Information card alongside the car (BRG 0252) at the Classic Show at Olympia.


ACA Auction - 25th January 2020
Sold including premium: £16,748
Keith Belcher, one of our Pricewatch volunteers, reports "the MGBGTV8 was sold at the ACA auction. We believe the hammer price was £15,800 and with the 6% commission and VAT the buyer will have paid £16,937.60. The estimate was £12,500 to £16,500. The seller would have received the hammer price less the entry fee and 6% commission plus VAT thereon - £14,572.40
Auction result

Classic Show, Olympia - 21st February 2020
Offered at: £22,250

Ralph Hardwick reports "I went to the Classic show at Olympia today to see the same car being offered by Sussex Classics for £22,250. A healthy 31% increase. The car has a few non-original features such as an LT77 gearbox, a combined master cylinder and booster twin circuit brake system, Minator wheels, C pillar covers and an odd brown leather piped green leather trim. Microblisters can be seen in the paintwork under the bright lights. Maybe a reason for the price uplift - a
new set of black and silver number plates, which it didn't have when listed for auction at ACA!"
