1972 MGB GT

Good, useable MGB GT with lots of history and much recent expenditure; overdrive; full-length sunroof; Minilite-style alloys

First registered in January 1972, this MGB GT comes with a good file of invoices back to 1986 to show regular upkeep. This included a full bodywork restoration in 1988 with new front wings, rear wing sections, door skins etc. A full-length sunroof was also fitted at the same time.

A dozen old MOTs show that it has covered some 30,000 miles since 1996. In 2018 it was waxoil treated underneath and received a new radiator and clutch slave cylinder. Around £2,500 was spent in 2005 on new castle sections, jacking point and sill repairs. Other expenditure of note includes a new propshaft in 2008; new rear leaf springs in 2002; reconditioned overdrive unit and new clutch kit in 2001; new Peco exhaust system, rear shocks and wishbone bushes in 2000; reconditioned stub axle/king pin assembly in 1999.

More recently, in August this year it was fitted with the following new parts: front brake discs and pads; caliper seals; flexible hoses; rear wheel cylinders and brake shoes; steering rack gaiters; wiper blades; fuse box; overdrive switch; oil and filter; full carpet set; seat cover set. A set of Minilite-style alloy wheels have also been fitted at some point in the not-too-distant past.

Starting promptly and running well as we have moved it around on site, with good 60psi oil pressure, it seems like a decent driver-quality MGB at a modest guide price.
