Ken Costello 1927-2015
Malcolm Bailey has made a V8 Register Facebook posting reporting "Ken Costello, the man whose MGB V8 conversions persuaded BL management to support the MG Plant's project to build the MGBGTV8, has died aged 88. Founder of engineering firm MG Costello, Ken was a hero in MG circles as well as a racer, flyer and automotive designer. He even drove a Brabham BT19 in the film Grand Prix. His dedication to refining and re-engineering MGBs and Cs ensured Costello MGs are recognised classics today, and that his name resonates as one of the most valued in the British motor industry."
