1978 MGB GT. 1 OWNER CAR. 46000 MILES ONLY FROM NEW. DRY STORED FOR 20+ YEARS. FULLY RESTORED. £000'S SPENT.


This fantastic car was first registered 20/10/1978 to its first and only owner in Newcastle. The owner moved to the South in 1983 and drove the car down to Horsham. The car was used lightly for the next 10 years or so and reached only 46,000 miles in that time. The car was then dry stored at home until 2016 when we purchased the car. The car had been Ziebarted and undersealed by the supplying dealer from new and had remained remarkably rust free. The car has gone through an extensive recommissioning by us and is now in fantastic order throughout. The car recently went for its first MOT in over 20 years and passed with no advisories at the first time of asking. The bodywork was in great order when we got it and just required new sills. The old paint was removed and a fresh coat of the correct Pageant Blue was applied. The bodywork was finished off with new side trim, chrome air vent, wiper arms and under bonnet sound deadening felt. The engine was refreshed with a new fuel pump, hi-torq starter motor, water pump, radiator, thermostat, new hoses, rad cap and a full service and tune. The gearbox had a service with new oil as did the diff and the clutch was replaced. A new clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder also fitted. The suspension and brakes had a thorough restoration as well with all new track rods, trunnions, shock absorbers, copper brake lines, brake master cylinder, brake cylinders, pads, shoes, flexi hoses, calipers and brake switch. A new exhaust system has been fitted as well. The fuel tank and sender are also new. The electrics on the car was next. All new switches (inc. indicator and wiper stalks) were replaced. New horns, relays, washer pump and a full halogen headlight upgrade. The interior is remarkably original and there was no need to replace the seats or carpets. it has inertia seat belts and the dash has been re-finished. The car sits on new Minator Minilite style alloy wheels with new 165/80R/14 tyres. All fully balanced and the tracking and alignment sorted. The underside has had a fresh light underseal coating and the sill s have been waxoil injected for protection. The original book pack is present and correct and it even has the dealer tag on the keys. That is a lot of work and new items on a car and we have spent more on the car than we are asking for it. That makes it a great opportunity to buy a 1 owner low mileage car that is sorted and ready to go.
