MG BGT Jubilee 1975 (N) British Racing Green
The MGB GT was announced in 1965 with timeless Pininfarina styling and it was a 2+2 Grand Tourer with the versatility of the hatchback and folding rear seat.
In 1975 to celebrate 50 years of the MG Car Company, a limited run of 750 MGB GT 'Jubilee's' were produced and needless to say, these have a special place in MG history and are highly regarded and desirable.
Each one had a unique numbered plaque bearing the name of the first owner on the dashboard and although the car was based on the newly introduced and often derided black 'rubber bumper' model, there is no doubt that the combination of the Racing Green paintwork, Gold stripes and the specially painted Black & Gold “V8” wheels particularly suit this vehicle.
This beautiful MGB GT Jubilee was built in Abingdon on 21st May 1975 and is Chassis No 736 of the 751 actually built. It was first registered to a Mrs Cynthia May Roper of Bakewell in Derbyshire on 17th June 1975 and carries her name on the plague along with its number 114.
The car was sold to its second owner in 1994 and over the course of his 5 year ownership, he spent £1,000's on restoring the car and also had the Engine was completely rebuilt and uprated to 1950cc.
He sold the car in early 2000 after completing the restoration and the last owner in Leamington Spa kept it for 11 years before selling it to the current owner in October 2011. Since the rebuild, it has only covered 10,700 mostly dry miles and its condition is still exceptional throughout. Currently MOT'd & Taxed until June 2015, the car will be serviced by us before sale and come with a 6 month Warranty.
This has to be one of the best 'Jubilee's' currently available and still at a very realistic price, as they are sure to rise! (Photo's to follow)
