The Appeal


The MGB is a bastion of the British classic car world, being one of the most widely owned models. And the GT hardtop has a dedicated following all of its own. 

This particular car is finished in an attractive shade of blue and features desirable chrome bumpers and an overdrive gearbox. It has received extensive mechanical servicing as well as new sills and door skins, making it a very useable car. 

We’re sure this car will make an excellent addition to someone’s garage, providing fun classic motoring at a very reasonable price.
