1966 MGB GT in red with black leather interior.
Introduced in May of 1962, the monocoque MG B was a welcome progression from the body-on-frame T-Series and MG A models that preceded it. The more modern construction resulted in weight savings (the car turned the scales at 2028lb), reduced manufacturing costs, and notably tauter handling. Initially, the B was only available in Roadster form - the Pininfarina-penned hatchback GT derivative, with 2+2 seating, not being offered until October 1965. At launch, the model was powered by a three-bearing version of the 1798cc B-Series engine that produced 95bhp at 5, 400rpm. However, this unit was replaced by a five-bearing unit two years into production. The MkII model of 1967 brought an updated manual gearbox with revised ratios and synchromesh. By the time GT production ceased in 1980, a total of 125, 282 are said to have been produced.
YHR 897E was built for export in November 1966 and despatched from the factory on the 2nd December 1966, landing in South Africa in the early days of 1967. Evidently subject to a previous repaint at some time in its life, this B GT is comes with a Heritage Certificate and a V5C registration document and is a stunning example. This cracking MGB GT has the preferred Manual Overdrive gearbox and whilst out on test drive performed just as she should with a strong engine and smooth gearbox with good oil pressure, a great entry level classic car that is ready for the summer months and show season. This is a car you’d be proud to take to events or could be kept in a collection. The paintwork displays a lovely sheen, and the interior is in good condition with no rips or tears. The body work is solid with no signs of rust or rot. Absolutely any inspection welcome. All major debit cards accepted. UK mainland delivery included. Please contact us for more information.
