1977 MGB GT
Only 54,000 miles and four owners from new; restored and repainted in 2013; EZ electric power steering; Webasto sunroof; overdrive; many new parts; very smart indeed
Supplied new by Bishops Garage of Corbridge in August 1977, this lovely MGB has had just four owners since, the third of whom kept it for 25 years (1994 – 2019). It has only covered 54,000 miles to date with many invoices and old MOTs to warrant this figure.
In 2013 it had new seat covers and carpets, new propshaft, new front wings and a respray in the original Tahiti Blue. In 2014 it had a major mechanical overhaul with many new parts fitted including new brake discs and calipers; wheel bearings; all new ignition parts; all oils and fluids changed; new filters and gaskets; polybushed suspension; EZ electric power steering conversion etc, the bill for this lot coming to an eye-watering £6,568. It has only done 1,000 miles since.
The following year it had another £2,578 spend which included a new clutch kit; starter motor; radiator; braided oil pipes; core plugs; hoses plus a multitude of other items. The current keeper acquired the car in May 2019 and has improved it still further including a full service; new throttle cable; wiper blades; chrome wheel trims; Lucas sports coil; Lucas 45D4 distributor; Mountney 14" steering wheel etc. The original steering wheel is also included.
Fitted with a Webasto sliding sunroof and fully functioning overdrive, the car has an MOT until April 2023 with no advisories recorded. It also comes with the original owner’s handbook, 20 old MOTs, two sets of keys and a nice transferable number plate, KAW 66B. There are also 16 show plaques indicating that the car has attended many MG Club events over the years.
Starting promptly and running nicely as we have moved it around on site with good 60psi oil pressure, this is a really cracking MGB that is ready for a new owner to enjoy.
