MGB Roadster - Chelsea Grey
The seventh release on this very pretty little 2-door sports car from the early 1960s is decorated in a subtle silver grey with red interior and matching tonneau cover. It is registered 207 RAR and with a 1798 cc engine, it was obviously raring to go in its time! Note the chrome bumpers which in real life were sadly replaced by rubber bumpers on models produced from 1974 onwards. The distinctive MG badge sits in the middle of the boot lid and also in the centre of the radiator surround at the edge of the bonnet.
The MG Roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced as the successor to the MGA. It was a pure two-seater and improvements over the MGA included more passenger and luggage accommodation, softer suspension ensuring a more comfortable ride and a larger engine giving a higher top speed. The Roadster had a four-speed gearbox with an optional overdrive transmission. One of the best loved British sports cars, it is still a firm favourite for proud owners of classic motors.
