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.
Presented in Tartan Red with contrasting black leather interior, KBV 722F was manufactured in 1967 and has been in current ownership for a staggering 29 years. In February 1992 when it was acquired by its current custodian, KBV 722F was subject to a comprehensive restoration with a heritage shell and has since been used enthusiastically throughout Europe in rallies and shows, picking up 1st in class awards at the Cumbria Classic Car Show in ‘06, ‘09 and ‘12.
KBV 722F has always been stored in a carcoon, and features Overdrive on 3rd and 4th, Ditto chrome wire wheels, parabolic springs, an uprated camshaft, twin 2.5’ SU Carbs, stainless steel exhaust, chrome boot rack, Moto-lita steering wheel, wind deflector and Mohair hood with tonneau cover.
Currently displaying a warranted 41,000 miles since its restoration, the vendor rates the interior trim as ‘’good’, the condition of the bodywork and paintwork as ‘’very good’’ and the engine, electrical equipment and transmission and gearbox as ‘’excellent’’. Included with the vehicle is a comprehensive folder including MOT certificates every year from 2021 to 1992, then from 1979 down to 1974, a photographic history of the restoration and receipts totaling over £30,000.
