Lot 228 - 1970 MG BGT
|Odometer reading||55,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £7,560|
The MGB was first introduced in May 1962 as a direct replacement for the MGA. Performance was brisk with power supplied by a 1798cc, four-cylinder iron block engine set within a monocoque lightweight bodyshell with crumple zones incorporated. October 1965 saw the introduction of the GT and was based on the already popular roadster. Designed by Pinninfarina, the new GT sported a hatchback giving useful access to the rear luggage space and a rear bench seat that enabled the car to be called a 2+2. Although acceleration was slightly slower than the roadster, top speed was better by 5mph due to the increased aerodynamic efficiency.
Offered in splendid condition with the original registration number, this green GT example with black interior, two owners from new, has covered just 55,000 miles. Within the history file is a good amount of documentation with plenty of bills to help any bidder understand the care of ownership. We are informed by the vendor she drives perfectly and is in super order having just had a complete service including new brake discs and brake pads, intercooler, fan blades and of course a change of oil. We are also informed that "as one would expect, there is literally nothing it needs" and it will carry an MoT test certificate valid until March 2017. A great example of a fabulous British sports car.
