1969 MG MGB GTThis 1969 MGB GT is a proper European classic driver's machine that has been given some nice upgrades to really enhance the sporty look and feel of this coupe.
The GT was all about adding both style and substance. It's a coupe that has better aerodynamics than its drop-top sibling. The shape was created by Pininfarina, and the glossy red paint loves to show off the well-done curves. This is an earlier MGB, and so that means a chrome rear bumper and grille. The front bumper was deleted for a sleek style that also saves some weight up front for better distribution. But what really sets it apart are the wheels. Those are proper center-lock wire wheels we love to see on classic sports cars, and so these shine exceptionally bright to really get people's attention.
GT stands for Grand Touring, and that's what this interior was made to do. After all, you have nicely bolstered buckets seats for comfort, extra interior space and glass for a roomy feeling, and the rear seats fold down so that there's plenty of room for luggage. There are even nice touches, like how the front seatbelts coordinate with the exterior red. The wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, the gearstick is where you right hand wants to rest, and the full Smits gauges are crisp and clear. This feels like a proper European classic built for driving.
The engine bay has the look of a solid investment. You get MG's hardy 1800cc motor, and this one shows plenty of freshness and fortification. This includes the right new components, like the distributor, wires, hoses, and gaskets. Cooling is improved with an added oil cooler and upgraded radiator. The motor has an upgraded Weber carb, Pierce intake, and polished header. The total package fires up eagerly and runs strong like a well-done rebuild. The four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the motor. Plus, the nimble steering and front disc brakes deliver that ideal classic European sports car driving experience.
The MGB GTs already have a unique look. And this example has been upgraded to make it even more distinct and a stronger driver. So that makes for an irresistible package you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
