Sold for £ 115 (US$ 153) inc. premium
1967 MGB GT
Registration no. HAM 350E
Conceived in the late 1950s and launched in 1962, the MGB was mechanically similar to the preceding MGA, though with unitary-construction bodyshell. To compensate for the newcomer's increased weight, the existing B-Series engine was stretched to 1,798cc, and the MGB's aerodynamically efficient lines made the most of the 95bhp available to achieve a top speed which just bested the magic 'ton'. A 'right first time' design that changed little over the years apart from the adoption of a more robust five-main-bearing engine in 1965 (fitted from the start of GT production that autumn), a minor facelift for 1970 and the adoption of plastic bumpers (to comply with US legislation) for 1975, the MGB enjoyed an eighteen-year production life and sales totalling in excess of 500,000 cars.
This MGB GT has been in storage for some considerable time. Sold strictly as viewed, it is offered for restoration and without reserve. The vehicle is accompanied by a Swansea V5 registration document.
