Here is my 1980 MGB roadster in factory Carmine red it has been dry stored most of its life and has only completed 19,000 miles from new, I have all the previous MOTs with the car to confirm this and it has a current MOT. It has a very interesting history: In August 1980 Mr and Mrs R Williams bought the last two MGB Roadsters supplied to Caffyns Ltd Kent, before the Abingdon factory closed in October 1980. The “His and Hers” Registration numbers of the MGB Roadsters were - CFN 749W and CFN 750W. CFN 750W Was bought for Mrs Williams who enjoyed using the MG for 5 Years, it was then purchased by “Classic Cars ltd” who used the car in their magazine and in various shows including the Manchester car show 1988. CFN 749W Was not used on the road for its first 10 years, the battery was disconnected on the day of purchase, it was wrapped up in sheets and blankets and stored with 2 other cars. It had its first MOT in August 1989 when it was sold having completed only 25 delivery miles. I have a box of paperwork including the original BL owner’s information pack with “Passport to service” It is all still original and in amazing condition considering it is 37 years old and has not been restored, therefore it is not concourse and has a few paint imperfections. However this is a fine example of the MGB and very hard to find with this low mileage and original condition.
