1974 MGB GT - Aconite - Chrome bumper, Wires MGBGT MG BGT SOLD

Sold by RMC Classics
*Many more pictures can be seen via the link on my website*

There’s nothing quite like an early 70s MGB GT. The perfect mix between 60s sportscar design and the refinements of the later cars. These cars are a fantastic investment, with prices dramatically rising all of the time. This is one of the very last of the chrome bumper cars – it is NOT a conversion. If you’re looking for a nice, straight (but not perfect!) example to use, enjoy and tinker with – then this is probably the car for you! Painted in a very rare colour, along with the chrome wire wheels, means this car attracts a great deal of attention wherever you go.

I originally sold this car around 5 years ago and it’s covered around 5000 miles since then, and has had various works carried out on it in that time to keep the car as an excellent usable classic. The gentleman I originally bought it from was a panelbeater and he had restored the car during his ownership.

Bodily, the car is nice and straight. Obviously, because it’s quite a few years now since the car was fully repainted, there are a few small areas of very minor bubbling here and there, but having looked back at the pictures from the last time I sold the car, there isn’t a great deal of deterioration at all. The car presents very well indeed, as you can see in the pictures! In my opinion, it is much better than buying a car that’s been painted very recently, as there could be all sorts of horrors hiding underneath the fresh paintwork. The panelwork appears solid and straight, the gaps are very good and the doors shut with a satisfying ‘clunk’. The brightwork is all in good order with only minor pitting. The chrome wire wheels (all 5 of them) are in excellent condition and are fitted with matching tyres, with plenty of tread.

The interior is also very clean and tidy. The seats have been recovered with original type covers, and have had new foams fitted. The carpet set is in good condition, as is the dashboard which has been refinished. A nice wood-rimmed Moto Lita steering wheel has been fitted which completes the look. It’s great to see the car still retains its original spec interior – so many are messed around with and fitted with cheap, nasty covers. The headlining is in excellent condition, as are the door cards. A CD player has been fitted in the centre console.
The engine starts readily and runs well, ticking over at around 750rpm, just as it should. I drove the car back 100 miles from purchasing, and it drives just as an MGB should! Oil pressure is excellent and there are no overheating problems whatsoever.The brakes are nice and sharp, thanks to the fitted servo, and a battery cut-out switch has also been fitted – both sensible additions. The 4-synchro overdrive gearbox selects gears nicely without fuss and overdrive engages quickly. A stainless steel fuel tank has been fitted.

You can see in the pictures that the engine bay is tidy (and, body colour – it was repainted at the time of the restoration) – and could be detailed further to look very nice indeed. Exhaust note is great and the car pulls and drives as it should.

I have various bills and receipts from the car’s history, along with the BMH Heritage certificate confirming the car has always been this rare colour. Despite not needing an MOT, the car flew through a test before I purchased it. It is also, of course, tax exempt.

All in all, this is an absolutely stunning little car that is absolutely ready to be used and enjoyed. You won’t find many cars at this price that have been finished to this standard. I travel all over the country to view these cars and this one is particularly good for the money I’m asking. If you’re looking for a show-standard car, please double your budget and look elsewhere, but if you’re looking for a nice, tidy, usable car that you can enjoy and improve as you go, then this is probably the car for you!
