Description

Complete nut and bolt restoration of a 1968 MGB Roadster.

It has been restored to concours standard and no expense has been spared. I have spent over 40k on this project. I set out to restore the original car, but after partially stripping it down this turned out to be a waste of time for what I wanted to achieve with the car. The decision was made to go the full hog and completely rebuild the car using a Heritage shell.

The engine was upgraded to 2100cc with a full stage II conversion. It now goes like a rocket and drives superbly.
The addition for electric fan and oil controller added to this as well.
The gearbox was also upgraded to a 5 speed Ford box.


Old English white with red hood and interior
