1974 MG B GT V8 For Sale

1974 MG B GT V8

The GT V8 variant of the MG ‘B’ arrived in 1973 as a limited edition model. These were UK-only market motor cars which utilised the Rover V8 3528cc engine, inherited from the Rover P5B, and were able to achieve a top speed of 125mph and 0-60 in 7. 7 seconds. Production ceased just three years later and today, the V8 is the more uncommon member of the ‘B’ family.

This original, factory-built 1974 example has matching numbers and was in the previous long-term ownership for approximately twenty-five years. The smart sports car has been upgraded at some point with a walnut dashboard and door cappings, and is equipped with a Webasto sunroof for all year round performance motoring. The MG is also fitted with a Moto-Lita wood rim steering wheel, a front air dam, front leather seats, a stainless exhaust system and electronic ignition. The V8 sits on its original road wheels and is described by its current custodian as good in most departments, although we are informed that the chrome bumpers are showing some signs of corrosion. A change of circumstances forces the very reluctant sale of this desirable motor car.

The large history file supplied contains the V5C registration certificate, a BMIHT certificate, invoices and a quantity of MOT test certificates dating back to 1987.
