    MGB GT V8 conversion, LE rubber-bumper shell with age-related 1967 plate. 95814 indicated miles. MOT until April 2019, MOT history since 2013 show no advisories.V5 confirms 1967 registration and historic status, now tax-free and MOT exempt.

    The car is in sound mechanical condition as is the underlying shell, but paint and bodywork is scruffy and in need of sorting.

    Engine – Rover P6 3.5litre with Edelbrock 4 barrel;
    Gearbox –
    SD1 LT77 5-speed.
    Rear Axle
    – Converted MGB, 3.07 differential newly rebuilt.
    Interior -
    generally good with leather front seats (but passenger seat however has 2 damaged leather panels and there is no rear seat fitted); 4-point harness in addition to existing driver’s inertia lap/diagonal.
    Shell – late rubber bumper shell has been competently converted to accommodate the V8 and gearbox with strengthened leaf spring-hangers and sills. Driver/passenger floors replaced. Underneath is clean, solid and free of all but some surface rust.
    Bodywork – fibreglass front wings and bonnet ; Some bubbling starting around the rear wheel arches and front door corners; Front valence rusty but new fibreglass Sebring-style replacement comes with car; Paint poor and needs to be redone along with the rusty bits.
    Wheels - 5 minilite-style 15", Falken ZS914 tyres
    General - mechanical improvements in last few years include: Brakes , Exhaust ; Front suspension; Rear suspension; Cooling; Clutch – new at 94484 miles; Back axle – fully reconditioned at 94516 miles .

    The car is a good driver and is used routinely in the summer including MGoT track days. It is an excellent basis for running renovation with all the mechanicals in place.

    I am selling due to changing circumstances resulting in loss of garage/workshop which make it difficult to maintain and further renovate.

    £9000 but will discuss sensible offers

    Telephone Peter on 01793 747749 (Swindon area) or 07557020249.
