We were first introduced to our 1977 MG BGT at last year’s Bridge Classic Cars Classic and Sports Car Show. The current and ONLY owner purchased the car brand new in 1977 and due to unforeseen circumstances the car was tucked away in the 80’s not to be used there after. …until now. We heard […]

Pete is currently in the process of rebuilding the braking system of our 1977 MGBGT. As you can see, the brakes have been stripped back, cleaned, refurbished and new brake shoes and cylinders have been fitted. The suspension has also been stripped, cleaned and overhauled.
Our original MGBGT fuel tank has unfortunately suffered from the years of neglect. The tank is full of rust and for the cost of a new product is not worth trying to save. A brand new fuel tank has arrived from our colleagues at Moss Europe.
