fitted on renewed rear suspension, with uprated front brakes.

MGBGTV8 in Damask sells for £33,600!
One of our Pricewatch volunteers attended the H&H auction
at Brooklands on Saturday 18th May 2019 and says the "very
high value lots were within the restricted auction area - for
example the Aston Martin DB6 and its peers. Surprisingly, the
MGBGTV8 was also within this restricted area, given its somewhat
low estimated price and I can vouch for a continued high level
of interest shown in this MG over the seven hours I was at the
auction. Bidding was strong resulting in the exceptional price
including buyers premium and VAT thereon of £33,600".
