We are very happy to display this great MGB roadster in our showroom. Restored from 1998 to 2000, it is still in excellent condition and we would be proud to take it to any local car show. It was displayed at the 2001 Autorama in Dallas and won in it's class there. The seats, done during the restoration, are by Robert Hermans Upholstery. They look as good as the day they were done.
The dash is excellent. All gauges look great as well as the original British Motor Corporation Radio, which does work. There is a Panasonic CD player that was added. The trunk is clean and detailed. There is a spare and the rubber mallet to remove the wheels. There are spare parts that go with the car as well. The 1798cc engine runs great. The owner did change the original Stromberg carburetor to a Weber downdraft for better performance but does have the original which will go with the car. The engine work was done by John Sprouse Automotive. The undercarriage is also in very good condition. This car has very few miles on it since the restoration.
These are a few of the photos of the restoration. There is a complete notebook with the car containing many more photos and receipts from the build. The restoration was done by the owners who happen to own a body shop. This was a labor of love for the wife. She showed the car when it was complete and some unforeseen health issues caused them not to use the car much in the past couple of years. The car was checked out carefully before coming to us.
The MBGs came from the factory with front disc brakes with calipers manufactured by Girling. The rear brakes were drums. The soft top is new and the frame was restored and is also like new. The hard top was actually not restored. It is in need or restoration.
