The MGB GT in rubber-bumpered form is still your cheapest way into 'B ownership.
Given how aghast aficionados were at its Federalised bumpers at the time of its launch, we can see how that's happened. But it's funny how the passage of time has really softened those controversial looks - a testament to the design department at Longbridge, which oversaw the installation of those bumpers on the 1975 cars.
In reality, the MGB's modifications were superbly executed, and despite being huge, the bumpers flow well with the existing car's styling. We're not kidding - look at a Seveties Fiat X1/9, BMW 2002 or Lancia Montecarlo to see how bad Federal bumpers can look.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- Chassis: GHD5456992G
- NZ New - last owner 19 years - only 4 long term owners before that.
- Very original car
- Body and paint in good order
- Upholstery, carpets, seats, hood lining, door cards, dashboard - all in very good original order.
- Good mechanically. Good engine. Car drives very well
Prices are low compared with older chrome-bumpered cars and you get pretty much the same package. What's not to like?
The MGB is Britain's most popular classic car with good reason: it's widely available; has great parts and specialist support; and as long as you're not too demanding an owner, they are really good fun to drive. And let's be honest, that B-series engine sounds good when rasping through the exhaust system.
The appeal of the later cars is not just their lower prices - although that's a big part of it - but you also have the added advantage of BL's infamously garish colour palette inside.
Will be sold WOF'd and registered if sold in New Zealand.
TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
