By 1980, its eighteenth and final year of production, the MG B had become firmly entrenched as Britian's best-loved sportscar. Thus, quite a few examples - including this one - were thoroughly Ziebart rust-proofed before being squirreled away in dry storage. Not road registered until 24th June 1991, the 2+2-seater was acquired by its second private keeper some two years later who treated it to the following sympathetic and period-style upgrades: a beautifully engineered (and possibly unique) rear wash-wipe, wooden Moto-lita steering wheel, stainless steel exhaust, full-length Britax sunroof, tailored / removable load cover, detachable dash-mounted search light, Black leather upholstery (to factory specification), security locks to the doors / bootlid and Minilite-type alloys. Finished in its original shade of Vermillion Red, the GT is warranted to have covered just 13,400 miles from new. Said to 'drive wonderfully in the way that only a very low mileage, unrestored car can', 'MGB 89V' has been freshly serviced and is offered for sale with a 'no advisories' MOT certificate. Ready to show and enjoy, this clearly much-loved GT is described by the seller as being in 'excellent' condition with regard to its 1798cc engine, four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox, electrical equipment, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim. Go find another!
