The MGB was first introduced in May 1962 as a direct replacementfor the MGA.  October 1965 saw the introduction of the GT andwas based on the already popular roadster.  Designed byPinninfarina, the new GT sported a hatchback giving useful accessto the rear luggage space and a rear bench seat that enabled thecar to be called a 2+2. Ken Costello saw the possibility of fittingthe larger aluminium 328cc, Rover PUB engine having been sure thatthe handling and braking could be made to match the much improvedperformance; not that it needed significant changes as the V8weighed in at around 40s lighter than the four cylinder ironblocked engine it replaced.   This genuine factory built MGB GT V8 has been in the currentownership since July 2010 and sadly, due to ill health, cannot beused or maintained in the condition it has been accustomed to.Unable to drive or even polish this little MG, the vendor has madea difficult decision to let it go to a new owner where it may becared for. Interestingly, a previous owner purchased this MG in1992 from the £10,000 prize money of the Radio Times - Top Gearclassic car competition. Today, the MG GT V8 is much revered,especially genuine factory produced V8's. This MG GT V8 is fittedwith the correct Dunlop alloy wheels (including the spare), inertiaseat belts, fire extinguisher, sunroof, period Mountney steeringwheel and chrome sill covers. On inspection of the coachwork, itwill be found that some areas require attention, however, theinterior is smart and boasts black leather seats that are in alovely patinated state. The engine is fitted with an oil cooler anda remote oil filter. This is a UK manufactured and registered MGwith an MoT test certificate valid until 18th October 2017. Withthe MGB V8 prices now rising rapidly, we feel that this is a rareopportunity especially given as this motor car is offered withoutreserve.
