Patrick Tighe’s MGB Roadster




Patrick’s has owned his 1973 MGB for the last ten years. It was first purchased in Ealing in November 1973 and it has had 4 previous owners.


The last owner was a BL engineer who did a few modifications to the car such as, having the engine bored out to 1995 cc, a sports exhaust fitted and up rated brakes. Patrick did not really find this out until the head gasket failed and had to be replaced.

The last owner had the car for a lot of years and rebuilt the car starting with a bare metal respray and judging by the bills in this file no expense was spared. The paint work on this car is approx 28 yrs old and still has a good shine to it.

Most owners name their car, usually a girl’s name but this one is referred to as Ugo and is maintained by Patrick.
