THE AUCTION IS UNDER PROXY BIDDING
1969 MGB MKII Roadster
This 1969 MGB MkII Roadster is an Australian-built and delivered, and low mileage, example of an iconic British classic. Under the bonnet is a naturally-aspirated 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine outputting 71kW/150Nm to the rear wheels. This car is fitted with a four-speed manual transmission with the desirable overdrive function. The odometer currently shows 11,487 miles.
The MGB is one of the most recognisable sports cars of all time, having sold more than 500,000 units over the course of 18 years. The MGB Roadster made its debut featuring two seats and a soft-top roof that could be lowered in an instant, though subsequent revisions improved the car with better equipment and styling over time. This car is the desirable MkII version which is favoured for its chrome exterior detailing and electrically-engaged overdrive function for the gearbox. At any given car show, there’s a good chance you’ll find an MGB present. Its affordability, serviceability, and engaging drive experience have ensured its popularity ever since it was new. These cars were sold worldwide and some were even assembled in Australia.
Finished in white exterior paintwork with a black-upholstered interior, this MGB also scores a black roof and red tonneau cover. The interior features a Momo woodgrain sports steering wheel and an Alpine head unit. The car currently rides on a set of 14-inch Superlite wheels fitted with Toyo tyres.
The owner of this MGB describes it as the 36th YGHN6 car to be assembled in Australia – one of only 360. First registered in May 1969, this MGB is well documented with history and invoices dating back to 1987. Its engine and gearbox were replaced in 2003, fitting the overdrive function in the process. A Weber carburettor and mild cam was also installed around this time. More recent works have seen both seats reworked, two new batteries, partial painting where required, and near-new Toyo tyres fitted. Much of its maintenance has been completed through an MG specialist in Mulgrave, Victoria.
The exterior condition of this MGB presents very well for its age. The off-white paintwork shows in very good, glossy condition, while the exterior chrome looks polished and shiny. Some minor points of patina are beginning to show around badges and detailing, adding to the car’s vintage character. Minor bits of surface rust are beginning to show on the underside of the car, however the red tonneau cover and soft-top roof pull taut and show in good order. The four Superlite wheels all display no signs of curb rash and the tyres retain a near-new level of tread.
In terms of the interior, the cabin shows in complete condition with tidy trim and in-tact switchgear and gauges. The vinyl upholstery shows minimal wear and tear and is accented by white piping, while the dash and door cards display no scuffing or cracks. The Momo steering wheel looks to be in fine condition and sets off the space nicely. The carpeting is clean and shows no stains.
This car will be sold with a history file detailing its service records and receipts.
