Classic classics are very pleased to offer this lovely 1972 MGB GT Coupe finished in bright red with contrasting red leather seats. Having recently been re commissioned this very useable yet practical timeless classic is now ready to be enjoyed and cherished by its new owner. Riding on period refurbished Rostyle wheels and complemented by the all important chrome bumpers and recessed grille which indecently was only made like this for around 18 months, this MGB GT really must be viewed to be appreciated. Powering this MGB GT is the very usable and capable 1798cc engine mated to a 4 speed with overdrive gearbox making this car a pleasure to drive.
This particular MGB GT underwent a photographic restoration in the early 1990’s and has obviously enjoyed a cherished and closeted life since then. We have a file of invoices and photographs to support the restoration including one from the well known MG specialist Tim Knight for £7419 in August 1991!
These MGB GT’s are an excellent usable and affordable classic car for anyone wishing to re live there youth or even get on the classic car ladder without breaking the bank.
It was in October 1965 that the 1st fixed roof MGB GT was launched and it remained in production until 1980. The MGB GT benefited from the ground-breaking Pininfarina “Greenhouse” design which combined the rear deck lid and the sloping rear window. This meant the shape and style was in line with a coupe whilst had the functionality of a station wagon. The right-angled rear bench seat, 2+2 design and more luggage space were all attributes that improved with this design, especially when compared to a roadster.
The MGB GT was also manufactured with a different windscreen, suspension springs and anti-roll bars to make it easier and less expensive to service.
