Manufactured by MG from 1962 through 1980, the MGB was a tremendously successful model for the manufacturer. The MGB offered many different variants during its time of production including a coupe, convertible and three-door 2+2. In 1965, MG debuted the MGB GT model, a 3-door “hatchback” car with design by Pininfarina. The Pininfarina design was groundbreaking. Combining a sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the car had the shape and style of a coupe but provided the utility of a station wagon. in 2019, Road & Track named the MGB GT one of “16 of Pininfarina’s most beautiful designs that aren’t Ferraris”. The GT had a 2+2 design with desirable luggage space behind the second row. The car had different suspension springs and anti-roll bars than it’s standard MGB counterparts and also had a redesigned windshield.
This 1973 MGB GT was the recipient of a complete frame-off restoration. The restoration spared no expense and included new stainless steel exhaust, new leather seating, Wilton Wool carpeting, Alcantara headliner, electronic ignition, halogen headlamps, new brake and fuel lines, new gas tank, all new chrome around the exterior, a new clutch and more. Walking around the exterior of this car, the Burgundy paint is striking against the gleaming chrome. Open the door and it becomes immediately apparent that a significant investment was made on the leather seating and each item throughout the interior. The MGB GT takes an already iconic British car and adds panache that can only be found through Pininfarina design. There are not many GTs on the market today, especially those of collectible caliber.
