Lot 115 - 1979 MG B GT
|Odometer reading||82,620 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,688|
Registered for the first time in August 1979, this delightful MG B GT in Carmine Red is a credit to its enthusiastic owners. Accompanied by updated MGOC-sourced deep red leather seats and with just two former keepers, the current vendor decided this was the perfect purchase for him and his wife to enjoy MG motoring. Having been looked after without regard to cost and with the bills including up-rated stainless steel exhaust and fuel tank and recent engine rebuild with an unleaded head, you can certainly appreciate why this was such an attractive proposition. This MG B GT Coupé, which has been garaged all its life, has since had further upgrades to accommodate the rigours of modern motoring including power steering, Revotec electric fan and a glass sunroof which, we believe, was fitted post-production and boasts no leaks.
The current vendor has thoroughly enjoyed caring for this car over the past 12 years and, on the advice of his local garage, recently even took the precautionary step of replacing the rear sills to ensure there is no rust that can affect the car in the near future. Selling purely due to health reasons, this plucky MG's impressive history includes countless bills, past MoT test certificates, original tool kit, workshop manual and handbooks, Haynes manual, MG Owners' Club magazines and even a cover for future care. With an MoT test valid until May 2016 and such a comprehensive background, this car boasts the kind of care that many vehicles ten times its value would covet!
