eBay watch: 1972 MG B GT car
If you fancy dipping your toe in the waters of classic car ownership, this 1972 MG B GT could be a good place to start.
That year is important, as it is one of the last tax-exempt MG Bs, as well as being one of the models with chrome bumpers and overdrive in 3rd and 4th gear. It's also described as 'mechanically sound' and with 'sold bodywork', with the added bonus of a Webasto sunroof and Rostyle wheels, not to mention a modern CD MP3 player within.
On the downside, while it sounds fine to drive away and around, the car isn't perfect, with some bodywork issues needing your attention, as well as some of the chrome. The interior is described as 'reasonable', but again, might need a bit of work.
However, it's a great starting point, a practical classic with potential to improve. But best of all, it's available with on reserve - and right now is at £1,450.
