SUMMARY

A superb, 'chrome bumper' factory V8 in a Heritage shell with some performance upgrades. An exceptional example.

DESCRIPTION

This chrome-bumper factory MG B GT V8 finished in Glacier White was purchased by its present owner in 2007 from renowned classic car dealers, Murray Scott Nelson. It was accompanied by an impressive history file and was mechanically good but in need of some serious attention to the bodywork. The decision was taken to commence a full restoration and consequently a new Heritage Shell was purchased and subtlety modified with ‘RV8’ inner wings to allow the fitment of free flow manifolds, a visually impressive addition looking factory- correct. To complement the new shell, the engine was fully rebuilt and correctly detailed with new cylinder heads and a 4.6 cam, as was the gearbox, overdrive and final drive. With fully refurbished wheels and new tyres, this particular GT V8 is now a very impressive machine, accompanied by the glorious soundtrack emanating from the free-flow exhaust. A true drivers' GT that will please the most pedantic of MG owners.
