About this MG MGB GT

First registered August 1974 (N Reg) this is one of the last chrome bumper cars prior to the introduction of the rubber bumper version later in 1974; (chassis numbers, 360301 onwards). Finished in Bracken with part Black Leather interior, (the seats are just lovely) and Minilite wheels this Overdrive car has recently returned to these shores following a sojourn in the South of France where it was taken in 2011. This BGT is in very good overall condition and drives very well. There are on file sheaf of parts invoices prior and post export to France. Importantly in 2002 we note that a Mr Lewis the then keeper purchased a number of body sections, namely: Front Wings, Doors, Outer Sills, Castle Rails and Rear Wing quarter sections. As far as we can reasonably determine these sections were fitted to the car and painted at that time and these repairs of those known vulnerable sections of the MGB have stood up well subsequently. The car sits nicely has nice panel gaps and is, in our opinion, altogether a very good example. In addition to the parts invoices, there are also on file a number of old MoT certificates going back to 1998 when the car had recorded 86,000 miles, so the MOT History would suggest, although we cannot warrant this, that this BGT has recorded around 110,000 miles. We note from the car’s paperwork that in August 1979 the car was purchased by a Mr Cave of Wimborne, Dorset with 31,000 miles recorded for £2,295 from Keith Motors of Christchurch. It would seem that its UK life has been, in the main, in the Bournemouth and Poole area. So, a comforting amount of history accompanies this car. The MGB in either its Roadster or GT form a great entry point into classic car ownership; inexpensive parts are readily available and there is an active owners club and social scene. Moreover, they are, in our experience reliable cars and remain, although they are steadily increasing in value, inexpensive.
