1979 MGB GT

Description

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.

The car on offer here was rebuilt in 2016/2017. A desirable feature is the retractable sunroof. The car has gone through a 6 to 12V battery conversion, the engine has been re-built and an alarm was fitted. This car is in fantastic condition and an opportunity not to be missed.
