Lot details

Registration No: XCA 995K
Chassis No: GHN52748279

  • Subject to an extensive bodywork restoration and paint in the early 2000's
  • Offered with a collection of invoices from marque specialists

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.

First registered on 4th April 1972, 'XCA 995K' displays 84,900 recorded and credible miles and has just 5 former keepers since 1972. It has been the subject of extensive bodywork restoration and paint in the early 2000's with extensive receipts from The Welsh MG Centre and Moss Europe, that include the purchase of new front wings, new fuel tank, bumper parts and grille pieces (to name just a few items) since 2001. The car also benefits from a Kenlowe fan, electronic ignition and is fitted with overdrive. Inside, the cockpit has been freshened with an aftermarket burr walnut - effect dashboard trim, and complementing it all is a set of Cream leather MGF seats with Cream door cards and carpet set. There is an extensive collection of old MOT certificates and related MOT garage test invoices. 'XCA 995K' is accompanied by a large collection of the aforementioned invoices.
