I'm selling my much loved MGB GT. It's served me well, but I've got to the stage where I'm hardly using it and it deserves a new home.
It costs £0 in road tax and about £130 a year in insurance; Passers-by smile at you and kids go 'look daddy!' - all of which makes this a great car to own.
There are photos of the car over on Flickr.
Extensive history dating back to purchase date and provenance. 53k miles from refurb. It’s a very practical and cost effective classic British car.
I have the full history of the car and much of the documentation dating back to 1970. Since I’ve owned it, it’s been serviced properly and expertly by classic car specialists G Grace & Son in Tring. I have fitted a wooden steering wheel, an electric fan (more fuel efficient and keeps it cool when not moving in traffic), an electronic distributor (runs smoother and better at starting in the winter) and I have replaced the 2x 6v batteries with a modern 12v battery. It has been Wax-Oiled and has plastic wheel arch protectors.
This car was owned by Geraldine, the daughter 1958 Formula One team owner Tony Vandervell. Tony owned Vanwall which was Stirling Moss and Tony Brooks’s team. This little MG was a 21st birthday present for her and fitting of her dad’s wealth it had every significant extra fitted (overdrive, webasto sunroof, wire wheels, laminated windscreen)
