Roadster Salon's "Ace" and "Posh" MGB restorations represent great overall value, for British car enthusiasts and classic car fans alike. Our restorations are turn-key and come with a limited warranty.

The MGB is an excellent, lower cost alternative to our Fiat, Pininfarina and Alfa Romeo based restorations. They offer a similar sporty, open air driving experience with comparable performance to spiders of similar model years. While Roadster Salon is known for their Italian car expertise, we have applied the knowledge gained from our many years of restoration experience to the MGB line.

Please inquire about our packages for vintage Triumph models as well. Roadster salon also maintains an inventory of desirable Triumph Tr-6, Tr-7, Spitfire and Tr-8 convertibles. Custom restoration packages are available for these models, priced from $12,995.
