1973 MG MGB GT, chrome, overdrive, lots of spares For Sale

1973 MG MGB GT With a heavy heart, I am selling my 1973 MG B GT, "Maggie". I've owned the car for just over two years, having bought from a gentleman who owned her for over twenty years. Viewings recommended, contact me to arrange. - Red MG MGB GT - Only 4 previous owners (including myself) - First registered March 1973 (Built at the end of 1972) - 107,000 genuine miles - 1.8L Straight 4 BMC B-Series engine - 4-speed + overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears - Chrome Bumpers - Chrome Rostyle Wheels (very hard to find!) - Leyland ST style front spoiler - Webasto vinyl sunroof - Spare wheel under boot floor - 'Historic Vehicle' tax class (Zero tax to pay) - MOT exempt In her history, she's had some modifications to bring her up to some modern conveniences, including: - Chrome Motolita steering wheel - Electronic Ignition (with 'hybrid' distribution, you can switch between electronic and mechanical points) - Body respray to Porsche 'Guards Red' - Rebuilt original twin-SU carburettors with uprated K&N air filters - Aluminium rocker cover - Stainless steel exhaust - Conversion to 1x 12v battery - Quartz halogen headlight upgrade - Waxoyl underseal - Retractable seatbelts for the front seats - Kenlowe electric radiator fan - Full engine rebuild in July 1994, including: - an uprated Kent 714 camshaft - lead-free Stage 2 cylinder head More recently during my ownage of her, she's also received: - New clutch (plate, cover and release bearing) (Oct 2018) - New front brakes (discs, pads and calipers) (2017) - New front bumper (2017) - New alternator (Feb 2019) - New fan belt - Two oil changes (one yearly) - New spark plugs - New HT leads - Vintage-style black/chrome number plates I'm selling her as my circumstances have changed and need something more suitable. She's been my only car for two years, and I've driven her nearly every weekend, all year round. In the interior, she's very clean and tidy, no issues. On the exterior, the repaint seems a bit thin and is starting to wear down in some places with a little bit of surface bubbling (but doesn't seem to be getting bigger). Minor rust spots in the usual places. Mechanically she's very sound, starts reliably, MOTs have passed first time every year since at least 2013, and I have MOT certificates dating back to 1988, along with lots of other documentation, receipts and work invoices collected over the years. Included in the sale are lots of spares and original fittings, as seen in the photos, including: - Travel toolkit - Original front chrome bumper - Original steering wheel - Original centre console trim panel - Original fixed seat belts - Original air filter casings plus spare filters - Spare spark plugs - Various new carburettor gaskets - Spare fuel pumps (unknown condition, seems clean) - Spare wiper blade - Period French headlight filters - Spare distributor cap - New unused oil filter - Box of assorted cables, switches, gauges, lights, fittings, etc - Original number plates (modern white/yellow style) - Original rocker cover - Spare Porsche 'Guards Red' paint - Various consumables (Grease, brake/clutch fluid, engine oil, air filter oil) - Grease gun - Spare trim pieces (door handles, air vent, etc) - Spare fan belt - Air flow meter (useful for tweaking carburettors) She's the perfect car for somebody looking to get started with classic motoring, or someone looking for an easy running project. As I mentioned, I've used her practically every weekend, summer and winter, rain and shine. If you want any more information or pictures or to arrange a viewing, please contact me.
