Description

1979 MGB GT

The vendor has supplied the following information.

I've owned the MG for around 8 years now, it has 32,000miles on the clock which I would find hard to doubt based on its over all condition, its has been rebuilt by us in house over a 5 year period on and off. It's totally bespoke in appearance, its a black car and pre paint had up to 100 hours spent on body prep before a top paint job was done by a very good paint company here in Glasgow. This was a few years ago and the car lived in a bubble for two years before eventually getting assembled. Small areas are just starting to show, tiny scabs here and there but nothing much to worry about. The only metal panels replaced were two heritage door skins on to fantastic original frames, all gapping is spot on, the sills, castle sections, inner wings, wheel tubs all fantastic condition with no rust or rough edges and the under side pretty much all original- there is evidence of the odd wee bit of historic welding on the chassis but nothing much, it has a chrome bumper conversion on it when I bought it. It was purchased in Luton so not a rot box, webasto roof, spoked wheels with great tyres, fawn leather MK1 interior and door card/interior panels made up to match, MK1 rear lights too. Front and rear suspension all new and hardly used since fitting and it has a great stance, brakes all been through front and rear, carbs have an upgrade modern jetting kit fitted and ignition system all done as well. It's now MOT and tax exempt as of Sept last year and sports legal black and silver plates, it really has had a fortune thrown at it on going and somebody will win a prize with it.

**IMPORTANT - THE SWITCH FOR THE FAN IS ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE DASHBOARD**
