4. 1969 MGB Roadster

I built this car in 1993/94, using a doner car and a heritage bodyshell. Oh, and a Haynes manual and my mate Steve.


1993 was all about stripping bits off the car, refurbishing and buying new what couldn't or shouldn't be retained.

Assembly of the new car began in November 93 and was complete by April 1994.

I'll add images of the restoration soon. In the meantime below are a few more recent shots of the car.

Parked next to the Seafish bus at our Hull office.
My new boat (built 2011) before it was painted.
With a load of plywood - for boat building. Note that the trailer only has a single wheel.
