MG MGB GT 1.8 with Overdrive 1980

vehicle overview

First registered on 18th September 1980, the last year of production, this amazing, rubber-bumpered MGB GT really represents a "step-back-in-time". Supplied new by Rocar (Rotheram) Limited. Quite remarkably, it's has covered just 5214 miles from new. Purchased new by a lady in Sheffield this fabulous MGB was used up to 1600 miles when she purchased a Motor Caravan, the MG was parked in her garage until she died in 1999. Her son inherited the car and it was placed in his garage in Chepstow where it remained until July 2002. In 2002 the car was MOT'd at 1692 miles and registered in the sons name and the original Ziebart treatment re-applied. Having used the car sparingly during the summer months the car was parked up again in the garage where it remained until February 2014. The car was then sold with just 2064 miles. Some light recommissioning has taken place which comprised 5 new tyres, new brake discs, calipers, pads, wheel cylinders and master cylinder. New flexible brake and fuel hoses. System flushed and replaced with DOT 4 brake fluid. New radiator and heater hoses. Cooling system flushed and filled with 30/70 mix of antifreeze and de-ionised water. All oils, engine, gearbox and differential have been flushed and replenished. New oil, air and fuel filters. All grease nipples greased. The car comes with the original invoice from new, the Ziebart guarantee and the supercover warranty documents and invoices for all the recent work carried out as well as the original number plates and dealer window sticker. The MG has an MOT to July 2016 with no advisories. The condition is fantastic and i hope the pictures show this. The car starts and runs as it should and it can only be described as Drives like New. This is a rare opportunity to acquire what must be one of the lowest mileage MGB GT's available today and would grace any collection. You will not be disappointed with this wonderful classic and viewing is highly recommended. Remarkable in both condition and history, this is a vehicle that any enthusiast would be very proud to own.
