Lot 131 - 1970 MG B GT
|Odometer reading||44,599 miles|
|Result||Sold - £4,480|
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. The acceleration of the GT was slightly slower than that of the roadster due to its increased weight, although top speed was improved by 5mph to 105mph due to better aerodynamics.
This stunning little MGB GT is presented in blue with contrasting black leather trim, an older restoration but in very good condition today, this example was purchased by our vendor in November 2015, garaged during winter months and is well maintained. The vendor reports that the MG runs and drives very well indeed and sounds superb when on song. The MGB is offered with many invoices detailing the restoration, previous MoT test certificates and the current UK registration document. Offered at no reserve, we are sure this wonderful example will be huge amounts of fun for its new custodian.
