1966 MGB Roadster Manual Overdrive. Red with black leather upholstery and black hood. This stunning MGB has been loving restored by the previous owner. Door cards and carpets and a brand new foldaway hood are in excellent condition. This was my fathers pride and joy but sadly after he passed away last year we can no longer keep it and would like it to find a loving home. Since owning the MG we have never put the soft top on as the vehicle has never been taken out in the rain since ownership. The paintwork is in good condition with minor surface rust showing as per the images. There is also a couple of dings on the body work which can easily be amended. Chrome wires are in excellent condition. Small hole on the inner sill, please see the image. Minor rattle which has been located to the dynamo, suspected to be the dynamo bearings. Included with the sale, will be a brand new dynamo, which was purchased 2 years ago from “David Manners”. Also included is a hard top (which will require a part resto), two leaf springs, spare wire wheel, refurbed 25D distributor and a box of spare bits. The vehicle has had an electronic ignition fitted, which is a huge plus. HT leads, fuel pump and coil have been replaced. Also included will be a spare ignition kit (positive earth). Another lovely feature is that the roadster still retains its original aluminium bonnet, most have been replaced with steel now. Starting on the button and displaying excellent oil pressure the car is equally as good to drive, with working overdrive and a lovely exhaust note the car turns heads and provides plenty of smiles.


Good to look at, fun to drive, amazing parts availability, the archetypal classic roadster and coupe
