The author

Roger Williams was born in 1940. Aircraft were his first love, and he joined the de Havilland Aircraft Company after leaving school, but quickly added motor cars to his list of prime interests. He completed his apprenticeship and studies, and built two Ford-based 'specials' before family and career interests took pride of place. However in 1986 he started his own consultancy business, which allowed him to restore numerous MGBs, a Triumph TR6 and a Triumph Stag. An acknowledged expert in his field, he has written several books covering both Triumph and MGB models, including titles for Veloce’s SpeedPro series, Enthusiast’s Restoration Manual series, and The Essential Buyer’s Guides.
