An excellent rust free 1979 MGB Roadster that has covered a genuine 56,665 miles since new. Finished in Inca Yellow with Black interior, the panel gaps and paint finish really are lovely. It has never been pulled apart and restored...it has just been loved by enthusiast owners. 

Ziebarted from brand new and heavily waxed in all of the important cavities with clear wax oil, this has ensured its remarkable condition some 41 years later. An unleaded cylinder head conversion and electronic ignition make it much more useable and reliable. A lovely paperwork file confirms the cherished and loved upkeep throughout its life.

Completely corrosion free and just wonderfully preserved, this little MGB Roadster looks stunning. The Inca Yellow paintwork is in lovely order and all seams and panel gaps are excellent. The Ziebart rustproof treatment that was applied from brand new really has done its job. This can easily be removed and will reveal a lovely, preserved paint finish underneath it. All bright work and weather strips are excellent. Bumpers both front and rear are undamaged and again in excellent condition. The previous owner has owned MGs for the last 40 years and has been a member of the MG Owners Club for the last 30 years. He searched high and low for an excellent example and looked at many before finding this one. In his ownership, the car has been garaged correctly and only ever used on nice sunny days. He was very good friends with Jeff Allan, the chief engineer at Abingdon and they viewed many of these together before buying this particular example. It has since been his pride and joy and regularly serviced and maintained by Jeff over the years. 

The interior is very good and the seats are perfect. All gauges are fully functional and the oil pressure is excellent. The carbs have recently been serviced and set up to ensure that the car runs and drives just as good as it looks. The original Rostyle wheels are with the car, however they would benefit from a refurbishment. 

The car drives superbly and as good as you would expect from a low mileage, low owner and well maintained example. The paperwork file is just lovely and dates back to when the car was brand new. It has always been loved and well maintained throughout its life.

This really is an excellent car and is need of nothing...
