The fixed-roof MGB GT was introduced in October 1965. Production continued until 1980, although export to the U.S. ceased in 1974. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking greenhouse designed by Pininfarina and launched the sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the B GT offered the utility of a station wagon while retaining the style and shape of a coupé. This new configuration was a 2+2 design with a right-angled rear bench seat and far more luggage space than in the roadster. Relatively few components differed, although the MGB GT did receive different suspension springs and anti-roll bars and a different windscreen which was more easily and inexpensively serviceable.
This lovely example is presented in white with red leather interior. This wonderful British classic has been extensively rebuilt over the last eight years to a high standard and using some new parts where necessary. The history file contains many invoices for all the parts renewed and a list of the work carried out in chronological order. Its interior is in excellent condition with the walnut dash gleaming as it should, complementing the red leather and white piping to the front and rear seats. Its 1800cc engine is mated to a four-speed gearbox, with overdrive which makes it great for modern day driving and is ready for the next owner to enjoy.
