The MGB was first introduced in May 1962 as a direct replacement
for the MGA. Performance was brisk with power supplied by a
1798cc four cylinder iron block engine set within a monocoque
lightweight body shell with crumple zones incorporated. October
1965 saw the introduction of the GT and was based on the already
popular roadster. Designed by Pinninfarina. the new GT
sported a hatchback giving useful access to the rear luggage space
and a rear bench seat that enabled the car to be called a 2+2.
Although acceleration was slightly slower than the roadster. top
speed was better by 5mph due to the increased aerodynamic
efficiency. Ken Costello saw the possibility of fitting the
larger aluminium 3528cc Rover P5B engine into the MGB GT having
been sure that the handling and braking could be made to match the
much improved performance; not that it needed significant changes
as the V8 weighed in at around 40 pounds lighter than the four
cylinder iron blocked engine it replaced. Space was not a
problem as the car had originally been designed for fitment of a V4
that was never produced. It was not until two years after the
first Costello car that MG decided to follow suit.

With just three owners from new. this extremely well presented
example is described by the vendor as a nine out of ten car in all
respects. Supplied with a stainless steel manifold and exhaust as
well as Minilite alloy wheels. this accomplished motorcar also
comes with a UK Registration document. a selection of bills for
works undertaken over the years and a series of MoT test
