1973 MGB GT V8 For Sale

This is a genuine, chrome bumper, factory MGB GT V8. The car has been restored as a retirement project over recent years and is now offered as a sound, usable example, which can be used and enjoyed as is, or could be improved over time if required. It comes with an unusual registration number – UUU 10M.

This very rare 1973 MGB GT V8 is an original chrome bumper model and is number 485 of 2591 built. The car has had 4 previous owners and has much history and many receipts over the years, together with old MOT certificates and copies of log book details with the original owners’ names and addresses. The car has a genuine mileage of 38, 590.

The car has undergone a lot of work during its life time and was purchased by the current owners in 2009, after it had been standing on a driveway for over 6 years.

The work started with the replacement of the inner and outer sills together with the castle rails. While the front wings were off all areas were examined for rust, and if found were rectified. The steel bonnet was replaced with an aluminium bonnet due to showing signs of rust. The rear wings were reworked and rust removed. The car has had a total bare metal re-spray (February 2013) in dark British Racing Green, with the glass removed, and a new passenger door fitted. It has a stainless steel exhaust together with a stainless steel petrol tank.

The front and rear suspension have been replaced with Spax on the rear, all bushes replaced and with new parabolic leaf springs. The front discs, calipers and pistons have been renewed along with the brake shoes and brake cylinders at the rear. The carburettors have been rebuilt and a new alternator added. New clutch master and slave cylinders have been fitted.

The car has its, now rare, original wheels (including the spare), in decent condition, although these would benefit from being refurbished.

The interior has been fitted with new carpets and replacement door cards, door cappings and recovered front seats with new foams. A wooden dash kit has been fitted. A Webasto type sunroof, in very good condition, is also fitted.

This is a lovely car which is very nice to drive, with working overdrive, and must be seen to be fully appreciated. The car was last serviced and passed its MOT in August 2016, with no advisories whatsoever. It has hardly been used since, except for the occasional run to keep things in good order.

This is an opportunity to acquire an example of this rare car, which is likely to increase in value over time. Valued by the MG Owners Club in May 2017, offers in excess of £15000 will be considered for this MG BGT V8.
