We have available a 1974 1/2 MGBGT. GHD5UE363373G. This is the final year for the BGT in the USA. Very few of these cars were sold in the USA as growing EPA requirement precluded any further MGB GT’s from the US market. This car was produced 11/74 and still had the dual SU setup and dual downpipe exhaust system from the factory. This particular GT was also fitted with a rare overdrive transmission so you can cruise at a relaxed engine speed of 80 mph in overdrive. The chrome wire wheels have just a few thousand miles on them. It also retains the front sway bar that was deleted on 1975 MGB’s. This car has been lovingly cared for it entire life. It was shown at various club events in the Northwest in the 90’s as attested to by the event badges on the heater box and firewall. It is apparent from the uncracked dash to the excellent and original cloth covered seats it was always garaged. We have serviced this car in our shop for many years and it is in excellent mechanical condition with 140-145lbs of compression in each cylinder and excellent oil pressure. The paint looks like fine porcelain and is a very nicely resprayed just once in the cars life. The body has no signs of damage, all panels fit well and the only signs of rust we could find are a couple of tiny spots smaller than a pencil eraser at the rear dog legs that are typical to the MGB. All the chrome and trim is very nice. This car performs great and will give many years of good service.
