In late 1967, MG introduced the MGB Mark II model. Changes included, synchromesh on all 4 gears, with tunnel and floorpan modifications to accept it, an optional Borg-Warner automatic gearbox, a new rear axle, an alternator, and a change to a negative earth system. Rostyle wheels were introduced in 1969 and reclining seats were standardized in 1970. 1971 also saw a new front grille, recessed, in black aluminium. The more traditional-looking polished grille returned in 1972 with a black "honeycomb" insert. 

This Mk2 MGB Roadster has been garaged and rarely used since 2006, when the vendor, the 2nd owner since it was restored, purchased it. It has had 10 MoTs during this time, all passed without advisories. The body work is generally very good but it needs attention on the passenger side paintwork. All paperwork is available, servicing, repairs etc, including invoices for a new roof (C E Moore Coachtrimmers) in 2012 and extensive bodywork (Grimshaw & Wake) on the driver's side. It is an imported car that has been converted to RHD. The car is MoT'd until October 2020 and comes with British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, (Certified copy of a factory record), an extensive collection of manuals, old tax discs and MoTs.

The vendor says the car has been very reliable, and now really needs a good home. It stiil catches the eye, and sailed through its recent MoT.
