Description:

Description from The Vendor:

As well as being a desirable chromed bumper model, this MGB roadster also boasts the optional chrome wire wheels and overdrive transmission, and thus is to what many would consider the ultimate specification. A copy of the original logbook obtained from the DVLA shows that OLE 152E was delivered and registered in March 1967 to University Motors, London. The logbook records changes of keeper over the next few years before the car was acquired in October 1981 by Mr Steve Edwards who owned it until November 1981 when it was acquired by Mr G. A. Weller. The current vendor purchased the MGB in November 1981 and has owned it for 37 years.

Kept garaged and used only in fair weather, the MG was treated to a full restoration by A & C Motors of Welling, Kent in January 1990. Work carried out at this time included a repaint, replacing worn panels, new seat covers and a new white hood purchased from Car Hood (1983) Ltd of London W10. The clutch has been replaced and a new stainless steel exhaust has been fitted. There is also an accompanying insurance valuation.

A mere 12,000 miles have been covered since the rebuilds completion and OLE 152E remains in what the vendor describes as generally excellent condition, having been maintained by MG specialists LMG of Bexleyheath. Finished in Tartan Red with black leather interior the car is offered with the aforementioned copy logbook, current MoT/tax, Swansea V5 document and a substantial history file containing restoration and service invoices, photographs taken during restoration, and assorted tax discs and MoTs dating back to 1981.
