ACA auction MGBGTV8 appears again

One of a pair of MGBGTV8s sold at the ACA auction on 27th January 2018 has reappeared up for auction on ebay. It sold for £4,250 including buyer's premium & VAT but reappeared on offer at £6,000 - an uplift of £1,750 or 41% in less than a month!

The car is a Condition 3 MGBGTV8, part of a collection of classic cars discovered in 2017 which found their way to Anglia Car Auctions (ACA). Looking at the very sad photos of the car one can only wonder how on earth anyone with any fondness for classic cars can keep cars in this state - it defies any understanding. But the good news is they will soon be auctioned and then hopefully they will be purchased by enthusiasts who will want to refurbish and cherish them.

This opportunitic reappearance was spotted by fellow V8 Register member Robert Rose.

Factory MGBGTV8 - Teal Blue 0583

Built in August 1973 and originally despatched in September 1973 from the MG Plant to Stewart & Arden in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Registered with the V8 Database in the 1980s by Douglas Cheer in Romford, Essex. There has been no subsequent registration so the car has dropped off the radar, presumably acquired by the "collector in Norfolk". The road tax disc on the windscreen expired in August 2002.
