MBGT V8: Powertrain 4600cc/5 Speed/Power Steering

Milestone Classics are delighted to offer to market this remarkable MGB GT V8 that we have sold on two previous occasions and are delighted to have the opportunity to market again.

The car, an original chrome bumper GT, was previously owned by a local, highly respected, naval engineer who truly cherished his car for nearly twenty years. In 2003, after six years of use as a daily driver the shell was badly corroded and a full body restoration using a replacement shell was commissioned.

The objective of the project was set by the owner – he wanted to create the best specification & fastest V8 GT possible. The MG was despatched to highly respected specialist Horam Classic Restorations, East Sussex. Horam sourced a replacement shell at a cost in excess of £6,500 and all mechanical components were systematically refurbished or replaced.

Mechanical upgrades:

A new, and very desirable, Powertrain Engineering 4600cc engine was purchased through the MG Owners Club. Originally destined for Morgan the last eight remaining engines were snapped up by the MGOC and offered to club members to build their ultimate V8.

·Offenhauser manifold with Edelbrock carb,
· R380 5 speed gearbox
· Power steering (ez steer conversion)
· MG RV8 coil over front suspension and parabolic rear springs to match performance
· Minilite wheels (not replicas)
· New luxury leather interior.
· Replacement Chrome
High quality professional respray

The finished car was sent to Gerald Dale Motorsport to go on their rolling road and the results surpassed all expectations

The engine produced 219BHP and 287.3lb ft @ 5,303 RPM. The factory V8’s are rated at 137BHP and the Frontline Development MGLE 50 that costs in excess of £65,000 is rated at 213BHP.

It is an superb car to drive, looks stunning, is utterly reliable and one of the fastest most capable MGB’s on the road today. If I had the space this is the one that I would buy, use and enjoy……she is utterly addictive.
