This 1971 MGB Roadster is a sold project that had a full nut and bolt restoration carried out to a customers specification.
The bodyshell was stripped back to bare metal, coated in Jenolite (rust eater), etch primed, primed and painted in Tartan Red (including underneath). From there, all new brightwork has been fitted to the body, including all lights, bumpers etc.
The front and rear axles were stripped, taken back to bare metal, primed and painted in gloss black. All new suspension, braking and steering components were fitted, including upgraded Spax shock absorbers, polybushed suspension and EBC brake discs/pads.
The 1800cc engine was stripped down and rebuilt, including an upgraded ‘gas flowed’ cylinder head, hi-torque camshaft and Vernier timing gear. Once fitted, the rest of the engine bay was detailed with all new parts, including brake servo, master cylinders, overhauled original heater box, upgraded aluminium radiator and electric cooling fan.
Tan leather seats and trim kit were fitted with a deluxe red wool carpet set. The dashboard was fully overhauled and a new Mota Lita steering wheel fitted. Other upgrades fitted during the restoration included a mohair hood and tonneau cover and a hidden Bluetooth stereo system.
We underwent over 100 miles in test driving, before delivery to the customer in Blackpool.
