"Some day, you'll settle down with a nice, sensible girl, a nice, sensible house and a nice, sensible family saloon . . . Some day"
So read the MGB advertising of the early to mid 1970s. Thirty years on, the slogan "your mother wouldn't like it" rings slightly less true with the MGB now attracting a bigger following in the UK than any other old car. Due to the presence of an entire cottage industry dedicated to its survival it has ironically become a very sensible ownership proposition. Pleasant to drive with rack and pinion steering, independent coil and wishbone front suspension, disc/drum brakes and 105mph performance MGBs are easily capable of keeping pace with modern traffic. The fitment of overdrive to the four-speed manual gearbox found in most examples also gives surprisingly frugal fuel consumption and comparatively relaxed motorway cruising. Thus, a good MGB is in many ways the ideal classic.
Finished in Pageant Blue with black upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "excellent" condition with regard to its 1798cc engine, four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, chassis, bodywork, paintwork and wheels / tyres. Apparently treated to a recent "full service", 'JOR 30P' is said to drive very well. Believed to have covered some 113,268 miles from new, this attractive MG B Roadster is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until November 2007.
