At Milestone Classics we like our MGB’s and when offered this remarkable car in part-exchange we simply could not resist…….
History - In the early 1970’s Roy Simmons was a motor racing professional running a 1967 MGB GT. He liked the car but the combination of corrosion and losing out to Escort MK1’s at traffic lights forced a regretful sale. Fast forward 25 years and Roy is running his own business (Roy Simmons Engineering) and looking for a new challenge. The answer was to build a MGBGT upgraded to deliver a modern driving experience in a classic package.
The plan was simple – buy a decent MGB GT (not easy), invest lots of man hours and modify her into an engaging every day car that would be fun to use for the occasional track day…….

The final result in an MGB GT unlike any MGB GT that we have ever sold. When you open the bonnet everything looks ‘right’ and the running gear/chassis are well matched & beautifully balanced. The traditional low down torque that you expect is replaced by an engine that revs freely - an utterly different soundtrack – and the upgraded brakes & suspension give the driver confidence to exploit this remarkable car to the full
