This 1970 MGB GT has an instant presence that makes it quite attractive. That's because it's coming off of two decades of care under the same owner. So you have the kind of clean style that comes from investing in a car that you want to hold for the long term... and that's exactly why you want to keep it, too.
The bright paint is the product of a respray followed by years of good care. And having an MGB GT dressed in an Italian-style deep red just seems appropriate. After all, these hatchback coupes had a bit more flair than the roadsters thanks to an update by Pininfarina. But beyond this Italian update is the British style we all love. The sleek lines with just the right amount of chrome give these earlier MGBs like this one a confidently regal appearance. The later cars trade their chrome grille and chrome rear bumpers for black plastic units, so this one appreciates its history with well-maintained brightwork. And the quality body panels mean the sweeping trim line runs like an unbroken line over the whole profile. Rostyle wheels are also such a part of this icon that you'll love to see these looking so fresh on this coupe.
The black interior looks stylish against the red, and the quality fundamentals remind you of the proper care that goes into long-term ownership. Those familiar with the roadster will feel right at home hopping into the GT. The entire inside envelops the driver like a second skin. The space between the three-spoke wheel and the wood grain stick shift is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. The driver gets a full set of Smiths gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer, as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. Plus, the AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette means better driving music. What really makes the GT distinctive is behind these buckets. The hatchback gives you genuine luggage space and versatility that the roadster never could. This gives you the versatility to pack all the toys you want for any weekend getaway.
Lift the hood to see the peppy 1800cc motor. It has the same extra-clean and well-respected style as the rest of the car. It even has the right upgrades. This motor now inhales through a Weber carb properly mounted on a Pierce intake manifold. There's a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to front disc brakes and modern Cooper tires. So this coupe has the kind of investment that just begs for the open road, and that's exactly what an MGB GT is all about. The sound of the motor, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling will make it your favorite classic.
Complete with build receipts, this is a distinctive coupe that's far rarer than its roadster siblings, and it has the kind of history we all want in a true classic. So when something so desirable is also affordable, you need to hurry up on this deal. Call now!
