1971 Black MG MGB

Hampshire, United Kingdom


1971 MGB V8 Roadster

This has to be the ultimate MGB and certainly the car that MG should have built in period. This car is based on a RHD 1971 MGB professionally re-built and upgraded in England in 2001 using a new heritage body to its current V8 specification. Since the full re-build the car has had one owner in England and its current danish owner who bought the car in England in 2009. The car is registered as a historic vehicle and has only ever been used in the dry as the condition attests. The mileage since the re-build is only 17000 miles.
