Lot 114: MG B GT

Classic Car Sale, Charterhouse (22 April 2012)

The MG B has a significant birthday in 2012, reaching the grand old age of fifty! Introduced in 1962 to replace the MG A, it was quite a departure from previous models as they had monocoque bodies rather than a separate chassis as used in all previous MG models. The GT version was added to the range in 1965 and was dubbed the poor man's Aston Martin by the motoring press. Production continued until 1980, with various cosmetic changes taking place throughout. The most obvious visually being the introduction of black rubber bumpers and increased ride height from 1975. This tax exempt

chrome bumper GT has been restored and maintained by a retired garage proprietor and had a complete respray in British Racing green approximately three years ago. Other recent expenditure includes the reconditioning of the engine with an unleaded cylinder head, new bumpers and overriders, overhauling of the front suspension, rear brake shoes and pipes, front brake pads, Webasto sunroof, front and rear screen rubbers, halogen headlights and a service with the usual consumables. The vendor informs us that the MG is driving very well and will be driven to the auction from its present home in Cornwall and is now only for sale to fund a new MG project. V5C, ***MOT to April 2013 (not July 2012)***, tax to June 2012
