Footnotes

  • This MGB Roadster was constructed for the previous owner in 2009/2010 utilising a new Heritage body shell and a new Coscast 4.6-litre V8 engine. The latter was prepared and supplied by RPI Engineering of Norwich complete with Hotwire fuel injection; new enhanced ignition system and Borg Warner T5 transmission with up-rated clutch and Centronic clutch release (details on file). CCHL of Hull then installed this engine in the body shell, which had been adapted for the V8 conversion incorporating many improvements over standard MGB specification. A number of MGB RV8 parts were used, such as the full front cross-member, up-rated brake discs, callipers, pads, front springs and telescopic shock absorbers, while the rear axle was fitted with Spax adjustable suspension. The steel bonnet too is an RV8 item with a bulge to accommodate the 4.6-litre engine. Other noteworthy features include an up-rated RV8 starter motor; RV8 exhaust manifold and stainless steel system; 72-spoke chromed wire wheels; and a fully re-trimmed blue leather interior with reclining front sports seats. The rebuild and conversion cost over £43,000 (see invoices and correspondence on file). Purchased by the vendor's late husband in 2012, 'UUX 980J' has covered fewer than 600 miles since completion and is for sale due to bereavement. Accompanying documentation consists of the aforementioned invoices, MoT/tax to July 2015, some old MoTs, current V5C and two parts catalogues (for MGB and MGB V8).
