Richard & Jean Culmer's MG B Roadster




This is Richard and Jean Culmer's MG B roadster. It was a project car built in 2010 by a mechanic in the MGOC workshops at Swavesey. The base car is indeed a chrome bumper K Reg.


It had a full bare metal respray and then received a new heart - a 2.9 litre 24 valve V6 Ford Cosworth engine - plus other uprated components. The engine is mated with a Ford 5 speed gearbox.


Bill Burton bought the car in 2011, and we bought it from Bill in 2020. The car is happiest cruising at around 70mph; it's not so keen on pottering around on little country lanes. It has plenty of get up and go if required!
