V8 Roadster Conversion project - from dream to reality!
V8 Roadster Conversions are very popular with V8 enthusiasts and come in a variety of specifications. Geoff King contributed an article with a fascinating tale of how his conversion project was conceived and carried out over a three year period to produce an award winning V8 Roadster with a wonderful specification and performance. Geoff converted his rusty 1972 MGBGT 1800 to a V8 Roadster using a new Heritage bodyshell over a three year period and completed the project in August 2002.
