This 1970 MGB GT was completely restored by the MG specialist Tim Kelly (St Agnes, Cornwall) in 2001. In 2011 it had a new unused 1,860cc Stage 2 Peter Burgess engine fitted with waterpump, Alloy rocker cover and heavy duty clutch. The car looks stunning finished in red with Moss chrome wire wheels and a black interior. It has been fastidiously maintained and been continually updated since its rebuild (see below for detail) including new front calipers, new uprated semi elliptic road springs and new stainless steel exhaust. Mileage is based on total of original engine plus the new engine and can be supported by reference to historical MOTs.
