This is one of the nicest and most useable MGB GT's we have come across. It is a 1972 model finiahed in Red with Blue/Black Interior. It has covered 98k Miles and was comprehensively restored in 2005 with invoices and photos and still presents beautifully today. She benefits from proper hydraulic Power Steering and drives like new.
Conceived in the late 1950s and launched in 1962, the MGB would turn out to be one of the most successful sports cars of all time. Attractively styled, cheap to run and easily maintained by the home mechanic, the 'B' carried on MG's traditional role of providing affordable, sports car motoring for the ordinary enthusiast.
The MGB was mechanically similar to the preceding MGA, though with unitary construction bodyshell instead of its forebear's separate chassis. To compensate for the newcomer's increased weight the existing B-Series four-cylinder engine was stretched to 1,798cc while the MGB's aerodynamically efficient lines made the most of the 95bhp available to achieve a top speed that just bested the magic 'ton'. The MGB's popularity remains undiminished today, one of the major factors being the continuing availability of spare parts and expertise, making it one of the easiest of classic sports cars to run and maintain.
Our car has the standard 1,798cc, four cylinder engine and twin carburettors. It has four speed gearbox with overdrive, and has been very well maintained and upgraded over recent years with electronic ignition, a Motalita steering wheel, parabolic rear springs, a new petrol tank, a new alternator, new tyres all round and a new clutch fitted. The car drives really well after all this attention. The main upgrade is the fitment of real Hydraulic Power Steering which seperates this car from all the others out there, she is a revelation to use and drive.
The MG had a photographic restoration carried out some years ago and the bodywork remains in excellent condition. The interior is also very good having had new carpets and seat trim and it has no rips or tears.
This is a beautiful example of an iconic car, with a huge history folder and a comprehensive recent restoration, she drives perfectly and is ready for her next owner!
