We know this excellent MGB GT very well having sold it to the last two owners in Harrogate. We last sold the car in 2015 to a lawyer and prominent board member of the Alvis Owners Club who has covered 3000 miles in the car. The MG also recently attended a classic car event hosted by ourselves in Scotland and has proven to be an exceptional, reliable example. Over the 500 plus mile trip the car performed faultlessly. Prior to this, we sold the MG to another regular customer in Harrogate in 2012 having been in York for 22 years.
This 1969 registered MGB GT is a remarkably original car and we believe the mileage of 85,000 is likely to be genuine. The MG is an outstanding car to drive and has covered over 10,000 miles since 2009. The car has been in regular use and has proven to be perfectly reliable. The engine feels and sounds strong, oil pressure is very good and the performance is impressive. The four speed gearbox changes up and down smoothly and the overdrive works. Recent mechanical work includes new propshaft universal joints, new stub axle assemblies, regular servicing and greasing. The car requires no major work, is ready to go and drove to us from Harrogate.
VRR 766G presents superbly having been treated to a full re-paint at our Malton Coachworks bodyshop in 2012. The body was excellent with aged paintwork and today the car looks terrific with gleaming paintwork, lovely straight panels and no rust issues. The MG was also treated to new front and rear bumpers, over-riders and rear window surround in 2012. Painted wire wheels are in excellent order and the engine bay is nicely detailed with bright paintwork and clean ancillaries and engine unit. The interior is glorious with lovely aged leather seats with red piping and presents as a very honest, original car in excellent order.
The MG is ideal for regular use, local shows or as recently proven, long distance touring. 1960's MGB GT's are proving incredibly desirable and finding very correct cars like this, that drive, perform and look like VRR 766G are fast becoming increasingly hard to find.
