This 1973 MG B GT V8 was a UK supplied car when new. It is one of the 217 introduction cars built on the 23rd July 1973 in preparation for the release to the general public on the 15th August 1973. The accompanying Heritage certificate confirms this car is a matching numbers and colours edition.
In total MG built 402 B GT V8’s in Damascus Red with chrome bumpers. In the last 28 years the car has had one careful lady owner.
The B GT’s bodywork has been resprayed, keeping to the original colour. The low mileage of just 50,469 miles means the car has avoided needing a full rebuild. The paintwork is up to scratch with only minor blemishes. It stands on nice alloys with good tyres. The chrome brightwork is also in very fine condition.
Inside there is lovely blue cloth upholstery, walnut burr inlay and blue vinyl door cards. Stepping into the car on the left you will detect the absence of a steering wheel. Further inspection reveals this “eight” has the steering wheel on the right hand side. Not surprising as only seven B GT V8’s were built with LHD.
Mechanically the car has received perfect care and boasts a few nice upgrades. Over the years a new fuel tank was fitted, as was the radiator and heating matrix. The carburettors have been retuned. The engine had previously been fully overhauled. As our Swedish lady required more power and exhaust sound, a Isky 256 Supercam camshaft and stainless steel sports exhaust were fitted.
Accompanying the car is a large document file with the heritage certificate, invoices and general information about the car.
This wonderful and above all rare MG B GT V8 with a brilliant colour scheme is in excellent shape!
