With its more distinct styling, nimble handling, and extra practicality, this 1973 MGB GT is one of those great classics you never need much convincing to enjoy. And when a classic with an affordable price also comes with a recently rebuilt engine, then you know you\'ve found a great driver\'s coupe.
These hatchback coupes had a bit more flair than the roadsters thanks to styling by Pininfarina. But beyond this Italian update is the British style we all love. The sleek lines with just the right amount of chrome give these earlier MGBs like this one a confidently regal appearance. The later cars traded in their chrome grille and chrome rear bumpers for black plastic units, so this one appreciates its history with well-maintained brightwork. Even the sweeping trim line continues to run over the whole profile. You may find some areas to improve or choose to update the paint, but the value price is there to leave room in your budget to give it a personal touch. But that\'s for show car people. If you\'re a driver, you\'ll appreciate a strong classic that\'s clean and complete everywhere from the fit of the panels to the iconic Rostyle wheels.
Those familiar with the roadster will feel right at home hopping into the GT. The entire inside envelops the driver like a second skin. The space between the three-spoke wheel and the wood grain stick shift is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. The driver gets a full set of Smiths gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer, as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. What really makes the GT distinctive are behind the high-back bucket seats. The hatchback has genuine luggage space and versatility that the roadster never could. This gives you the flexibility to pack all the toys you want for any weekend getaway.
Lift the hood to see the peppy 1800cc motor. This was rebuilt less than 1k miles ago. It was a comprehensive investment that included the block machined and honed. Plus, they added new plugs, wires, distributor, coil, gaskets, and a Pierce intake. So it\'s a strong powerhouse that fires up with an eagerness that wants to hit the streets. There\'s a surefooted feeling thanks to front disc brakes and Goodyear tires. So this coupe has the kind of investment that just begs for the open road, and that\'s exactly what an MGB GT is all about. The sound of the motor, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling will make it your favorite classic.
Complete with maintenance records, this is a distinctive coupe that\'s far rarer than its roadster siblings. So when something so desirable is also affordable, you need to hurry up on this deal. Call now!
