1970 MGB GT
The fixed roof MGB GT was introduced in October 1965. Production continued until 1980, although export to the US ceased in 1974. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking greenhouse designed by Pininfarina and launched the sporty "hatchback" style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the B GT offered the utility of a station wagon while retaining the style and shape of a coupe. This new configuration was a 2+2 design with a right-angled rear bench seat and far more luggage space than in the roadster. Relatively few components differed, although the MGB GT did receive different suspension springs and anti-roll bars and a different windscreen which was more easily and inexpensively serviceable. In 2019, Road & Track named the GT one of the "16 of Pininfarina's Most Beautiful Designs That Aren't Ferraris."
An exceptional nice original example of a chrome bumper MGB GT sporting factory optional wire wheels. The 1970 MGB had the distinction of being the only year of production that featured a split, two piece rear bumper. This particular MGB spent much of it's life in the great state of Kansas on dry roads. It still has the correct 1800c motor with twin SU side draft carburetors and factory oil cooler. It also retains the original seats which are in excellent shape and un-cracked dashboard unlike most examples of this age. It also has a free flow performance exhaust and a rear shock conversion. We have just serviced this great looking GT in our shop and took it out for a vigorous road test. It has a super strong motor with excellent oil pressure, smooth shifting transmission, and tight steering. If you are looking for an MBGGT to take to your local cars & coffee events, this is the one for you!
