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'. Capable of over 100mph, the provision of front disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering greatly aided control. The biggest visual change in the car's history occurred in 1974 when steel reinforced rubber bumpers replaced the chrome ones, and the ride height was raised by one inch. By the time Roadster production ceased in October 1980, a total of 399,070 are said to have been produced.

Displaying just 12,020 miles (at time of consignment) on the odometer, this surprisingly low-mileage MGB Roadster is presented in Vermillion Red. First registered in 1981, it is offered having been in the long-term ownership of a family. A 4-speed manual with overdrive is fitted along with classic wire wheels. The interior consists of grey cloth seats with head restraints and black vinyl trim elsewhere. No radio has been fitted but the original MG blanking plate is still in position. This Roadster presents as an honest example of one of the very last of the MGB production and is offered with owners wallet, handbook and passport to service plus a collection of old MOT’s and invoices.
