1977 MGB GT

A good usable starter-classic; Minilite-style wheels, Webasto; o/d; driven 40 miles to the sale; classic motoring on a tight budget

First registered in May 1977, this mid-period rubber bumper BGT looks to be in good usable order having driven well over 40 miles to the sale.

The receipts on file indicate a major overhaul way back in 1992 and a paint invoice from 2017 - when we believe the current coat was applied. This has been done in a workman-like manner, which won't be winning any prizes but is perfectly servicable and could be further improved with some applied elbow-grease.

Being a late-ish model, it comes with an overdrive and also has a Webasto sunroof for those sunny days to come. The interior would clean up well although there are a few trim parts on the driver's doors that need to be sourced - an easy job of course on any MGB!

The bodywork looks in sound order, its most recent MOT expiring in June 2018 which showed no advisories. The car has covered a mere 260 miles since and has been kept under cover which bodes well.

There are five old MOTs on file, so we can't confirm the odometer reading of 91,400 miles is correct, but see no reason to doubt it.

If you are looking for a good 'user and improver' this could be your car. It has a good spec, solid body and probably the best supply of affordable parts to back up the ownership experience.
