1975 MGB GT

 

 

This 1975 MGB GT presents in a unique colour combination and has benefitted from recent respray, interior recondition, and engine overhaul. Under the bonnet is a naturally-aspirated 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine which sends its 71kW (95hp) to the rear wheels. The transmission in this car is a four-speed manual. The odometer currently shows 33,002km.

 

 

Recognisable as one of the all-time great sports cars, the MGB was sold to a large number of worldwide markets over an 18-year production run. The car came in a few shapes and sizes but one of the most well-rounded versions was the MGB GT, which paired a hatchback’s rear door practicality with a two-door roadster’s style. This effectively launched the sporty hatchback – popular in today’s performance car market. The Pininfarina design was first introduced in 1965, though it underwent several changes over the years right up until it went out of production in 1980. The GT’s styling has been referred to as one of Pininfarina’s most beautiful designs that wasn’t a Ferrari. Today, the MGB GT is revered for its mechanical simplicity, parts availability, and stylish design. Later cars are desirable for their overdrive facility.

 

 

Painted in Harvest Gold over a tan-upholstered interior, this GT’s specification is seldom seen in MG circles. The exterior has had its rubber bumpers removed for a cleaner look, and the inside is highlighted by houndstooth inserts and a black dashboard array. The car sports a higher ride height for ease of access and it also features a sunroof. It currently rides on a set of 16-inch Superlite alloy wheels which come wrapped in Achilles tyres.

 

 

This MGB GT was originally built in England as a rubber-bumper car with a sunroof, power-assisted brakes, and the much-loved overdrive function. It underwent a thorough recondition back in 2014 which included a fresh repaint, new interior, and a transplanted 1800 engine with a two-barrel Weber carburettor. The car then moved onto an owner in rural NSW who drove it sparingly, then to its current owner in 2021. It has just been serviced with new oil in the engine, gearbox, all joints greased, and should pass RWC easily.

 

 

The exterior presentation remains in good order throughout, with the yellow paintwork shining brightly in the sun and chrome detailing reflecting light nicely. Some light panel indentation can be seen on the left-hand side, while portions of paint bubbling can be seen. Signs of treated rust is noticeable under the paint, though no breakouts are obvious. The underbody has been rust protected. All four wheels appear in good condition without kerb rash and the tyres retain a good tread depth.

 

 

Inside the cabin this MGB has been kept well and displays minimal wear and tear. The upholstery is in good condition without major creasing or fraying, while the carpets and door cards are clean. Some scuffing and scratching is seen under the door and around the boot, though this is considered commensurate with the car’s use. All gauge functionality appears in working order.

 

 

This car will come with a series of recent service receipts.
