Description for MG BGT 1971

A great-looking 1971 MGB GT is already an intriguing classic. But when you realize that this exceptionally affordable coupe is fresh off an engine rebuild, right down to new carbs and an overdrive four-speed, then you know this is exactly the GT you've been waiting for.An MGB GT in its correct shade of standout orange just seems appropriate. After all, these hatchback coupes had a bit more flair than the roadsters thanks to the Pininfarina restyle. But beyond this Italian update is the British style we all love. The sleek lines with just the right amount of chrome give a MkII MGB like this one a confidently regal appearance. The later cars trade in their chrome grille and chrome rear bumpers for black plastic units, so the style here has the upper hand by far. This distinction means the MkIIs will often cost you a bit more, but they also hold this extra value. But beyond just history, you look at the how well the panels line up, how the sweeping trim line runs unbroken over the whole profile, and how the iconic alloys are bright and distinctive... soon you realize just how well cared for this coupe really has been.Those familiar with the roadster will feel right at home hopping into the GT. This is not the kind of cushy interior that comes from a turnpike cruiser, but if you've read this far, you already knew that. Instead, 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. The black vinyl bucket seats are pristine thanks to more investment in this car's care. And what really makes the GT distinctive is behind these buckets. Not only is there a rear seat for a true 2+2 experience, but also the hatchback gives you genuine luggage space and versatility that the roadster never could. So while the interior is too nice for us to suggest you make Home Deport runs, we do know you're thinking about packing a bit more into your weekend getaways.Under the hood is the best part of this GT by far. The original 1800cc motor was rebuilt around 1,200 miles ago, and it presents like it's fresh off the boat from England. Everything is in order on this one right down to the new twin carbs from Moss Motors and the rebuilt four-speed transmission w/overdrive. There is a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to front disc brakes and Michelin tires. This coupe has the kind of investment that just begs for the open road, and that's exactly what an MGB is all about. The sound of the powerplant, the slickness of the gearbox, and unmatched tight handling will make it your favorite classic. There's so much more time and money invested in this roadster than we don't have the space to mention. But, give us a call and we'll go through all the details, including the restoration receipts and owner's manual. It's evident that this is truly an MGB GT worth much more than its affordable price.
