The MG brand has a very significant role in the automobile history world and most English people will agree that the car is a truly love and hate relationship. You never know what to expect out of the Lucas components, however when these MGB GT's are dialed in and standing tall, there isn't much else out there that can compete for the money in style, feel and nostalgia to the driver and the jealous people that you will pass as you cruise to your destination. Produced from 1965 thru 1980, but imports into the USA halted in 1974 and less than 4,000 were believed to be built in total. The classic look was designed by the Italian renowned Pinifarina and was praised for the greenhouse type feel in the cabin that was much more spacious and user friendly compared to the previous coupe designs of MG.

This remarkable car is a museum quality concourse edition setup done in a 3.5yr span and done with an open checkbook. The miles on the car are believed to be accurate as well. Quality and originality was the focus as well as using proper components whenever possible but also doing the best to make the car a very enjoyable driver when behind the wheel. This GT was delivered new out of Fred Deeley Motors in Vancouver in 1971 and was then traded back into the Mercedes dealer in Vancouver where it was sold to Mr. & Mrs. Ken Boyd in 1983. This car was driven and enjoyed for the next 12 years in 1995 he removed the car and stored it for the next 9 years. In December of 2004 one of the most impressive and costly restoration began on this car to restore it to its glory. This car was stripped down to bare metal and completely disassembled from top to bottom to give this project a true fresh start. All new fenders, door skins, floors, rocker panels and sheet metal are new and the bodywork alone took over 21 months to complete. While this body work was being done the engine, suspension, transmission and electrical system was being rebuilt, and modified to get ready to install into the new restoration. The interior is brand new with new seats, dash, carpet, and headliner. The gauges are working properly, heat works nicely and the lights are functioning. The bright work and chrome is exceptional and the extras that come with the car are very impressive. The list is very long and the stack of receipts is very impressive on this restoration. Over $60K in documented receipts and work is in this build and once you see the quality, it is apparent that there were no corners cut. Just about everything on this vehicle is new or restored to a very high standard.

Vehicle comes with brag book of pictures of the restoration, thick file of receipts and service work, original owner's manual, log book from previous customer, and some additional odds and ends for parts. This is not your typical MGB GT and the others on the market will not compete. This is a show winning car that deserves to be flaunted in the collector car world and will only see significant upswing in value and demand as the year's progress. There is nothing wrong with paying up for fantastic car that shows no excuses.
