An outstanding restored MGB GT, fully reconditioned by CCH in Hull at a cost well in excess of the asking price, this lovely GT is finished in beautiful Jaguar Opalescent grey with grey leather trim piped in grey. Having covered less than 500 miles completion, the owner is only selling due to lack of use.

With everything either new, reconditioned or refurbished, the car needs nothing and with sprightly performance from the Ivor Searle remanufactured engine, the car is guaranteed to bring a smile on every journey.

Remarkably practical, nice GT's are now very sought after and it is rare to see one that has been so comprehensively restored.

For sale on behalf of the owner, the car is available to view in our dry, well lit sales barn, by appointment please.

Bodywork

Built around a dry state USA imported GT shell, the car is completely solid having needed minimal repairs prior to repainting. We have photos of before, during and after the restoration process to demonstrate the quality of the base bodyshell.

Mechanical

Everything is either new or refurbished, new brakes, steering, suspension and a quality remanufactured engine from Ivor Searle. The car has the all important overdrive and performed faultlessly on road test.

Exterior

The paint colour really suits the car and is set off nicely by the fully refurbished rostyle wheels shod with new tyres. All of the lighting equipment is new as are the bumpers and trim.

Interior

Beautifully retrimmed in quality dark grey leather with light grey piping, the interior is a strong feature of the car with an as new appearance including quality moulded carpets, a refurbished dashboard and a retro radio.

 

Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.

  • If you are going to use your MGB for everyday use, for competition, or your current gearbox is giving you trouble then our Mazda gearbox conversion might be an ideal solution for you.


  • When you own a classic car knowing where to get the best spare parts is crucial. We have a dedicated Parts Manager who will track down the best quality and hardest to find part for your car, we like to call this Automotive Archaeology, if it’s available ... we will find it.


  • Classic cars are special, and we can provide MOT testing for yours.


  • We clean and air dry the underside of your cherished classic and treat with a choice of clear or black waxoyl.


  • If you need to store your classic car for a short period or more long term, wouldn't it be reassuring to know that it was being stored by a highly skilled professional team who love their work?


  • When your car is with us we have a wide selection of courtesy cars for you to use.
