Found in a barn in late 2011 this Harvest Gold MGB GT Coupe has had another lease of life.
Judging from the extensive paperwork the car was declared SORN 01/01/2004.
The MGB has a genuine mileage of 25,753 which is extremely low, the lowest currently on the market. It has a sporty 1798cc engine with Twin SU carbs.
Optional extras include,
· Wooden Interior Trim

It was a Non runner, as the fuel pump was inoperative, and the clutch master cylinder was also seized. This has been rebuilt with new seals, and the fuel pump replaced. Combined with an oil and filter change, new spark plugs, coolant check and air filters cleaned.
The car has had a pre MOT inspection where following problems were flagged up.
Brake pipes rusted, Front brake calliper seized, Fuel pipe perished , Front brake pads crumbling, Tyres Perished.
These issues have been rectified with the following.
Just a selection of pictures have been added to the auction, as we have too many to list. Here is the link to all of the pictures.
Now for the inevitable bad points of the car. As you will see from the pictures.
Interior has seen better days, some small patches of surface rust around the n/s headlight, bootlid, bumpers, n/s door, wings, Car has no door mirrors, No Radio.
Car is advertised elsewhere so I reserve the right to remove the listing at any point.
Please, any questions do not hesitate to ask.
