1972 MGB Roadster


Lot 155 Registration Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: GHN 52803316G Designed in-house at MG, with final styling by Farina, the new MG B was launched at the 1962 Earls Court Motor Show. Its appeal was instant, offering a huge increase in interior space while having overall dimensions less than those of the MGA. Capacity was enlarged from 1,622cc to 1,798cc. Via twin SU carburettors it developed a respectable 94bhp at 5,400rpm and 1071b ft at 3,500rpm which, allied to a four speed gearbox, allowed the handsome new MG to achieve 0-60mph in 11.4 seconds and a top speed of 105mph. The rest is, as they say, history, as the MG B went on to become the most popular English sports car. XUN 460K was first registered new on the 15th of May 1972. It remained with the same careful enthusiast owner for more than 30 years, during which time it has been subject of a comprehensive restoration, including the fitting of a new MGB engine approximately 9,000 miles ago. Finished in Tartan red and fitted with chrome wire wheels and overdrive on third and fourth gears, it has full and half tonneau cover, black leather seats piped red with matching carpets and a wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel. As a result, the car is being described by the vendor, a long-time MG enthusiast and collector, as in excellent condition throughout. The car has taken part in many MG Car Club and MG Owners Club events over the years and the plaques of these events are included with the vehicles details. The car has a current MoT certificate valid until the 10th of February 2011 and is classified as a Historic Vehicle which means that it is not subject to Road Tax in the United Kingdom. A large folder containing the car’s history, including MGB manuals, old tax discs, MoT certificates and invoices come with the car. For additional peace of mind for the buyer the car has just had a fresh service and a new battery has been fitted. Try to find a better one!
