1974 MG B GT 44,525 (Not Warranted) £1,700 + buyers premium


On the Surface: This is a moderate example of a 1974 MG B GT. Finished in Teal Blue over a blue leather interior which sets the car off very nicely. The car also features chrome wire wheels, a webasto sunroof and a very desirable overdrive!

Maintenance: In the history file you will find a stack of invoices as well as a ‘Passport to Service’. Both the invoices and early service history show how the car has been maintained over the years. The car also feature a Gold Seal engine, which has been thoughtfully fitted with an unleaded head allowing it to use modern fuel which allows the next owner to use it with ease.

History: Comprehensive documentation accompanies this MG B GT which underlines some of the work it has received over the years. The vehicle’s history file is substantial, featuring the BMIHT (British Motor Industry Heritage Trust) certificate, a stack of invoices (including a notable restoration invoice from 1992 totaling approximately £5,500), and old MOT certificates dating back to 1991. You’ll also find the MG B handbook, a MG B Haynes manual, and a selection of other MG B-related books. As mentioned prior the ‘Passport to Service’ reveals some early service history with six stamps recorded between 1974 and 1981.

The Model: As with all B GT’s the car is powered by a 1798cc 4 pot engine which in this car is driven through a 4 speed manual transmission. Comfortability and performance at high speeds is helped by the previously mentioned overdrive which is a hunted feature by those looking for an MG B. Being a 1974 model this has got to be one of the last made chrome bumper MG B’s before they switched to rubber in the latter half of 1974.

Sale Insight: This B GT is part of a private collection that is being offered at No Reserve. The Vendor’s decision to part with this MG and the other cars in the sale is due to the loss of storage space. Collectors and enthusiasts: don’t miss the chance to make this MG B a part of your own collection.
