MGB Roadster for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California.
Solid 1968 MGB Roadster for sale, just one owner until a year ago. Owned
from new by a couple in the Bay area until purchased by my client earlier
this year. The original owner worked at an MG dealership. It was his
wife's car and only used for local drives in their home town. The car
starts; runs and drives beautifully with smooth shifting, tight suspension,
excellent brakes and clean running quiet motor with plenty of oil pressure.
Truly amazing to find such an original gem.
Incredibly original and unaltered, right down to the emissions equipment on
the engine. Lovingly cared for. The only modifications are period speakers
installed in the rear bulkhead and an electric cooling fan added to the
radiator. Drives with a tightness and originality that you don't find on
restored cars. Has had one repaint of it's original primrose on a razor
straight, absolute rust-free body. The wheels still bear the factory paint
and car has a vintage Amco convertible top. Frame bag is included. Nice
chrome, trim, glass and even the original leather in beautiful condition.
Also includes both original issue black license plates.
Take a look at all the details as well as full photo gallery at the link
above and then give me a call with your best offer.
Thanks for watching this 1968 MGA test drive video - please leave a nice
big thumbs up and a Like!
Work on my MGB by Classic Car Services, MGOC recommended
If you view this video on fullscreen you might appreciate the workmanship
I purchased my MGB in 1999. Late 2007 I decided to give it a facelift so
chose Classic Car Services, Ledian Farm Industrial Estate, Leeds, Maidstone
from my MG Owners Club recommended directory. There were several times I
had to return to the garage because of things I was unhappy with. The
bonnet did not fit as good as the old one. The overdrive did not work after
a new wiring loom was fitted, it was suggested that I had been driving
around since 1999 with overdrive on, it transpired that they had not
connected it correctly. I later found the windscreen heating ducting was
I thought the general finish on the car was very poor and was better before
I took the car to Classic Car Services. I had the opportunity to let MG
Owners Club know of my feelings on an online questionnaire they ask members
to complete annually.
In January 2010 the car, which is garaged had a flurry of snow on the boot
lid for 2 days, when this melted it left the surface pock marked. I
contacted MGOC to ask for advice, they suggested I contact the garage. When
I contacted Classic Car Services in January they remembered me and asked me
to take the car to them for inspection which I did. I was told it was a
paint defect and they would respray the boot after sanding back in February
or March (Free of charge). By 22nd of March I had not heard from them so
gave them a call, they couldn't remember telling me they could repair the
paint in February / March but are in the middle of a job right now and
would repair the paint in April. By this time the paint had flattened but
still left imperfections on the boot lid which I told them about. It is now
June 2010 and I have heard nothing from Classic Car Services so decided to
replace parts on my car which were given to me as Christmas presents. I am
still finding things wrong with my MGB which were not there before using
this MG Owners Club recommended dealer.
