1976 MGB GT V8

Chrome bumper conversion; genuine factory V8; owned for the last four years; walnut dash; a great little sports car

This respectable MGB started life in 1976 with rubber bumpers, a sunroof, striking primrose yellow paintwork and of course the rumbling V8 under the bonnet. Fortunately, at least one of these features still remains and is implied in the way of the subtle badges to the wings and radiator - the V8 engine.  
There is little early history but there are plenty of bills on file from the 1990s which include new doors, new carpets, a new exhaust system, bonnet, floor pans and the repaint to Old English White. It is assumed that the bumpers were also done at this time - a considerable amount of additional work having been carried out including removal and refitting of the engine and gearbox and multiple other parts replaced or improved. Its glass sunroof has also been replaced by a much nicer full-length Britax/Webasto.  
The body paint is starting to show some wear in the joins and sills but nothing too serious. The last MOT had no corrosion issues and runs until August 2021, the only advisory being a faulty hazard switch. Regularly MOTd and kept on the road, this popular variant of the B packs a V8 punch under the bonnet and is ready to drive away.
