A truly stunning example that has been with the owner, a former BHG staff member, since the car was 2 years old.

Tasteful modifications abound, the result being one of the quickest, most tractable GTs we've experienced with handling and brakes to match.

The condition is superb, with lovely bodywork in a striking colour and a comfortable interior.

It would be impossible to build this specification car for the asking price, early viewing is advised.

Apologies for the quality of the main image...it was too sunny!

Bodywork

It outstanding condition with no issues, great panel fit and a lovely original feel to it.

Mechanical

The car is a revelation to drive and shows what can be achieved. The engine is a stage three conversion bored out to 1950cc with lightened and balanced flywheel, pistons, conrods and push rods, the sump is a baffled alloy item, it is running a 285 Piper camshaft, Aldon electronic ignition and 1 3/4" SU carburettors with ram pipes. The unit is producing about 120 bhp.

In addition, the car is lowered by 1 3/4" all round, the suspension has been polybushed all round with Spax shock absorbers front and rear, negative camber radius arms are fitted with a 3/4" anti-roll bar on the front and our own rose jointed rear together with a Panhard rod for axle location.

Brakes are grooved and vented with Mintex pads on the front together with Tarox grooved rear drums with Mintex shoes.

 

Exterior

Apart from the striking colour, the car is set off beautifully by the black 72 spoke competition wire wheels and complemented by chrome that is all in excellent condition. The car has been restored a few times to an extremely high standard. The folding vinyl sunroof works well and gives great open air motoring without the hassle of a hood.

Interior

The seats have been retrimmed in black leather and are in excellent condition being supportive and comfortable, everything is in fine working order, the carpets are excellent as it the headliner.

 

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.
