Footnotes

  • The popularity of factory hardtops for its MGA predecessor and the success of the Coupé variant influenced the decision to produce a closed version of the MGB that would provide the increased practicality and refinement being demanded by a maturing sports car market. Styled by Pininfarina, the MGB GT Coupé arrived in 1965 to be greeted by universal acclaim. The adoption of a stylish fastback bodyshell enabled the provision of two occasional rear seats which, when folded flat, created a generous load platform accessible via the rear tailgate. The more robust five-bearing B-Series engine was fitted to the GT right from the start, and when the Abingdon production lines finally stopped rolling, over 125,000 MGB GTs had been built.

    This MGB GT comes with extensive history including bills from marque specialists Brown & Gammons for a replacement engine (approximately 20,000 miles ago). 'JRC 139N' has seen little use over the last five years, covering only some 1,000 miles, and is described by the vendor as very reliable and driving very well. Like the engine, the gearbox is said to be very good and the overdrive works, while the interior benefits from replacement seats. Finished in Flamenco Red with black interior, this clean and tidy MGB GT is offered with MoT to February 2014 and Swansea V5 registration document.
