1964 MGB Coune Berlinette race car
MGB Berlinette by Jacques Coune - The ultimate MGB? Handcrafted by Belgian coachbuilder Jacques Coune in the early 1960's shortly after the manufacturing of the MGB Roadster began but before the prototype and launch of the factory MGB GT. Less than 56 examples are known to have been built During manufacturing there was a meeting with both Jacques Coune and Sir Alex Issisgonis to discuss the potential of the Berlinette being manufactured by BMC. This however this never materialised due to opinions of many being that the Berlinette design "looked too italian"! Even though they were very well manufactured using Jacques Coune's methods they were not commercially viable costing almost doubt to build compared to the standard MGB. This particular example is 1 of just 12 remaining and is the only car to have been converted into a race car. In most recent years it has competed at Goodwood in 2002 and 2010 by the late owner Mr Bob Ridgard. Since the car was last completed it has been subjected to a full strip down and rebuild including a full driveline (details can be specified upon enquiry). A chance to acquire one of the rarest cars MGB's ever produced. £89995
1970/J MGC GT Manual
Original Snowberry white with black trim
A Genuine UK Market RHD MGC GT! supplied new by the dealer Lex Tillotson of Kidderminstyer, Worcestershire in september 1970. Supplied new in Snowberry white with a black trim, wire wheels and a heater ! This car was subsiquently used sparingly until the mid 1970's before it was parked up into storage which is where it stayed for 15 years before it was sold to a gentleman for "restoration" on a genuine recorded mileage of just 16572 miles from new in January 1990. From this point until 1998 the car was in receipt of an extensive restoration recorded in a timeline of stages in its history file in both images and written description. Today the car still presents very will with a very credible and believed to be original mileage of just 22,000 covered from new supported by its extensive history file of MOT's, Heritage certificate, rerstoration documents and invoices too! Most recently this car has had a hydraulic power steering conversion which is a great improvement on the overall driveability of the car. This is not to be missed with good quality MGC GT's now becoming rare and difficult to get hold of ! 12 months MOT and service completed subject to purchase
1963 MG B ROADSTER
An older restoration built to a relatively standard spec but for an Unleaded head conversion
Just 5 former keepers from new with a wonderful history file and with a credible mileage of just 54,000 miles from new. This vehicle is still supplied today with its two 6 volt batteries as per factory spec. There is a full detailed breakdown of a full engine rebuild undertaken within the last 1500 miles of use (in 2010) where no stone was left un-turned along with a gearbox rebuild around the same time. The colour combination is as per its factory spec (tartan red coachwork and black trim) all of which is wonderfully presentable. All in all this is a wonderful example of an honest, usable and desirable early MG B with is begging to be used.
