A very good example of a chrome bumper MGB which has had a lot of work carried out on it over the last 10 years and has since been well cared for. The gleaming black paintwork contrasts beautifully with the silver grey minilite style wheels whilst the tidy black interior also benefits from telescopic dampers fitted to the rear hatch. A large history file comes with the car which is a pleasure to drive. This car has recently been reviewed by ‘Classic Car Buyer’ magazine and has subsequently had a very positive whole page article dedicated to it in their January 22nd issue. The following is an extract from the review: ‘Just when you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to MGBs, something comes along to surprise you and this GT is a case in point……………..Being a 1973 model, this B comes with the black honeycombe grill inset in a chrome frame, which I’ve always felt is the nicest of all the front end treatments offered on the B over the years and finished in black, the car really looks elegant………….CCCR is justifiably proud of its body and paint, with concourse wins to their credit and a string of Astons and Ferraris awaiting attention in their workshop. All of which explains why even though the GT was a nice sound example, it received a thorough going-over before being put up for sale………Black is a notoriously unforgiving colour and the GT looks superbly straight with a lovely lustre to the paintwork. Elsewhere, the alloy wheels have been refurbished and the interior retains the standard-issue black cloth seats, all in nice original condition. The car has covered just 32,000 miles and it shows in the general condition of the detailing and fittings. During the work the GT received a new screen and driver’s side door glass to replace the scratched originals and , under the bonnet, the engine is standard B series, although the customary alloy rocker cover livens up its appearance. One very useful upgrade is the addition of modern gas rams to hold up the tailgate……….it certainly feels nicely sorted, as you’d expect from its originality and low mileage……..I’ve always preferred the MGB GT to the roadster and certainly the 2+2 and handy hatchback gives it the edge when it comes to practicality, especially when the whole family wants to enjoy their classic motoring. Not everybody agrees with me yet though, which makes the GT look pretty good value and as a refurbished original car, this one offers all the benefits of a restored car without the disadvantages. Plus, given its very tidy appearance, the price tag of £6995 seems very reasonable. Classic Car Buyer
