We last sold this excellent driving, very well presented MGB Roadster to an East Yorkshire Car Club member back in 2012. We have been dealing with this customer for over 18 years and having enjoyed 12 years of open top motoring, a decision has been made to buy a more comfortable classic saloon. The MGB has been on the show and rally scene across North and East Yorkshire and has covered over 3000 of enjoyable summer motoring over this time period. A huge file of paperwork comes with the car and records over the last twelve years are impressive. The MG has been serviced each year and invoices detail lots of general maintenance, upkeep and detail so ensure the car was presentable for shows and events.
KAL 385K was built on the 28th September 1971 for the RHD Home Market and left the factory in Flame Red. Lucas of Mansfield Limited supplied the MG as a non-overdrive car with Rostyle wheels, heater and seat belts. The MGB was subject of an early 1990's restoration and over 20, 000 miles have been covered over the past 30 years. When it first came to us in 2012 it had been local to us for seven years and enhanced with new seats and paintwork improvements. The car has been taken to a new level in terms of detail, and presents a very sharp, good looking example. The paintwork is of a nice standard, the bodywork solid and brightwork, engine bay detail and interior are all of a very good standard.

On the road KAL 385K is excellent, the engine pulls superbly with impressive performance, correcting cooling and excellent oil pressure. The four speed gearbox is excellent, the car feels tight and precise with excellent road holding and brakes pull up sharp. The MGB was driven to us from the East coast for viewing, and then driven over again to complete the sale. Both times, like every time over the past twelve years the MGB has proven on the button, and been an absolute delight to drive. This very smart, usable MGB is an ideal regular use classic that offers excellent value and requires no major work – its ready to drive away and enjoy.
