In the current family ownership since 1972; in regular use;
bodywork needs attention
First registered in September 1970, this MGB Roadster was acquired by our vendor’s father when it was less than two years old and it has remained in the family ever since. The purchase invoice shows that he bought it from Wadham Stringer of Petersfield in July 1972 for £1,175, at which point it was finished in Bronze Yellow. It was later repainted red in 1980.
Used regularly over the last 40 years, it has now covered 94,800 miles and although there is no real service history with the car, we are told that it has always been well looked after and has proved very reliable. Although it is now MOT-exempt, it has always been tested every year, the current MOT being valid until August 2023 with no advisories recorded.
As you can see in the photos, it could now do with some localised repairs to the bodywork. The eagle-eyed will have noted the Sprinzel badge at the rear of the car, John Sprinzel being a well-known racing driver of the 1950s/60s who founded the Speedwell tuning company and later ran his own sports car dealership. Whether this car has any Sprinzel upgrades or was originally supplied by his dealership has been lost in the mists of time.
Starting promptly and running well as we have moved it around on site, with good 55psi oil pressure, it is only reluctantly for sale due to the advancing years of the vendor who can no longer hop in and out of the car as she once did. Perfectly usable as it is, it could be smartened up over time as desired.
