1975 MGB GT V8
Reg. no. OEL 956P
Chassis no. GD2012526G
Engine no. A860 2264
MG began offering the GT V8 in 1973 utilising the ubiquitous aluminium block 3,528cc Rover V8 engine first fitted to the Rover P5B. Unlike the MGC, the V8 that provided the MGB GT V8\'s increased power and torque did not require significant chassis changes nor sacrifice handling. Both chrome and rubber-bumpered GT versions of the V8-powered MGB were produced by the factory with production ending in 1976. This matching numbers example is in very good all round condition having been restored between 2010 and 2011. The original engine is still fitted, but a reconditioned gearbox was fitted in 1995. More recently the carburettors have been overhauled and a cooling fan fitted; electronic ignition has also been installed. The current owner has owned and enjoyed this car for three and a half years and is offering his car with its original sales brochure, a selection of older V5s, various old MOT certificates and a quantity of bills relating to work carried out circa 2010. There is also a V5c and a current MOT that expires on the 21st July 2018.
