eBay watch: 1970s MGB GT Coupe – with just 25,000 miles on the clock


The weather is picking up and before you know it, it'll be long evenings and sports car weather. So now might be the perfect time to pick up a 'project' car – like this 1970s MGB GT Coupe, which has much to recommend it.

For a start, this 'barn find' has been trapped in time – as has its 1798cc engine. So the car has a genuine 25,753 miles on its clock since being built back in 1973. It's also packed full of optional extras, like overdrive, wooden interior trim, genuine MG mudflaps, chrome bumpers, chrome trim and chrome Mk2 wheel nuts. That's the good bit.

On the downside, it is a barn find and while a rebuild has made the car into a runner, there is still work to do on the car, both mechanically and cosmetically. More on that (and images) on the listing.

But let's end on a high. This British classic is currently at £205 – and there's no reserve.
