1980 MGB GT
An outstanding and unmolested, Abingdon-registered GT with less than 38,000 miles from new. Totally original car, as built at Abingdon, and it even has its original rear tyres still fitted. As they say, “It’s only original once.”
Resplendent in Vermillion with its original grey cloth interior. With its first owner until 2012, some 32 years! Just 37,728 recorded miles from the date of first registration with a Confirmation Statement. Purchased by our vendor, an MG specialist, in 2017 and fully serviced then.
If you’ve long thought about owning one of these iconic British sports cars here is a cracking opportunity to realise that dream.
1980 MG B Roadster
Fully rebuilt ‘B’ Roadster with a new Heritage shell with a genuine and warranted 25,094 recorded miles from new.
Owned by a retired Army Major until purchased by our vendor in 2006. Fully rebuilt into a Heritage Shell and refinished in Snapdragon Yellow.
All mechanical components were rebuilt including the engine, gearbox and overdrive, rear axle and suspension. Even the ancillaries received attention including a new windscreen and frame, new quarterlights, replacement tyres and brakes.
And finally a new/old stock ‘deckchair’ interior was sourced at great expense.
