The Project

This 1981 MGB GT came in for an interior rebuild and some engine works to get it back on the road and to be enjoyed by it’s owner once again.

3rd July 2024: Seats and door cards refitted, boot carpets and interior detailing. Carburettors and gear box are also being fitted and tested.

> More updates to follow.

The MGB GT in rubber-bumpered form is still your cheapest way into ‘B ownership. Given how aghast aficionados were at its Federalised bumpers at the time of its launch, we can see how that’s happened. But it’s funny how the passage of time has really softened those controversial looks – a testament to the design department at Longbridge, which oversaw the installation of those bumpers on the 1975 cars.

In reality, the MGB’s modifications were superbly executed, and despite being huge, the bumpers flow well with the existing car’s styling. We’re not kidding – look at a Seveties Fiat X1/9, BMW 2002 or Lancia Montecarlo to see how bad Federal bumpers can look.

The relative lack of wide appeal for these later models can work in your favour: prices are low compared with older chrome-bumpered cars and you get pretty much the same package.
