1970 MGB GT - British Racing Green, Wire Wheels SOLD

Sold by RMC Classics
More pics here: - details above

There’s nothing quite like an early MGB GT, is there? The perfect mix between 60s sportscar design and the refinements of the later cars (4 synchro gearbox, etc). These cars are a fantastic investment, with prices dramatically rising all of the time.This car is no exception, and I feel you’ll struggle to find a better one in this sort of price range. It’s had a great deal of work during its life, which I will detail throughout the ad.

The car has valid MOT until September 2018 (and MOT exempt thereafter!) and the past three MOTs since the restoration show no advisories.

The car had been taken off the road in 1999 and kept in a dry garage, awaiting restoration. The owner passed away and the car was bought and restored by the previous owner, around three years ago. This included major works, which have included the following:

·   Full bodywork restoration, which included a glass-out professional respray in British Racing Green
·   Major structural restoration which included spring hangers, complete new boot floor… the list goes on and on!
·   Refurbished wire wheels
·   Various mechanical works including new brakes and suspension overhaul
·   12v battery conversion
·   Carburettor rebuild, timing adjusted and the car set up correctly
·   ..and much, much more!

The original registration ‘TOE222H’ is still on the car, and will remain there for the buyer. Needless to say, the car has been christened ‘Toni’!

The car has been used as a reliable and regular car for local use. It’s not a show car, but does present nicely, as you can see from the pictures. If you’re looking for a car to use and enjoy, that you’re not afraid to use, then this is probably the one for you!

The car fires up beautifully idles healthily. It pulls strongly and sounds great. I have driven the car for a couple of hundred miles in the past week or so and car doesn’t appear to use excess oil or water. Oil pressure is spot-on, and the car does not overheat. The overdrive gearbox is nice and tight and does not jump out of gear. The rear axle is nice and quiet, with no clunks or whines.

Bodily, the car presents nicely. As mentioned earlier was repainted a few years ago and has a good shine. Of course, as it’s a few years now since the car was painted, there are a few very minor imperfections, but nothing to worry about at all. It’s not a concourse car! The wing-top seams are in excellent order, as are the door and wing bottoms. The chromework is original and, whilst a little pitted, doesn’t detract from the overall appearance. The car appears to be nice and solid underneath – again, no advisories on any of the tests since the full restoration. There is evidence that the car has had complete new sills fitted in the past, and these remain nice and solid.

The interior is a nice place to be. Bar the new Moto-Lita steering wheel, it’s very original, with the correct seat covers and door cards etc – even the original rubber floor mats! It’s in very good all-round condition, but again, not all brand new.

The engine bay is clean and tidy, and could be detailed to make it even nicer. There’s quite a bit of paperwork showing what’s been done in recent years, but sadly nothing from before its layup. There’s even a leftover BRG paint which matches the paint on the car, so there’s plenty left for anything needing doing in years to come.

As stated, it’s not a concourse bare-metalled show winner, but it’s a good, serviceable car that hasn’t been ‘tarted up’ too much throughout its life. These cars are a great investment, especially now the MOT exemption rules have been announced, making them much more desirable than the later cars.
