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 1968 MG BGT is the desirable manual with overdrive version, and it has had only three owners from new, two of these were husband and wife. The car was subject to a restoration in 1990, and the parts and labour invoices are supplied with the car, but the vendor is looking for the pictures of this and will add them if found. The vendor states that the car is in good solid condition, and that it runs and drives very well with a working overdrive.

The structure of the car appears to be very sound, and the paintwork is good but not perfect. The interior is mostly good, with good leather seats, but the door cards and some of the trim is a little ragged around the edges. Overall this is a good, useable classic that can be enjoyed as is or can be tidied over time to the new keeper’s requirements.
