1969 MGBGT MK2 MANUAL + O/DRIVE - 18,730 MILES SHOWING
This amazing car has quite a story to tell, built in the UK with manual transmission and the optional overdrive
A rare example, this GT was built in September 1969 for the local UK market, but a month later was earmarked for export.
This lovely example with excellent body and mechanicals now enjoys the added benefit of electronic ignition.
Not only does the car come with a substantial history file but also a Heritage certificate confirming matching numbers as originally supplied.
A unique feature is the original slightly wider, solid disc wheels, which were standard issue only for the domestic UK GT models. - It is quite rare to see an early MGB with the original standard wheels and hub caps. Most people think all MGBs came with wire wheels, however the truth is wire wheels were an optional extra at an extra cost, most buyers opting for the wires and only a rare few choosing the standard road wheels.
The other unique feature is the metal sliding sunroof - a rare professional installation. – Typically the sunroofs installed on the MGBGT’s are Webasto type in fabric which fold back, this full metal roof fits like a glove and does not leak.
An MGBGT is a great classic car offering comfort, useful carrying capacity, great looks designed by Pininfarina, a superb exhaust note and lively performance in the manual version with overdrive.
Powered by a 1.8 Litre 4 cylinder engine, it produced 70.8Kw(95bhp) and 150Nm of power and torque delivered to the rear wheels via a 4 speed manual gearbox and overdrive (effectively a 6 ratio gearbox). Performance claimed at the time of release was 0-100kph in 11.9 secs and a top speed near 170kph.
A perfect car for classic car events, tours and shows or just a pleasant drive through the hills, rain or shine.
