|This stunning MGB GT was purchased by the last owner in 1989 and he commissioned a restoration around 2004 by Rees Brothers in Aldershot, who duly completed the full ‘last nut and bolt’ rebuild in 2006 at a cost of £47,000-plus (copy invoices available). A Heritage ‘shell was not considered good enough quality, so the original body was rebuilt by hand using as many of the original panels as possible (ie: those that were perfect). The body was completely rust proofed as it was being rebuilt, and then finished to a very high standard in MG Damask Red which is still looking perfect today.
A completely reconditioned engine and gearbox were installed while the rear axle was considered good enough to be reused, as was the steering rack. New carburettors and filters were fitted, and all hydraulics replaced. The interior was left untouched, as it was leather trimmed and in good condition. The dashboard and headlining were replaced, and the car completely rewired, etc.
The MG has covered around 1,000 dry-weather-only miles since the rebuild’s completion in 2006. It remains in exactly the same condition as when handed over by Rees Brothers, having been kept in an air-conditioned garage. A desirable manual/overdrive model there is a great history file including dating certificate, current MoT, a V5 registration document, and the aforementioned restoration invoices.
These early GTs are becoming rare now and this is amongst the best available with only 5 owners.
