First registered in Wolverhampton on February 2nd 1971 (or so its ‘EUK 2J’ number plate would imply), this very smartly presented MG B Roadster shows just two former keepers on the accompanying V5C Registration Document. Entering the current ownership in 2006, the two-seater was painstakingly restored over the next fifteen years utilising a brand-new Heritage bodyshell. The engine was re-bored and fitted with a new timing chain, pistons, bearings and seals etc plus an unleaded cylinder head. The fuel, brake, steering and suspension systems were all overhauled with new or refurbished parts as necessary. The wiring was renewed and the interior re-trimmed. Subtly enhanced with a stainless steel exhaust, hi-torque starter motor, Lumenition electronic ignition, Evans waterless coolant and K&N air filters, ‘EUK 2J’ rides on Minilite-style alloy wheels. The work is understood to have cost nearly £33,000 and as a result the MG B Roadster is described by the vendor as being in ‘excellent overall’ condition with regards to its 1.8 litre engine, four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork. Worthy of close inspection and offered for sale with handbook and history file (the latter containing numerous invoices from MGB Hive and MechSpec MG Centre etc).
