If you are in the market to buy a classic sports car then put this MG B GT on your list. We are selling this classic British sports car that has so many new items added, upgraded or repaired that we needed to make our website page longer just to fit them all.

If you can’t be bothered trying to restore an old sports car then this vehicle gives you the perfect base to start from. Most of the hard work has been done & by a passionate owner who has carefully planned each step. You can see from the list of upgrades each aspect has been taken care of.

What this means is if this is your very first classic sports car then there is less chance of experiencing any issues with it. You’ll enjoy a weekend drive or could even use it as a daily vehicle quite easily. Peace of mind as well because Peninsula Sports Cars can provide servicing, upgrades or even further modifications to this MG sports car if you’d like.

The only things that someone may consider finishing off are the engine bay and fitting the rear seat. It would complete all the other great restoration work that has been done inside and out and help to present this vehicle in all it’s British sports car glory. 

As you can see from the photos it presents really well. How many owners get under their car to show it off proudly right? The vehicle is in our workshop and inspections are welcome, we can even throw it up on a hoist if you’d like to get a closer work of the underside. 

It represents pretty good value when you consider there are so few for sale right now in Australia, either they haven’t been restored or they are heavily modified.
