The MGB GT was introduced in October 1965, and production continued until 1980. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina and launched the sporty hatchback style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear boot lid, the B GT offered the utility of an Estate Car, while retaining the style and shape of a Coupe. The MGB GT did receive different suspension springs and anti-roll bars and a different windscreen. Although acceleration of the GT was slightly slower than that of the roadster, owing to its increased weight, the top speed improved by 5 mph to 105 mph because of better aerodynamics.

This is a 1968 MGB GT Mk2 which has been extensively restored to a very high standard, and has only had 3 previous keepers. The car is exceptional, and benefits from some very expensive knock-on Minilite style wheels with new tyres, and a Frontline front spoiler. The car has been converted to Hella headlamps, and has a Classic Car MGB LED conversion fitted. The exhaust system is fully stainless steel, including a three-branch manifold. The car runs and drives very well, and the overdrive is fully functional. The car has been MOT’d multiple times since 2006, and shows that only 10,000 miles have been covered since then.

Please note, the car will come with its original steering wheel and horn push, which are in very good condition, not the steering wheel shown.

This car is available for viewing by appointment from Friday 29th October at our office in Marchwood near Southampton.
