Private sale - MGBGTV8 in Black - SOLD
Factory MGB GT V8 (1976) exported from the UK to Belgium in 2012. Colour is Black and comes on a set of original, hard to find Dunlop wheels that are specific to this model (including a spare, so 5 in total). The car was converted to Chrome Bumpers by a professional company prior to my ownership, and ever since further enhancements have been made. In the interior, seats were replaced with 'Club' black leather seats, an elm burr dashboard and gear knob were added as was a black leather Motolita steering wheel. Furthermore, the car received a Webasto roof which functions very well and does not leak. Mechanically, the car received a rebuilt engine (3.5l) based on a block of a late Land Rover Discovery, with new pistons, camshaft, electronic ignition, Weber 500 carburettor. This engine was rolling roaded at 186 BHP. The suspension was lowered and the rear leaf springs were replaced with parabolic springs and Gaz shocks, helped by anti-tramp bars, with a significantly beneficial effect on the handling and comfort. Included in the sale is the original engine including carburettors, inlet manifold (very rare!), ignition etc. Additionally, the car comes with a set of 15 inch Minilite wheels in good condition. The bodywork requires significant attention (see picture) despite a respray around 2010, hence a price of 15.000 EUR. 211224

Private sale - rare original Factory MGBGTV8 in Glacier White - withdrawn
Glacier White/black interior Factory V8 first reg March 1976 owned by me since 2000, with only 58,000 Miles and a large history file, including a Heritage certificate, MOTs and many receipts.
I have tried to keep the car as original as possible. Amongst the very few changes are stainless steel manifolds and exhaust system and a stainless steel fuel tank. The extensive records state that a full wax-oil and underseal treatment was carried out early in the car's life. The car has a Webasto sun roof and the original Dunlop cast alloy wheels are fitted with hardly worn Continental ECO contact tyres. Much work done over the years including new clutch and brake servos. Most recently, a new clutch and new engine mounts were fitted and the starter motor refurbished. Front and rear springs have also been replaced. A rolling road tune up (about 1,000 miles ago) confirms that the engine is still producing the same bhp and torque as when new! As a historic vehicle it is MOT exempt but I have continued having an annual MOT inspection. The current certificate is until August and has no advisories. My V8 wears its 45 years and 58,000 miles extremely well, prompting many compliments. The car is garaged and driven only in dry weather. Additional info and photographs on request. £21,950 210511 & 210626 Location Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

MGBGTV8 Sebring Replica - YVJ 235K was first registered 22/06/1972 now as Historic. MOT to February 2022. Comprehensive build details of conversion to V8-engined Sebring replica, with photographic record. Impressive spec. Real Steel upgrades to engine, together with Holley 4-barrel carburettor and Offenhauser 360 manifold, should give approx 250 bhp according to their spec sheets. From MOT history, the car appears to have covered 600 miles since 2006! Over £7,500 spent in 2019 by previous owner. I bought the car last summer (2020) as a project - it looked a bit down-at-heel and unloved. Since then, we have fitted new parabolic rear springs and telescopic shock absorbers, and new front springs as those fitted were too short. Four new Nankang 225/60/15 tyres have been fitted for good all-round use (dry/wet, road/track). Two sets of new 4-point competition harnesses have been fitted, using a new mounting bar supplied by Safety Devices for optimum over-shoulder angle. A new hand-held fire extinguisher has also been fitted in front of the passenger seat. The car is now ready for new adventures, on the road, on track days, sprints or hillclimbs or historic rallying, as the new owner prefers. £18,995 210220 - SOLD

1973 MGBGTV8 conversion - SOLD in 18 days
A high-quality conversion carried out in the late 1990s by Dave Lockett whose aim was to create 'the V8 Abingdon should have built'. Based on a 1973 shell, the car has an SD1 engine with K&N filters, 'block hugger' extractor manifolds, a 2¼ inch diameter exhaust and a Maniflow silencer, providing 160 bhp at the flywheel. The engine is mated to an LT77 5-speed gearbox and an MGC back axle. It has shorter, stiffer front springs and standard GT rear springs with anti-tramp bars so the car sits about 1½ inches lower than a standard V8. It has a 13/16th anti roll bar, negative camber lower wishbone arms and poly bushes throughout. Wheels are 15-inch Minilite replicas and tyres are Dunlop Sport Blu Response 185/65, about four years old. The bodywork is rock-solid and standard, apart from the bonnet louvres. The car was resprayed in Old English White about seven years ago and the finish remains good. Interior trim in navy blue is also good. I have owned the car for 11 years and 30,000 miles - it is reliable and a joy to drive. Free road tax and a year's MoT. Price £14,000. 190502

Long term V8 Register member seeks to purchase from a fellow enthusiast a Factory V8, Condition 1, chrome bumper car which is close to the original specification but with a sunroof. You may be assured that your car will go to a good home. As a long term MGV8 enthusiast I wish to purchase from an owner who, like me, cares about the future of the car as much as its past. I am happy to accept a car subtly or tastefully modified including leather upholstery. Colour must be unchanged from the Factory original and preferably Glacier White, Black Tulip or Teal Blue, but any colour would be fine for the right car. In the first instance please feel free to call for a chat together. Alternatively email or me to give the expectation of price together with a general exchange of other information. Please, no dealers. I am in Norfolk but will happily travel anywhere within the UK to view a car. A comprehensive history file that includes details of body and mechanical repairs or upgrades would be invaluable as would any other documentation regarding the history. Also any information on the availability, or likely availability, of a good MGBGTV8 would be very much appreciated. Discretion assured. Contact: Angus Munro. 170112

Tundra 1118 (1974) with only 19,642 miles and owned by a former V8 Register member, is being sold at Classic Car Auctions on Saturday 24th September at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre CV311XN . Details say it "has been maintained regardless of cost, it has never been restored but simply regularly maintained and cared for on an ongoing basis. Sensible upgrades include a twin 12v battery conversion and a stainless steel exhaust system. The MOT test was recently passed with no advisories". From the auction listing it appears to be Condition 2 Plus with an auction estimate of £12,000 to £15,000.

(Oct 74 N) with tan interior, MOT to April 2016, zero VED with "Historic" road tax exemption. The Sports Car Classics magazine featured this car in 2003/2004 in a special "V8 Power" article, including detailed descriptions of the very comprehensive "virtually as new" restoration works carried out on this "Condition 1+" car. The present owner bought this car immediately after reading this article. To read a copy of this "V8 Power" article. There have been two significant restoration phases: the first around 1983/4 to rebuild the car into a new BMC factory made (1980) body shell (these last factory made shells had far superior anti-corrosion treatment than earlier ones) and the second restoration took place in 1997-2003 and was fully comprehensive as described in the above article, with about everything being inspected and refurbished/replaced as required. It has covered 10,273 miles since this restoration. Extensive records (invoices) for these restoration works are available. In summary the significant/major works include: replaced body shell (CB) and a subsequent body shell strip/refinish and repaint; engine stripped down, inspected and refurbished as necessary by a Rover V8 engine specialist company; brakes and suspension rebuilt; exhaust system reverted to cast iron manifolds; electrical systems and fully reworked interior with leather seats and new carpet etc.; and much more. The major supplier for genuine MG parts was V8 Conversions of Farnborough, Kent who have continued to supply parts to the present owner, these included: engine immobiliser/keyless entry; electric window lifts, Lumenition electronic ignition; replacement alternator and starter. Also new Firestone tyres fitted, as may have been on the car when new. Price: £15,500 for a car ready to go anywhere at any time. Definitely a Condition 1+ car. 150921

Urgently Wanted - Exceptional original Factory MGBGTV8 - car found & purchased
I am looking for a genuine Condition 1 or Condition 2 low mileage GT V8 which is mostly the original specification or slightly improved. The bodywork, interior and mechanicals should be excellent and I would prefer a late chrome bumper model with a sunroof. I am now retired and need a car that my wife will be comfortable in for weekends away. I have recently joined the MG Car Club and am a genuine MG enthusiast who wants to buy a much cherished car from another member who has decided to relinquish his pride and joy. I promise to give the car a very good home! Please email your photos, specification and what you would like for the car.

Wanted - Exceptional original Factory MGBGTV8 - Car now found in New Zealand
I am the proud owner of two Concours standard Spridgets, a 1971 Austin Sprite and a 1973 MG Midget, both of which I treasure. However I would like to purchase an MGBGTV8 at which point my wife informs me that one of the Spridgets will have to go! I am looking for a genuine Condition 1 very low mileage V8 which is close to original specification and in an unmolested state. The bodywork and mechanicals should be commensurate with a Condition 1 rated car. I appreciate that whilst such a car would initially be more expensive to purchase, long term ownership costs should be considerably lower as I expect to have an annual mileage of only circa 3,000 miles. I know I have set very stringent search criteria but as a genuine MG enthusiast and fellow MG Car Club member (not a Trader) understandably I only want the best! A chrome bumper car would be preferred but I would consider a truly exceptional car with rubber bumpers. Although some colours would have an attraction I do not wish to limit my search by this criteria at this stage. If possible I would like to purchase from a fellow enthusiast. In the first instance please email photos, specification and expectation of price.

Private sale - 1973 MGB V8 Roadster in white - SOLD
The car was built by myself "a trained engineer" in 1990. Therefore I can advise the buyer on everything to do with the car. I used the car regularly in the early years including many trips abroad and it proved to be very reliable. The original car was a chrome bumper and it has a chrome bumper cross member, not from a rubber bumper model which is common practice. The engine sits lower than any you will find and sits well into the bulkhead giving better balance than any others I have driven. This car is not for the purist as it is extensively modified. Bespoke front suspension with coil over shocks and fully adjustable. Disc brakes all round, vented fronts, Ford rear axle 3.08 ratio with limited slip diff, wire wheels 7" x 15 fronts and 8" x 15 rears. Later Smiths instrument gauges. Full weather gear. DVLA. were contacted when I finished the car and it is registered with the correct registration document details so no issues with insurance etc and the age qualifies it for road tax exemption. It has a current MOT. It comes with a vast amount of spares including two spare SD1 engines (one has fuel injection), 5 speed gearbox, brand new super charger, the original set of 14" wire wheels with very good tyres and many other bits and pieces. I'm 60 now and it all has to go. Someone will have some fun with this car as it's very quick. It has always been garaged since 1990. £15,500. 150622

Wanted – MGBGTV8 Chrome bumper factory car - car found and purchased in Northern Ireland
I am an MG Car Club member and a long-time MGB GT fan having owned a wire wheel BGT in British Racing Green in the 1970s. Family circumstances forced the sale of the car and I have hankered after another ever since. However, I would now like a little more power than the 1800 engine and a V8 seems the obvious choice. I am looking for a car in good condition, preferably category 1, in Damask Red, Teal Blue or Glacier White with an extensive service history and without a sun roof. Limited garage space combined with my age and lessening agility makes a car in good condition a necessity. The days of engine removal and bodywork repair are now behind me. I would prefer to buy from a private seller rather than from a dealer or by auction. If you are a MG enthusiast who would like to sell your cherished car to a like-minded enthusiast, please give me a ring or email. I live in the Midlands but distance would be no object for the right car. 150311

Teal Blue 0547
. For sale of my beloved MGBGTV8 which I have had the pleasure of owning and maintaining for two and half years. This is a very early ‘matching numbers’ tax exempt car built in August 1973 and despatched to Kennings in Ealing, London on 12th Sept 1973 and registered to its first owner on 12th October 1973. Chassis GD2D1/547-G, Engine 4860-0400 with body in Teal Blue with Autumn Leaf interior and a Tudor Webasto sunroof. A true classic British thoroughbred with looks and 120+ MPH performance to match; the car remains in fine fettle and runs very well with no creaks or groans and returns good MPG with use of the smooth-engaging overdrive. MOT expires April 2015. Bodywork, paint finish, interior, chrome and appendages all in very good condition. The only non-standard extras are the fitment of electric windows which work fine and Luminition electronic ignition, which is also very good. When the revs start to rise and the pace quickens, a stainless exhaust gives the car a very pleasant howl, while recent fitment of a new servo ensures excellent breaking performance, as and when you need it. Four new Continental Eco-Contact tyres as recommended by the Register provide superb grip and added ride comfort. Has had two new 6v batteries fitted only recently. A full history file of bills and receipts, plus photos of the restoration confirms the history and provenance. Also supplied with a Heritage Certificate. A sound future investment as the market is now waking up to recognising these cars for their rarity and classic British appeal. Price £13,950 141106

It has the more modern 3.9 RV8 engine (3895cc) pushing out 200bhp at the flywheel with a stainless steel exhaust and it performs as expected.

Beware of scam from an overseas V8 buyer!
Rick Morton (Woodcote Green 1300) has reported a scam which members who are selling a V8 need to note. Rick says "I just thought I would update you on my experience with trying to sell my RV8 recently before I withdrew it from sale. Both Jerry Winfield (Woodcote Green 1684) and I heard from the same person but I also had several other emails with roughly the same approach." How does the scam work? "This person, who is overseas, agrees to buy your car and will send you a cheque for more than the asking price to cover shipping costs etc. He then asks if you could bank the cheque and send the balance to his shipping agent via a money transfer. The cheque bounces but only after you have sent the cash to the shipping agent. This scam relies on your ignorance of how the cheque clearing system works. Problems arise because banks update their computers on day three of the clearing cycle. So if you check with them at that time, you may very well be told that the funds are available. It will only be on day four that the bank realises that there is a problem, and on day five that they tell you. Weekends and Bank Holidays all add to the delay. In my case the scam merchant was going to send me a cheque for £3,400 more than I was asking for the car. I was to subtract the cost of the car and send the remainder to his "shipping agent"." So members advertising here need to be alert to this scam and any approach from the scam merchant!
