Description 1978 MGBGT MANUAL OVERDRIVE 56k MILES HISTORY NEW MOT LEATHER SEATS EXCELLENT

                                                          1978(T reg)  MGB GT, 55k Miles, O/drive ,Leather seats,
Huge History File,  
                                                 Extensively restored
6 yrs ago and recently re-commissioned with new MOT
XUH 510T  is a
super example of a later MGBGT, which was extensively restored in 2008 with
some nice interior upgrades and has only done 5000 miles since then. Recently
has been re-commissioned after storage with a lot of money spent, and has just
passed new MOT.  5 owners frim new (3 in the
same family) and there is a huge history file and the original log book. Engine,
gearbox, clutch (new 500 miles ago) and all mechanical items are excellent,
and the car drives very well indeed now it has been fully sorted (see below).
The car is finished in the original colour (“Vermillion”)
with upgraded dark grey leather seats and new matching carpets. Other interior
upgrades  are the wooden dashboard, wood-
rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel, plus sunroof (which does not leak by the way).
Bodywork and chrome are all excellent and has the original “Rostyle” wheels , with
all good tyres incl. the spare). Underneath and running gear are all rock solid,
and has just passed new MOT last week with no advisories.
Previous Restoration and recent work carried
out
There is a huge file of invoices since the 1990’s,  but in 2008/9 
a major restoration was carried out which included new floor pans and
sills, new clutch, alternator, brake and clutch master cylinders, brake discs,
pads, new exhaust and various other engine 
service items. Total cost was 1700 pounds.  Since then it has only covered 5000 miles and
has been little used in the last few years when SORN’d, although MOT’s have
been done regularly (nb all MOT’s since the early 90’s are in the file)
Recently the car was re-commissioned after storage with
the following work carried out:- New electric fuel pump & fuel line, strip
& fit  SU carb recondition kits , new
overdrive solenoid , new fan belt, alternator 
& battery, new plugs, coil and ignition. New choke cable plus full
engine service and tune. All this cost around 600 pounds. However s a result
the engine now runs very sweet and starts first time. Gearbox, clutch,
overdrive etc are all perfect,, and the car is ready to drive away (nb please
note it is on SORN at the moment so will need to be taxed).
This is a really super example of the popular MGBGT which
has been well sorted and is an ideal first classic which can also be used and
enjoyed on a daily basis.
