- Treated to a new fuel pump, stainless steel exhaust and chrome wire wheels shod with Michelin tyres over the last four years plus numerous cosmetic enhancements

Introduced in 1962, the MGB Roadster enjoyed an eighteen-year production run thanks to its handsome styling, balanced handling, sprightly performance and rasping exhaust note!

Finished in desirable Primrose Yellow with Black upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in `very good overall' condition with regard to its engine, gearbox, bodywork, paintwork, electrical equipment and interior trim. Understood to have had just six former keepers, `UKR 200H' was treated to an extensive `nut and bolt' restoration between 2013 and 2015. Purchased by the seller from marque specialist Lower Barn Classics of Ipswich in July that year, the Roadster's history file includes a full list of the refurbishment work undertaken (with various supporting photos) and a favourable MG Owners' Club inspection report. Improved still further over the past four years, the B has benefited from the installation of a new fuel pump, stainless steel exhaust and chrome wire wheels shod with Michelin tyres plus numerous cosmetic enhancements (all documented). Submitted for voluntary MOT testing to preserve the vendor's peace of mind, the MG's current certificate runs until July 2019 and only noted a windscreen chip (not in the driver's view) and a steering column top bearing requiring adjustment.
