Lot details Registration No: SAN661F Chassis No: 121196 Mot Expiry: June 2008
Some twenty-seven years after it ceased production, the MGB remains as popular as ever. One of Britain's best loved sportscars, the model's handsome styling, spirited performance and balanced handling have won it a veritable army of fans. Based around a two-door monocoque bodyshell equipped with independent coil and wishbone front suspension, a 'live' rear axle, disc / drum brakes and rack and pinion steering, it relied (in both 'Roadster' and 'GT' guises) on a 1798cc four-cylinder engine allied to four-speed manual transmission. Tough, dependable and easy to maintain, the MGB remains in many ways the ideal classic.
Finished in Primrose Yellow with black leather upholstery (piped in yellow), this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its engine, four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, chassis and wheels / tyres (while, he considers the bodywork and paintwork to be "excellent"). Beginning life as a GT, 'SAN 661F' is said to have been refurbished using "a brand new Roadster bodyshell in 1994". Riding on wire wheels, this smart MG B is offered for sale with assorted receipts (including one for the bodyshell) and MOT certificate valid until June 14th 2008.
