This Damask Red rubber-bumper MGB GT has been subject to a total professional restoration and enhanced with a host of desirable upgrades.
There are over £20k worth of bills with the car – somebody else has spent the money so you don’t have to!
The MG is a UK car from new, built, according to its Heritage Certificate, in February 1976 and delivered to Southgate, London. It was originally optioned with Rostyle wheels and an overdrive gearbox.
In 1992 the car was restored by Austin-Healey Specialists, Murray Scott-Nelson. The body rebuild included complete new sills (all three sections) and there is a photographic record of this work being done so you can see it was carried out to the highest standards. Subsequently the body was thoroughly rustproofed ensuring it has remained superb today.
Following the restoration the MG was treated to all the extras and upgrades you can think of. This includes the following –
Hydraulic power steering conversion
Electronic ignition conversion
Kenlowe electric cooling fan
Electric window conversion
Minilite alloy wheels with Pirelli tyres
Engine rebuild including unleaded conversion
Telescopic shock absorber conversion
Moto Lita leather steering wheel
EBC drilled and grooved brake discs and EBC pads
Stainless sill covers
Gas bonnet struts
Stainless steel exhaust
Stainless steel petrol tank
Upgraded heater fan and matrix
Period vinyl roof and glass sunroof
All new interior including full black leather retrim
K&N air filters
The list goes on…
The car has a huge history file with all previous MoTs, Heritage Certificate and all previous restoration bills and photos. Along with plenty of recent invoices for maintenance and servicing.
Superb condition throughout – excellent exterior with only a few minor marks to the paintwork, immaculate inside and, crucially, totally rust free underneath.
Drives beautifully. Mechanically it’s spot on with superb oil pressure, perfect temperature, slick gearbox and overdrive and excellent brakes and suspension. The power steering is superb and makes the usually heavy steering light work but with great feel too.
Valued at £9000 in 2014. Just passed its MoT with no advisories. A very sorted MGB GT that’s had a fortune spent on it. Ready to drive and enjoy.
