Painted Damask Red, the 1973 model was the last of the chrome bumper cars, with this NZ new example in very good all round condition. New WOF and 12 months registration.
I have a large history file of work done in my 8 years of ownership that includes:
High compression 5 main bearing engine, (50 psi at idle) with new oil cooler, replaced engine mounts, fan belt, breather cap, and radiator cap, recent filter and oil change.
Inlet ports polished, twin SU HIF carburetors with replacement jet assembly kit and springs, air filters, balance tube, and accelerator cable. New petrol filter.
4 speed synchromesh gearbox, with overdrive on 3rd and 4th giving 6 forward gears.
New Petronix Ignitor pointless ignition, (original points come with the car) suppressed HT leads, and coil, replaced sintered bush in distributor, and rebuilt vacuum advance unit.
New windscreen seals fitted front and back, and new rubbers in GT tailgate.
Single 12 volt Battery with kill switch.
Rostyle Wheels shod with Dunlop Daytonas with excellent tread.
Reconditioned kingpin, stub axle, bottom trunnion assembly fitted to right side, hub spacers and shims fitted to both front hubs as they were originally, making the hub stronger, just greased front suspension, and rear universal joint replaced.
New seat belts.
The body has being restored at some stage, now showing signs of rust at the bottom of the front guards. Replacement ¼ front lower wings readily available.
The rest of the body appears excellent. The underside has been fishoilened.
Polypropylene car cover, and sheepskin seat covers. Heater has new insulation.
Original handbook, air flow meter (carb balancer), and the book MGB & MGB GT, Your expert guide to problems and how to fix them by Roger Williams.
Told by previous owner that hardened valve seats had being installed, the polished ports suggest this may be true. I have always run this vehicle on 98 Octane, the recommended octane rating in the handbook being 98 and above.
