1972 MGB V8

Price: £29,995 Mileage: 18,742

This exceptional car began life as a home market MGB Roadster but has subsequently been transformed into a specialist prepared road rally contender. The comprehensive history file details the significant investment that has been made over the years and records the car’s class win in the 2003 Classic Safari Challenge Rally.

Beginning with a new Heritage bodyshell in 1999, the car’s specification has evolved to incorporate full RV8 running gear and interior, rally preparation by MG specialists Brown & Gammons, a 5 speed RV8 gearbox, limited slip differential, Minilite style alloys and rally suspension. Most recently the car has been fitted with a superb JE Developments 4.0 litre injected engine with Omega forged pistons, new tuftrided crank and big valve ported head. This superb sounding engine is freshly run in and produces 267 bhp and a mighty 256 lb/ft of torque.

Cosmetically the MG is in excellent condition, with stunning metallic green paintwork, RV8 leather interior and mahogany dashboard and a mohair hood. A full set of modern electronic navigation aids is fitted in the car, including a Brantz Tripmeter, Rally Timer and Wheel Sensor. An original glove-box cover is included should these items be removed. Also available is a hard top ready for refurbishment and conversion to works specification. Please note that the distinctive registration is being retained by the car's owner.

Superb to drive and equally at home as a road or long distance road rally car. Offered for sale at a fraction of its development costs.
