1974 MGB GT with Overdrive

Just out of short-term storage, this very attractive MGB has been in the same family ownership since 1979, and has been very much enjoyed over the years.  First registered in August 1974, the V5C shows a total of only 5 keepers and the very comprehensive paperwork file includes an invoice from The Regent Autocar Company Limited of Market Harborough, for the sale of the car in July 1979 ‘for £2,300, as seen, tried and approved’.  The car is finished in striking Citron Yellow, with black vinyl roof incorporating a very good condition Webasto fabric sunroof.  The interior which is original, is black, and in fairly good condition.  The headlining is good.  The car starts easily and runs and drives very well, with smooth overdrive, good oil pressure and no untoward noises.  The under-bonnet area is original, so could be improved, the underside appears sound and indeed, the MOT history is very good.   The Minilite wheels are in very good condition, good battery and exhaust.  However, the car is priced as it is, because it is in need of a little care and attention to the bottom of the front wings and the nearside windscreen pillar.  At some stage, the sills appear to have been replaced and Waxoyled.  The castle sections have been repaired.

All in all, this is an excellent starter classic or first MGB, at a very good price – a car that is ideal for using and improving. 

Other paperwork includes V5C, old V5s, old MOT certificates, handbook, workshop manual and spare parts book.  This is an historic vehicle, so no tax to pay.
