• Originally 'British Racing Green' over black
• Desirable 1st series 'chrome bumper' model
• Delivered new to France
This MGB Roadster's accompanying BMIHT certificate reveals that it was built as a left-hand drive export model and that it retains matching chassis/engine numbers. Originally finished in British Racing Green with black interior trim and matching hood – the same combination it has today – the car was completed on 13th April 1967 and delivered new to France. It left the factory equipped with wire wheels, heater, foldaway hood, black tonneau cover, Dunlop SP41-tyres, speedometer in kilometres, centigrade thermometer and ashtray. Its first owner kept the MGB Roadster in France until 1976 when it moved to the next long-term French owner up to 2001. The car stayed in Frejus until 2010 when it moved to Belgium for a body-off restoration. The car was purchased by known Belgian car collector, Mr. Armand Blaton, in 2012 from the Belgian dealer/specialist Marreyt Classics. We have been advised that after the restoration only some 2000 kilometres have been driven with the MGB Roadster. Accompanying documentation consists of the aforementioned BMIHT certificate, correspondence with Marreyt, sundry restoration photographs, an original French owner's manual, cancelled French Carte Grise and current Belgian registration papers. The black tonneau cover is included in the sale.
