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.

Manufactured in 1971 and first registered in the UK in August that year, the MGB is fitted with the aforementioned 1798cc straight-four B-Series engine mated to the four-speed manual transmission. Finished in Maroon with Black interior upholstery and hood, the MG is accompanied by a scarce hard-top finished in Black and is showing c.82,500 recorded miles. Last on the road in approximately 2008, ‘HLR 43K’ has been in dry storage since then and while the MGB is running, it will require restoration/recommissioning before road use. Offered with a current V5C document.
