On offer is this delightful MGB GT finished in period Old English White with black trim and red carpets. The car has been with the last owner for many years and has clearly been cherished judging by its condition. Supplied new by Blakes Garages in Brentwood, Essex the car still sports its Essex registration number supported by the BL Passport to Service book and a Tectyl rustproofing certificate from Rust Prevention (Chelmsford) Ltd.

With the car is a thick history file dating back to the early 80s which includes receipts covering a replacement engine and consistent servicing suggesting that the car has been in constant use.

The car presents very well and looks extremely smart sat on a set of Minilite style alloy wheels, the bodywork is in very clean, solid condition and the interior is very tidy having had a new, high quality carpet set fitted not so long ago.

With overdrive fitted and a brake servo, the car drives very nicely indeed with good roadholding and fairly light steering.

Overall, a lovely example of a one of the last chrome bumper cars.

Available for viewing in our dry, well lit sales barn, by appointment please.



Solid throughout with no obvious issues, structurally strong, good panel gaps and generally as factory fit.


With regular servicing records, it is clear that the car has always been maintained to a good standard. Everything works as it should with lively performance delivered on our road test, a light clutch, strong brakes and correctly functioning overdrive.


Bright and clean,all of the brightwork is in good shape, the wheels as new and shod with recent tyres, the overall impression is very impressive with the colour really suiting the car.


All in good condition with all of the switches and gauges working correctly, supportive seats and a really excellent quality set of carpets make the interior a pleasant place to be.


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.
