There’s nothing quite like an early 70s MGB GT, is there? 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 car is no exception, and I feel you’ll struggle to find a better one for this price. Being painted in Black Tulip (a dark purple colour), it’s very rare, as the colour was only produced for one year. It’s had a great deal of work during its life, which I will detail throughout the ad. The ‘feel’ of the car, both in terms of build quality and the way that the car drives, clearly shows that the standard of work carried out has been very good indeed. MOT until March 2018.

The car was owned by an MGOC-member enthusiast who spent a great deal of time and money stripping and rebuilding the car a few years back. The car fires up beautifully idles healthily. It pulls strongly and sounds great. The car also rides particularly well and the servo assisted brakes are also very good! The car is properly soundproofed so doesn’t clatter and bang like so many BGTs do – it’s a really nice thing to drive. Oil pressure is spot-on, and the car does not overheat. Overdrive is fitted, and functions fine. An oil cooler is fitted, along with a spin-on oil filter conversion. Other sensible modifications include electronic ignition, 12v battery and a halogen headlamp conversion.

Bodily, the car is tidy. Part of the restoration included a full glass-out professional respray – it has a very deep finish and a fantastic shine. Of course, as it’s a few years now since the car was painted, there are a few little imperfections, but nothing to worry about at all. I’ve done my best to photograph them as well as possible. It’s certainly not rotten, though, it’s just not a concourse car! The metal behind the seams is nice and solid – you can feel it under the dashboard and inside the boot. The chromework shines well.

The car appears to be completely solid throughout. Sills, castle sections, floorpans, chassis legs and spring hangers all appear to be in good order. It looks to have had new sills at some point, and these are the correct vented type. The Rostyle wheels have been repainted at some point and present well, and the tyres all have good tread.

The interior is very clean indeed, having had new seat covers and foams, door cards, carpet, steering wheel, gear lever gaiter, etc. The headlining is in good condition, and it’s a nice place to be! The engine bay is clean and tidy (and, body colour), but could be detailed to make it even nicer.

There’s quite a bit of old paperwork with the car, including plenty of pictures etc of the restoration, along with bills and receipts, etc. All in all, this is an absolutely stunning little car that is absolutely ready to be used and enjoyed. If you’re looking for a reliable car that could even be used everyday, this might just be the one for you.
