Vehicle Description

1975 MG MGB GT

A simple calculus has a long guided assessment of the MGB: Chrome bumpers equals British classic; rubber bumpers equals British Leyland mediocrity. Yet this prejudice unfairly maligns thousands of cars and shortchanges the improbable 18-year run of the MGB. No one disputes the greatness of the early MGB, which debuted in 1962 as a replacement for the MGA. Handsomely styled, fun to drive, and relatively affordable, it quickly gained a wide following. Participation in racing burnished the car's reputation, and the introduction of the closed-roof MGB GT in 1965 buoyed sales.

For consignment, a now chromed bumper replaces the rubber on this enclosed cabin 1975 MGB GT. This beautiful example has undergone a total rebuild about 10 years ago and shines brightly with its bumpers, trim spears and complete window surrounds. New electricals, (important!), new interior, and new paint are just a few of the tasks performed on this iconic British hard-topper.

Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by the manufacturer, please check your local, state, and federal laws to determine if this vehicle is applicable for use on public highways in your area.*

Straight rust free panels adorn this MG and are covered in dark blue paint. Front fenders are straight and minding their gaps nicely as we move rearward. Before we go though we should highlight the highlighting which abounds on this car. A shiny front bumper, headlight bezels, a dual opening grille surround, side trim spear at the beltline, window surrounds and signal and running light bezels are all shiny brightly. The hatchback heart gently curves downward and sports a large rear greenhouse glass. This melts into the rear quarters which have the iconic vertical tail lighting on either edge. Just below is another rechromed bumper, chromed gas cap and correct badging. 15-inch Minilite replica wheels are covered in 195/60R15's on all 4 corners all from the 7th week of 2012. Cheerio!

Autumn Leaf vinyl, looking a lot like expensive leather, covers the door panels which are now adorned with billet style handles and cranks. The original inset actuators remain. A speaker now belts out some tunes and is also with the door. Nicely padded sills are on top of each door. Inside we see golden warm corduroy inserts on some low back bomber style buckets which have a piping delineation between the corduroy and smooth saddle vinyl bolsters. These chairs cozy up to a center console in black which houses a glovebox/armrest and the shifter lever. On its ascent to the dash we note a few toggles, lights and an aftermarket digital Kenwood head unit which is an AM/FM/CD capable type. The dash is shiny black with no cracks and has a wonderful leather like texture throughout. In front of the driver is a lineup of shiny round bezeled Smiths black faced with white lettering gauges. These reside within the padding in front of the rally steering wheel, along with some extra toggles, lights, a turn knob, and a few buttons. Gold carpeting covers the floors and is very clean. This carpeting covers the rear fold down bench which when down offers up plenty of extra storage space. A light gray headliner is above and is very clean and well padded.

Under the hood and it is an eye opener! A beautifully restored engine bay with a gleaming red painted block 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine with a shiny polished valve covering inserted. It has dual Su carburetors and a 4-speed manual transmission with the Laycock-de-Normanville overdrive. The rear axle is 3.90 geared. There are stainless steel mufflers, new wiring and ignition and all is well under this hood. Cracking look Grommit!

Showing some slight road dirt, otherwise excellently restored and preserved with no rust. Just new lines and solid black straight steel framing and floor pans. Power drum brakes are in back with leaf springs and in front power disc braking with independent coil springs all perfectly painted and looking like new. There is no catalytic converter showing.

All appeared working condition during our run-through. It is comfortable, roomy, and runs swimmingly. All functions are working perfectly. A smooth accelerator, bias free panic stopper and great handler.

Just a great conduit Mg MGB GT version all buttoned up and ready to take on the day, or winding road, or commute, or just a fun drive. We're off.
