1978 MG MGB Race Car

This cracking little MGB race car in Daffodil yellow and affectionately known as       Juicy Lucy  was owned by my wife from 2002 until 2009 during which time she and I regularly competed in various sprints and hill climbs and some MG Car Club race meetings. Prior to her ownership in 1995 the car was the subject of a complete rebuild, photographic evidence of which is contained within the considerable history file. Also within that file are photographs of the internals of the engine showing the upgrades carried out to the cylinder head during the rebuild. Since then Lucy's competitive life has continued by way of various track days and more sprints and hill climbs during which time she has always been regularly maintained. Her specification includes fuelling through a 45DCOE side draught Weber carburettor and Facet race fuel pump, 4 speed all synchro gearbox, Aeroquip oil and brake lines and large oil cooler, alloy rocker cover, electric cooling fan, oil catch tank, 800lb competition front springs with competition shock absorbers and stiffer front anti-roll bar, brake cooling ducts, headlamp cowls, Works hard top, OMP race seats with 5 point race harness seat belts, Safety Devices roll cage, Lifeline fire eater system, aluminium race fuel tank, alloy bonnet, Fibreglass boot lid (originals also with the car) and Minilite alloy wheels. Lucy has always been a good reliable car for club events and will no doubt give hours of pleasure to the next lucky owner. Huge fun for little money at £12,950
