1978 MGB  (Lucy) Largely rebuilt this summer for competition with the MG Car Club and other event organisers. This cracking little MGB race car just repainted in Yellow recently competed at Silverstone with Equipe GTS in their end of season 3 hour relay race as part of a two car team against stiff opposition and was placed 5th in a field of 25 teams. During the summer the engine was completely rebuilt to a very high standard and whilst the engine was being rebuilt, the engine bay was finished to the same high standard as the rest of the car and all under-bonnet ancillaries were replaced at the time. It comes completely ready to race for next season with new seat belts and new fire eater system and all of the moving parts thoroughly checked and replaced as necessary. This car has a long and colourful racing history and it was regularly competed in sprints and hill climbs and various race meetings since the mid eighties, 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.  The specification includes fuelling through a 45DCOE side draught Weber carburettor and Facet race fuel pump. It is fitted with a 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 are fitted along with cowls to the headlamps , "Works" hard top, OMP race seats with 4 point race harness seat belts, "Safety Devices" roll cage, "Lifeline" fire eater system and an aluminium race fuel tank. The car has an alloy bonnet and Fibreglass boot lid and the originals are also with the car along with a spare set of "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 and a great way into the world of Motor Sport. £14,950
