Classic Car Overview

1968 MG MGB GT The MGB is built to a simple, sensible formula and with simple, sensible technology, even for its time: The two-seater body, designed from the ground up as a no-roof roadster (not chopped-down from a contemporary sedan, such as the Morris Minor convertible) features quite deep and wide sills for good length-ways and twisting stiffness and during design, there was attention paid to the 1960s emerging technology of crash safety too, with an energy absorbing crush zones designed into the nose of the car. For consignment not to be outdone by the Triumph GT6, we offer up the MG version of the 3-door hardtop coupe, the MGB GT. Sporting leather seating, and a rear storage area as well as offering up 2 plus 2 seating, and silver paint this car shows a beautiful line and has added space. Yes, its still a sports car! Exterior Bathed in Silver, the paint is mostly nice with just a few faults, but no rust seen. Straight body lines, and that wonderful sloping rear hatchback if you will, MG has added an extra window to the sides for the rear bench. A longer rear quarter panel makes more room for the rear storage area, and a slightly larger car overall in length. All chrome and badging is very nice and all has a mirror-like finish. The same front fenders and rear taillights are used as the MGB. Wire wheels with knockoff hubs are shining on all 4 corners. Interior It doesnt get any better than a wonderful mixture of Oxblood leather and some black accenting for the interior surfaces. Door panels are beautiful with Oxblood leather broken up by black piping, and a black wrapped padded sill. The seats which all are beautifully preserved are wrapped in more Oxblood leather and have plenty of black piping delineating each panel of the front buckets and rear fender fitted bench. A nice texture of the leather has folds from light usage, but definitely no fading or wear to make note of. Pristine red carpet lines the floors and thresholds as well as the center hump. Very clean black MG badged embroidered floor mats are seen in front. The original dash is nicely padded and has all the correct gauges and toggles as well as a newer rally steering wheel, all neatly buttoned up in the front of the car. The rear cargo area is carpeted with matching red, although it shows some fading especially below the rear glass area. A white nice felted headliner floats seamlessly and tight above the passenger compartment. Drivetrain With its engine tag missing it is hard to tell if the engine is original, but it presents in an impressive clean maroon block and valve cover. This 1798cc inline 4-cylinder has dual SU HS4 carbs on the side to feed it, and a 4-speed manual transmission on back. To drive the rear wheels a 3.91 rear axle is noted. Have to give a shout out to the entire engine bay as it has been meticulously restored on all surfaces and presents as showroom. Undercarriage With virtually no rust, we note a very sturdy unibody undercarriage. New rack and pinion steering has recently been installed, and for a smooth ride this car utilizes front independent coil springs and rear leaf springs. A nice stainless steel exhaust snakes its way rearward from the engine header which is are stainless. Front disc brakes and rear drum brakes have calipers that look like new, and drums that show no rust. Drive-Ability This writer with my asphyxiation for British sports cars, had to have some seat time in this interesting and rarely seen MG. I was totally satisfied with all operations of the car, starting quickly, running smoothly, and just a very nice tool around several laps of the test track. Definitely more upscale than the GT6, and comparable power with its increased engine size. We note the original steering wheel is included, as well as tons of receipts! Overall a great example of the MG MGB GT, with its beautifully restored engine and bay, fantastic Oxblood leather interior, and extra storage to boot, and yes it is in the boot! It also was fun to use my boot generously to do my test drive, and simply smashing driver, and the wire wheels with knockoff hubs are in keeping with the Brit sports car tradition and keeping a smile on my face.
