This is a factory MGB GT V8 first registered Dec 1973. It is generally standard apart from the colour.
The previous owner completed a full strip and had the bare shell restored including cills, lower wings etc. He had it painted as you see it in a BMW metallic blue. There is no trace of the original Harvest Gold colour, inside or out. I have record of his work.
Original Dunlop wheels are fair condition, with some typical deterioration to the chrome rims. There is a spare & all tyres have good tread.
Bumpers and overriders are original parts, no chrome loss, but not 'as-new'
It has a single 12V battery with an isolator switch.
Original over drive gear box - over drive on top.
My ownership has seen ongoing improvements to bring it up to standard as a usable car including;-
- rebuilt front suspension with poly bushes, slightly lowered new springs
- Frontline front caster angle reduction wedges
- uprated anti roll bar
- adjustable front lever arm shocks, standard at rear
- new rear springs with poly bushes
- has MGOC big bore exhaust , with a middle silencer
- new sound deadening underlay & blue carpets
- new seat foams, seat covers are original with the vinyl now dark blue, - similar for door cards
Assorted other details I can tell you about
The current MOT runs to September, but I'm happy to refresh
So not a show car, but very clean, mechanically excellent and a striking variant on the MGB theme, ready to be used & enjoyed.
