MGB Roadster 1974 (RUX314N)
MGB Roadster, 1974, chrome bumper model, overdrive, last owner 13 years, older restored vehicle previously sold by a classic car specialist for £8000 in 1999. Blaze Red coachwork still in good condition and testament to the quality of previous restoration, reconditioned original engine modified for use with unleaded fuel. Nice condition original Black vinyl interior trim and recently fitted new hood. History file containing many old mot’s back to 1997 and a plethora of invoices from both the MGOC and independent specialists over the years. The car drives extremely well with a nice tight feel more commonly associated with those of little mileage. It is worth mentioning that following the Chancellor’s 2013 Budget, I can confirm that this vehicle will qualify for tax exemption status from next year. The web enquiry from British Motor Heritage confirms the vehicle was built 16th -17th October 1973. Below is the relevant section from page 84 of the report.
2.148 VED: classic vehicle exemption – The Government will extend the cut off date from which classic vehicles are exempt from VED by one year. From 1 April 2014 a vehicle manufactured before 1 January 1974 will be exempt from paying VED. (Finance Bill 2014)
