1972 MG B GT


Lot details

Registration No: KPD 144K
Chassis No: GHD5.269450G
MOT: September 2023

  • Features Webasto sunroof, wire wheels and period Sharp radio-cassette player
  • An older restoration documented by photographs within the history file
  • Current MOT with no advisories

Introduced in May of 1962, the monocoque MG B was a welcome progression from the body-on-frame T-Series and MG A models that preceded it. The more modern construction resulted in weight savings (the car turned the scales at 2028lb), reduced manufacturing costs, and notably tauter handling. Initially, the B was only available in Roadster form - the Pininfarina-penned hatchback GT derivative, with 2+2 seating, not being offered until October 1965. At launch, the model was powered by a three-bearing version of the 1798cc B-Series engine that produced 95bhp at 5,400rpm. However, this unit was replaced by a five-bearing unit two years into production. The MkII model of 1967 brought an updated manual gearbox with revised ratios and synchromesh. By the time GT production ceased in 1980, a total of 125,282 are said to have been produced.

Presented in Red with contrasting Red-piped black interior, this lovey MG features a Webasto sunroof, wire wheels and period Sharp radio-cassette player. Subject to an older body-off restoration, documented with a number of photographs within the history file, ‘KPD 144K’ now displays 32,325 miles on the odometer and comes with an MOT valid until 01 September 2023 with no advisories. As well as the large collection of photographs, the car is also offered for sale with a small history file including a number of previous MOT certificates, previous V5C documents and the current V5C which displays 10 former keepers.
