With its more unique styling, nimble handling, and extra practicality, this 1969 MGB GT is one of those great classics you never need much convincing to enjoy. An MGB GT dressed in an Italian-style blue just seems appropriate. After all, these hatchback coupes had a bit more flair than the roadsters thanks to an update by Pininfarina. But beyond this Italian update is the British style we all love. The sleek lines with just the right amount of chrome give these earlier MGBs like this one a confidently regal appearance. The later cars trade in their chrome grille and chrome rear bumpers for black plastic units, so this one appreciates its history. 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 wood grain stick shift is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. 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. Plus, there have been some nice upgrades like the AM/FM/Cassette stereo and bucket seats finished in leather. What really makes the GT distinctive is behind these buckets. The hatchback gives you genuine luggage space and versatility that the roadster never could. Lift the hood to see the small block Ford 302 engine rebuilt less than 100 miles ago. Four speed manual transmission. The body has been modified to look like a Sebring and is all handmade metal. No fiberglass, all metal. The suspension has been beefed up with tube shocks. There's a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to front disc brakes and new Goodyear tires (215/60/15 on rear and 195/60/15 on front). 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 motor, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling will make it your favorite classic. Call today, 480-256-1459.
