1972 MGB MK II Roadster

 

 

This 1972 MGB Mk II Roadster presents in a clean colour combination and features the desirable electronic overdrive function. It is powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine outputting 71kW/150Nm to the rear wheels. The gearbox in this example is a four-speed manual which has overdrive for third and fourth gear. It currently shows 94,992 miles on its odometer.

 

 

As one of the most famous sports cars of all time, it’s hard to miss an MGB. It sold more than 500,000 units over 18 years, with much of the production run finding homes all over the world. Also available in GT specification with a hard-top roof, the MGB is most commonly found in roadster variant with two seats and an open top. Various improvements were made to the MGB throughout its 18-year run but the desirable Mk II iteration is favoured for its chrome exterior detailing and electrically-engaged overdrive function for the gearbox. People gravitate to the MGB for its affordability, unique driving character, and mechanical simplicity. Owners of MG cars share a common spirit for the brand.

 

 

This car is finished in Damask Red over a black vinyl-upholstered interior. You’ll see chrome detailing on the outside to highlight the bumpers and grille, while the car also features a woodgrain steering wheel and gear shifter inside. A beige-coloured vinyl tonneau cover keeps rain from the interior, in this example. An Alpine head unit is found embedded within the dash console, while Pioneer speakers are found throughout the interior. The car rides on a set of 14-inch chrome wire wheels which are wrapped in Bridgestone tyres.

 

 

Manufactured in 1972, this MGB was delivered new in its factory colour of Damask Red. The owner says maintenance completed since 2009 has been handled by MG workshops and Ray Skewes Automotive.

 

 

The exterior condition of this MGB is good overall, considering the car’s age. The red paintwork appears to be in fine order for the most part, though it has lost some of its shine with time. Marks of fine scratching are seen on the doors, especially around the leading door edge.  The front of the car is marked by stone chip peppering, as are the lower panel portions near the wheels. Under the rear bar is some paint deterioration. Chrome trim appears to be in good order throughout, and the vinyl tonneau cover shows without obvious damage. All four wheels display in polished condition without curb rash and the tyres retain a good level of tread.

 

 

This car’s cabin has fared well over time. The black seats show in good shape without noticeable sagging and contain no obvious tearing or scuffing. Some wear and tear consistent with the car’s mileage is seen around the instrumentation on the dash, though the carpeting appears without major damage. Some surface rust is seen in the driver’s footwell. The woodgrain steering wheel and gear shifter show a nice amount of patina consistent with the car’s use.
