Introduced in 1962, the MGB Roadster enjoyed an eighteen-year production run. With nicely balanced handling and a good turn of speed, it merited the old MG marketing slogan 'Safety Fast'. Based around a monocoque chassis featuring independent coil-sprung front suspension and a leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle, its 1798cc 'B' series four-cylinder engine was allied to a four-speed manual transmission. Capable of over 100mph, the provision of front disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering greatly aided control.
This home-market MG B Roadster was first registered in the United Kingdom on the 1st of May 1972. Presented today in the attractive colour scheme of White with Black interior upholstery and hood, the MG is fitted with a 1798cc straight-four engine mated to the four-speed manual gearbox. ‘NTE 188K’ has a recorded mileage of c.7,500 miles following the fitment of a new speedometer unit, with the genuine mileage understood to be c.100,000 miles from new.
Subject to a self-evident restoration, with photographs of the work included in the history file, the MG entered into current ownership in 2018. ‘NTE 188K’ has been the beneficiary of much expenditure since being purchased by the vendor including a new wiring loom, starter motor, alternator, distributor, tyres, and replacement hood frame, as well as being provided with a full service. The aforementioned history file includes said restoration photographs, a collection of invoices and MOT certificates, a current V5C document, and a no advisory MOT certificate until July 2022.
