MGB GT 1972
Posted 2 weeks ago
MGB was produced at Abingdon England by BMC which then changed to British Leyland between 1962 to 1980. The MGB proved a very popular car that was also available in open roadster form and for a short production in GT form with a V8 engine fitted.
This matching numbers car was first registered in Jersey on the 15th June 1972. The original Buff log book comes with the car as well as a fairly comprehensive history file detailing service and maintenance works undertaken from the 1980's onwards. There are also hand books and manuals with the car.
The engine bay is in tidy / restored condition and one can see money has been invested here. Visible newish parts to include an aluminium radiator, heater valve, brake servo, hoses, heater valve etc.
Invoices show regular servicing and maintenance work has been undertaken. In 1991 and in 2017 extensive works were undertaken to this car and more recently works include Minilite wheels, front brake callipers, front suspension overhaul kits fitted, and new water hoses. The car has in 2020 had some tuning works undertaken by ourselves and is driving well with no know faults.
Invoices and photographs show extensive restoration works were undertaken to the body in 1991 with invoices totally £12,000 in labour and £2000 in parts. Many new panels were fitted as well as some mechanical upgrades.
Also in 2017 the car was repainted and underwent a "light" restoration. The car is slightly modified with its 15" minilite wheels , louvered bonnet and new front grille. The underside is excellent for an MGB of this period as they are quite prone to corrosion.
The interior condition suits its age. A Motolita steering wheel is fitted with dark Walnut veneers on the dash and centre console. The seats are trimmed in a hard wearing black cloth with red piping.
An Island car that has been looked after and well maintained throughout its life that drives well and has a good history file.
