With its unique styling, nimble handling, and extra practicality, this 1972 MGB GT is one of those great classics you never need much convincing to enjoy... especially at this affordable price.
An MGB GT dressed in an Italian-style deep red just seems appropriate. After all, these hatchback coupes had a bit more flair than the roadsters, thanks to an update by Pininfarina. But beyond this Italian update is the British style we all love. The sleek lines with just the right amount of chrome give these earlier MGBs like this one a confidently regal appearance. The later cars trade in their chrome grille and chrome rear bumpers for black plastic units, so this one appreciates its history with well-maintained brightwork. The paint has an excellent luster, and the clean glass and the full-length trim showcase well-fitting body panels. So there's a nice look of a quality driver. You get the nice touches of a classic British driver, like stone guards on the headlights and mini lite-style wheels.
The black interior has a clean and complete style that's quite inviting. Even the dash light still greets you when the door opens. Those familiar with the roadster will feel at home hopping into the GT. The entire inside envelops the driver like a second skin. The space between the three-spoke wheel and the shifter is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. And they are both finished in wood for that ideal vintage feel. The driver gets a complete set of Smiths gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer, as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. Plus, there have been some nice upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input. And we like the custom upholstery has red piping to coordinate with the exterior. What makes the GT distinctive is behind these buckets. The rear seats fold flat, and the hatchback gives you genuine luggage space and versatility that the roadster never could.
Lift the hood to see the peppy 1800cc motor. It has the clean look of maintenance, and it has received the right upgrades along the way, like a Weber carburetor and a cannon intake. There's a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to front disc brakes and new Goodyear tires. So this coupe has the kind of style that just begs for the open road, and that's precisely what an MGB GT is all about. The sound of the motor, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling will make it your favorite classic.
This is a distinctive coupe far rarer than its roadster siblings, and it even has the bold red to stand out further. So when something so desirable is also affordable, you need to hurry up on this deal. Call now!
