1970 MGB GT Coupe


• Mechanically very sound
• Recessed grill model
• Body sound and solid

The Background

This variant of the MGB GT, the fixed roof type, was introduced in 1965 and was designed by Pininfarina and really launched the sporty hatchback style, in fact it was named one of “Pininfarina’s most beautiful designs that aren’t Ferraris”. 

This body style had the style and shape of a coupe but still offered the utility and space of a station wagon with its 2+2 layout and right angled rear bench seat. It offered far more space than the roadster.  

The History

The Current owner has been in possession of the car for approx. 2 years. Prior to that the car was in storage for roughly 20 years.

The Paperwork

V5 Present, plenty of receipts and some photos for work carried out. The vehicle has been rarely used, with mileage increasing minimally after runs down the road to ensure all is in order.

The Interior

Stylish all black interior with chrome trims. It has had a drivers seat repair but just the worst of it, not a full renovation.

The Exterior

A good usable classic although not perfect, but very sound and solid, it could benefit from some very minor repairs, namely stone chips and minor blemishes. All wear is genuine and gives the car a character befitting its age and would certainly be a joy to the right owner who appreciates this patina!

The Exterior has had some panels resprayed to a good standard. Features the slightly rare recessed type grill. Overall tidy and very usable but certainly not show condition.

Original wire spoke wheels. tyres in good condition and chrome work in generally good condition.

The Mechanics

The vendor tells us this car is solid underneath. It's a car that has done about 500 miles a year and has been used recently for short journeys. However the mileage cannot be verified, Overdrive works, two new batteries, everything as it should be mechanically apart from the rev counter, which the vendor tells us is not working.

The engine is in keeping with its use, and all solid and running well. The vendor tells us its starts first time and runs well, making this a car to be well loved and used regularly! The vendor also tells us the vehicle was fitted with a stainless steel exhaust approx one year ago.

The Appeal

A very usable drivers car that is begging to be driven regularly and used well! 

Featuring all the patina you would expect from a car of this age from a life of use and enjoyment. certainly a gem to a driver or enthusiast.
