1967 MGB GT

A very smart example imported from dry state America many years ago; a very straight early three-synchro car; aluminium bonnet; Webasto and wires

This Primrose Yellow BGT comes with a BMIHT letter of origin stating the car was manufactured in March 1967. The letter is dated November 1997, the time it was imported from an Amerian dry state into the UK according to the vendor.

He has owned the car for some years, running it only occassionally. The car starts and runs nicely, the brakes, although working, will need some recommissioning through lack of use.

As one would expect of a dry-state car, the bodywork is very sound and it has clearly been loved for a long time. It has a Webasto sunroof and retains lots of original features including the steering wheel.

There is little else in the file (as is so often the case with American imports), but the car can be taken on face value as a nice genuine example. These early MkIs are so much nicer in detail than the later cars, and are few and far between, especially in such solid order.

An MGB is easy to convert to RHD should the new owner so desire, or simply use as is and enjoy some Continental motoring in 2022...
