1973 MGB GT V8

This truly outstanding MGB GT V8 is a genuine factory supplied V8 that was first registered in November 1973. Our V8 GT has just completed a full total restoration to top class condition and has covered just running in miles since. The car is absolutely first class in every respect and by far the best V8 GT we have owned in 24 years of business. Not only has the restoration been carried out to a high standard by MG specialists, the previous owner has been meticulous in ensuring the car was finished to the highest of standards. It has also been upgraded to a fantastic specification and is ideal for long distance touring and regular use.

First of all, to ensure there were no rust issues at all, a brand new Heritage bodyshell was purchased and then painted in the original colour of Teal Blue. The underside was also painted body colour and the car then built to the owner's specification. The 3.5 litre V8 was fully re-conditioned and built to stage 2 specification with Econotune SDI heads, RealSteel uprated cam, Holley 4 barrel carb, RV8 manifolds and large bore stainless system. The MG was fitted with a re-conditioned 5 speed gearbox, 123 electronic ignition, high efficiency uprated radiator, hi-torque starter motor, silicone hoses, uprated alternator, uprated heater matrix, brand new wiring loom, braided fuel and brake hoses, Halogen headlights, Silicone plug leads, poly bushed suspension, Aston/Monza quick release fuel cap, Gas struts to boot floor and rear tailgate, Sundym glass all round, original radio upgraded with modern internals and IPod connectivity, modified front suspension and brakes incorporating 4 pot calipers and Bilstein shocks and a modified rear suspension with adjustable shocks and panhard rods.  The MG was treated to a brand new interior with Black leather sports seats, Moto Lita steering wheel and full webasto sunroof.

On completion the V8 was fully tuned and set up and as a result the car drives perfectly. It is truly first class on the road with exceptional performance. There is no doubt the car drives better than when new with desirable modifications that really enhance the way it drives. The paint finish is like glass, the body brand new and the engine show standard. The underneath is also of show standard quality and the car is ready to go. The cost of restoring a V8 to this standard with the various modifications would be in excess of our asking price and it therefore offers an fantastic opportunity to purchase a car that is ready to use and enjoy and is better than when it left the factory.
