Lot 191 - 1981 MG B GT
|Odometer reading||32,562 miles|

The MGB was launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA. Introduced as a four-cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in 1965 with production continuing until October 1980. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina with the launch of its sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the GT offered the utility of a hatchback while retaining the style and shape of a coupé.
This MGB GT was originally registered on 1st June 1981 and has undergone some restoration work of late. The coachwork is in pretty good order and the interior has been re-trimmed in leatherette, this appears to have been done to a good standard. A wooden dashboard has also been fitted making the whole cabin area more luxurious than the original set-up. We are advised LVR 984W drives well and the overdrive on the gearbox functions as it should. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate, MGB's have received substantial press coverage of late confirming what great value for money they represent in the current market.
