MGB Roadster MK 1 1964 with 5 SPEED GEARBOX
MGB Roadster Mk 1 Early pull door handle model finished in British racing green with black leather upholstery and siting on painted wire wheels a combination that we think suits this car so well.
Clearly the MG has been well loved over the years and improved by the last two owners both who have owned the car for over 12years apiece and has only become available now due to advancing years and ill health. Supplied new by Hallens of Cambridge a garage well know to me and one we had many dealings with in the 1960s.
Extensive restoration of the bodywork was carried out some years ago to also include a bare metal repaint and cavity wax protection, with invoices and photos on file. This was then followed by a full engine upgrade to enhance the performance, new flat top pistons to raise the compression, big valve cylinder head, larger bore twin su carburettors, new aldon electronic distributor with a nice alloy rocker cover to finish off all done now around 10,000 miles ago
The big turning point was the more recent fitment of the 5speed gearbox conversion ‘expensive yes’ but totally transforms the car and the driving experience. New leather seats, carpets, soft top and frame, dashboard and overhauled instruments, new wiring loom, rear road springs, steering rack, plus a hole host of other items purchased with invoices
There is a large framed photo of the car enjoying the countryside displaying the attractive pre suffix Cambridgeshire three number three letter registration number plate. British Heritage Certificate, related paperwork and owners handbook. Concealed in the fully carpeted boot is the special spanner for removing the wheel spinners and a full length tonneau cover with two new batteries recently fitted.
This would be an ideal car for someone looking for a good solid not necessarily concourse example to enjoy just as the previous owners have.
