Lot details

Registration No: KAM 66F
Chassis No: GHD-3/130453
MOT: August 2023

  • Treated to a meticulous 'bare metal' restoration from Dec '04 - Sep '05 which was subsequently chronicled across three issues of 'Enjoying MG' magazine
  • Uprated with an unleaded 1950cc Ivor Searle engine (circa 20,000 miles ago)
  • Converted to 12-volt, negative earth electrics and fitted with a Kenlowe fan, oil cooler, Webasto sunroof and improved heater etc
  • Original number plate - 'KAM 66F' - independently valued at over £5,000
  • Overdrive (on 3rd and 4th gears), heated rear windscreen, wire wheels
  • Large history file including Heritage Certificate, restoration photo album and numerous receipts/ invoices etc

Introduced in October 1965, the GT version of MG’s established B sportscar was styled by Pininfarina. A handsome, 2+2-seater Fastback, it boasted the same peppy performance and responsive handling as its Roadster sibling.

According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, this late MkI GT was despatched to The Bath Garages Ltd of Somerset on August 11th 1967 complete with a heater, overdrive and wire wheels. Road registered as ‘KAM 66F’ the following month (a number plate which has recently been valued at over £5,000), the MG changed hands several times thereafter before being bought by Jack Burkitt in 1989, who nicknamed it ‘Kamilla’. An enthusiastic owner, Mr Burkitt drove the 2+2-seater all over the UK as well as enjoying various European sorties. Treated to a photographically documented ‘bare metal’ restoration from December 2004 to September 2005 that was subsequently documented in the May, June and July 2006 issues of ‘Enjoying MG’ magazine, the GT was also uprated with an unleaded 1950cc Ivor Searle engine, electronic ignition, oil cooler, Webasto sunroof, heated rear screen, Spax shock absorbers, copper brake pipes and halogen headlights etc. Much of the work was carried out by Westgate Classics with parts supplied via the MG Owners’ Club and MGB Hive. Converted to 12 volt, negative earth electrics, the MG is understood to have covered some 20,000 miles since its rejuvenation was completed.

Purchased from Mr Burkitt by Alan Foxley in 2007 who in turn sold it to the vendor two years ago, ‘KAM 66F’ remains notably presentable. Starting readily and running well during our recent photography session, it has been taken to various classic car shows and regularly MOT tested during the current ownership. Representing the purest form of the GT, Mk1 versions have become increasingly sought after in recent years. Offered for sale at a fraction of what a similar ‘bare metal’ restoration would cost today, ‘KAM 66F’ is accompanied by a V5C Registration Document, large history file and MOT certificate valid until August 2023.
