1974 MG MGBThis 1974.5 MGB GT was converted to a 4.2 liter Rover V8 and Rover 5 Speed Transmission. This MGB GT is absolutely stunning in every way and is certainly one of a kind. It has a very quiet V8 rumble and is very comfortable to drive and is very powerful. The 4.2 liter engine was rebuilt from top to bottom. The Rover 5 Speed Transmission shifts smoothly(has had plastic oil pump gear replaced with heavy duty metal version) and also has a Heavy Duty Driveshaft.
The exterior of this 1974.5 MGB GT is painted Pewter Metallic Silver which is the original color found on the European 1980 MGB GT Limited Editions. This custom made Black Leather interior with Silver Metallic piping is truly one of a kind and is not a kit which can only be found at MGBClassics. Front seats are heated with switches conviniently located on the radio console. ALL interior pieces match, including: Shift Boot, Center Arm Console Lid(which has extra padding for extra elbo comfort!) along with the rear Leather Seat. This specially made interior is extremely plush and luxurious. This MGB Drives beautifully and is very comfortable with the soft leather seats. The engine compartment is absolutely stunning and extremely detailed. New King Pins/axles and all bushings are replaced with V8 a-arm bushings installed.The MGB GT V8 style wheels were sourced from England and are a very rare find, with new Tires fitted to them. This MGB GT has been converted back to the chrome bumpers and chrome grill. It has a Tourist Trophy Sport Stainless Steel, Exhaust System mated up to the MGR V8 Headers. It has a Tourist Trophy extra thick Wooden Sport Steering wheel, leather wrapped “MG” shift knob, modern AM/FM/MP3/CD Pioneer Stereo, dashboard has also been restored(no dashboard top covers here, this is a very time consuming job and is usually overlooked because of the complex process of restoring the dashboard). New Clutch Pressure Plate and resurfaced Flywheel has been balanced together. It has an Edelbrock 500 4 brl Electric Choke Carborator, Edelbrock Performer Intake Manifold and Petronix Electronic Distributor. Attention to detail will be found throughout this restored MGB GT V8. This is a fresh restoration, milage is showing 76,112 on the original gauge but is "exempt". A real show winner.
