Technical data for 1974 MG MGB GT
|Engine:||1.8 Liter I4|
A great-looking 1974 MGB GT is already an intriguing classic. But when you realize that this exceptionally affordable coupe has fresh paint, interesting features, and a rebuilt motor, then you know this is exactly the GT you've been waiting for.
A repaint of this coupe was completed in 2016, and you can absolutely tell the difference a professional and modern application makes the moment you see this one in the sunshine. Plus, an MGB GT in its correct shade of standout Bracken Orange just seems appropriate. After all, these hatchback coupes had a bit more flair than the roadsters thanks to the Pininfarina restyle. But beyond this Italian update is the British style we all love. The sleek lines with just the right amount of chrome give this a confidently regal appearance. Because 1974 was the last year they imported the GT version, you have extra historical distinction to go its noble appearance. But beyond just history, you look at the how well the panels line up, how the sweeping trim line runs unbroken over the whole profile, how nicely the newer bumpers shine, and how the iconic Rostyle wheels were refinished to be bright and distinguished. It all tells you just how well cared for this coupe really has been.
Those familiar with the roadster will feel right 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 MG-logo stick shift is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. Plus, as a true grand touring machine, there are comfortable features like an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo and provisions for factory air conditioning. The driver gets a full set of Smiths gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer, as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. The black vinyl bucket seats are looking good, and what really makes the GT distinctive is behind these . Not only is there a rear seat for a true 2+2 experience, but also the hatchback gives you genuine luggage space and versatility that the roadster never could. So while the interior is too nice for us to suggest you make Home Deport runs, we do know you're thinking about packing a bit more into your weekend getaways.
Lift the hood to see the bold red top and big dual side draft carbs of the legendary 1800cc motor. This setup was rebuilt later in the car's life and there are signs of careful ownership ever since. There is a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to front disc brakes and new tires. So this coupe has the kind of investment that just begs for the open road, and that's exactly what an MGB GT is all about. The sound of the power plant, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling will make it your favorite classic.
This is a distinctive coupe that's far rarer than its roadster siblings, and it has the investment to make sure it outshines them everywhere it goes. It's evident that this is truly an MGB GT worth much more than its affordable price. Call today!!!
