After Ken Costelo’s small scale production of V8 Converted MG B’s in 1970, the market would have to wait 3 Years until they could get their hands on a Factory Built Rover V8 Powered MG B GT. Until September of 1973 Production consisted of Chrome Bumpered GT V8’s numbering 1856 units including just 7 LHD with another 735 Rubber Bumper examples following until July 1976 when production ceased.

This 1975 MG B GT V8 was built 24 March to 1 May 1975 and despatched on 8 May 1975 to Henly’s Ltd. Of Manchester. It was imported from the UK after getting Import Approval on 7 December 2010. It was then granted Engineering Approval on 20 January 2011 before being registered in NSW.

It presents as a Very Tidy Example finished in Tahiti Blue and sits nicely on a set of Minator Alloy Wheels with Charcoal Coloured Centres and Polished Rims.. The Contrasting Black Interior is in Great Condition as is the Walnut Veneer Instrument Panel, Console and Door Cappings. For those who enjoy In-Car Entertainment, there is a Blaupunkt 4 Speaker Stereo System. The GT also features a Webasto type Sunroof Allowing you to Enjoy the Sunshine.

A File accompanying the GT contains the Heritage Certificate which details the Original Build Information.
