1978 MGBGT - LOVINGLY RESTORED TO ITS FORMER GLORY

 

Here I have for sale my MGBGT. which had a major restoration in 2012 by myself and my brother.

No corners were cut. as I wanted it doing right as I have very high standards.

Over £6000 was spent restoring this car and bringing it back to its once profound former glory.

Here is a list of work carried out:

Bodywork - The car had 2 new doors fitted before I purchased it - both inner and outer sills (near-side and off-side) - this was done to a very high standard.  Once purchased. I fitted a full rear wing + front and rear valance. The whole car was bare metaled (underside and topside). all under-car seams re-sealed (as can be seen by photos). new front windscreen and rubbers. all new rubbers fitted to doors and windows and new front grill and fan guard.

 

Drive Train - Engine stripped and cleaned. new bearings fitted. brand new (not re-conditioned) unleaded cylinder head from MG-Hive. nbsp;new electronic distributor. leads. cap and coil. new alternator. new water pump. new alloy rocker-coverbox. all water hoses replaced. new throttle and choke cable. new engine mounts. fan belt. carbs stripped and cleaned and then new overall kit fitted. filter housings bare metaled and re-painted and brand new oil cooler and stainless steel hoses.

 

Gearbox - Gearbox cleaned. stripped and then fitted with new seals and engine mountings. prop shaft cleaned and re-sprayed and axel sandblasted. primed and re-sprayed. then fitted with new wheel bearings.

 

Brakes - All new rear cylinders and shoes. new handbrake cable. brand new front caliper pads. discs and rubber hoses. brand new master cylinder and all new piping throughout.

 

Clutch - Brand new master cylinder and slave cylinder and new rubber hose.

 

Suspension - Rear - Brand new springs. shackles. anti-tramp bushes and u-bolts. Every nut and bolt changed on the rear end; fitted with polybushes. Front - New springs. king pin and bushes. brand new steering rack and track rod ends. new shocks all round and every nut and bolt on the front end changed; fitted with polybushes. Brand new wheels and tyres fitted.
