1973 MGB GT Coupe


The MGB was first introduced in May 1962 as a direct replacement for the MGA. Performance was brisk with power supplied by a 1,798cc four cylinder iron block engine set within a monocoque lightweight body shell with crumple zones incorporated. October 1965 saw the introduction of the GT and was based on the already popular roadster. Designed by Pininfarina, the new GT sported a hatchback giving useful access to the rear luggage space and a rear bench seat that enabled the car to be called a 2+2. Although acceleration was slightly slower than the roadster, top speed was better by 5mph due to the increased aerodynamic efficiency.

This charming example was acquired as a rust-free car from California by a passionate Belgian classic car enthusiast who then undertook a programme of restoration works with no expense spared. The engine and gearbox were rebuilt, and the bodywork refinished from a bare shell to a high standard. We understand the MG drives extremely well with no faults observed. A well sorted example of a perennially popular fuss-free classic car.
