or near offer - MGBGTV8 in Teal Blue
Advertised as an "MGB GT V8
factory original in, Teal blue with Autumn Leaf interior. New original type seat
covers and foams, new tubular manifolds. MOT until June. Previous owner had car
since 1997 with very little use."
Our PriceWatch contributor Keith Belcher says "to quote the V8 Register
Price Review by Adam Fiander "Cars of the very highest values sold at auction,
through dealers or as private sales, are nearly always those examples that have
originality at the core". This was manufactured in 1974 and registered in
1975 and appears to be a genuine chrome bumper car. The photos show it as original
air filter equipped with rare original Autumn Leaf sill rubber covers and cared
for under the bonnet. The wing seams look good, with tidy bodywork and clean original
V8 wheels. With Teal Blue being a popular conservative colour choice, this car
could warrant detailed investigation. Is it original or restored and what is the
mileage and history?"
