BaT Auction: 1967 MG MGB GT

This post was originally published on this site

This 1967 MGB GT is finished in red over black and powered by an 1,800cc inline-four paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. Modifications include a 2017 repaint in red, a rear shock conversion, and a Weber carburetor. The seller has driven the car approximately 2,000 miles over the last year and has reportedly traced ownership history in Ontario back to the 1970s. Notable maintenance is said to have consisted of new suspension bushings, tune-ups, a valve adjustment, and more. This GT is offered with an extra set of wire wheels, original bumpers, partial records, and clean Ontario registration in the seller’s name.

This is a re-list after the car previously sold on BaT in September and the winning bidder failed to follow through with his purchase commitment. That buyer has been banned from any further participation in BaT Auctions and his buyer fee was not refunded.

The seller reports that the car was repainted by the previous owner last year, and that new bumpers and trim pieces have since been installed. Certain issues with the car since the previous listing have been resolved, including having the windshield trim installed, driveshaft swapped, suspension order of parts fixed, and panel gaps adjusted. The hood exhibits a paint blister and chips per the seller, and the car is in need of some paint correction.

Silver knock-off wire wheels wear chrome spinners and Sumitomo HTR tires. A new clutch master cylinder and brake master cylinder were recently installed and the rear brakes were adjusted. The parking brake is not working correctly according to the seller, nor are the locks in the driver’s door or rear hatch. Also note that a set of Rick Ingram Struts were installed on the rear hatch and engine hood.
