragon Yellow, Black interior with contrasting Red piping. The car is in a superb solid condition both inside and out, benefiting from being rustproofed possibly from new. The hood appears to be a recent fitment and in very good condition.

These late MGB's were produced with factory standard unleaded engines from new so not requiring an unleaded cylinder head conversion to run on unleaded fuel.

The car has a fully functioning Overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears

The current mileage is 75987, whilst not being warranted, is possibly correct with old MOT Certificates going back to May 2004.

A full service was carried out at 75609 miles.

New items fitted and work carried out over the last 2 to 3 years are as follows:

  • Clutch Master Cylinder & Slave Cylinder
  • Cylinder Head overhaul with new Valves & Guides
  • Radiator & Hoses
  • Thermostat
  • Fuel Pump

There is a Hagerty Insurance Agreed Value Certificate dated 25/4/2017 for £7500

We are proud to have sold this exceptional Roadster at least 5 times over the last 10 years or so. The overall appearance has remained in the superb condition you see it now due to the care afforded by its owners and its anti-corrosion treatment. One to keep!
