November 2021 Classics Auction

 
Lot 58
 

1971 MGB GT
Semi-Sebring rally car.

Registration - UAM 230J

Chassis No. - GHDS-2366029

M.O.T. - Exempt

Odometer - 63

This tidy MGB would be an ideal purchase for somebody looking to dip their toes into the world of classic rallying. Tidily presented, it is described by the vendor as ‘a very solid car’ and features a number of new body panels including ‘semi-Sebring’ front and rear valances. Overall, he views the engine and transmission as ‘excellent’, the bodywork and paintwork as ‘good’ and the interior trim as ‘average’. The array of competition upgrades includes: a full Safety Devices roll cage; internally mounted fuel and battery lines; Red Top 30 rally battery; battery cut-off switch; period bucket seats; TRS harnesses; a pair of Cibié Oscar rally lamps; rear spot light; new Minilite-style wheels shod with Dunlop tyres; faired-in headlights; oil cooler; Oselli rocker cover; alloy catch tank; Aeroquip brake hoses; stainless steel exhaust system; and a leather-rimmed steering wheel. The vendor describes the engine as ‘strong, with good oil pressure’, while the cylinder head has apparently been recently refurbished with new valves and seats. The rear brake drums and shoes have also been renewed and the four-speed manual gearbox features overdrive on both third and top gear. The front cross-member has been rebuilt with replacement bottom arms and bushes. Recently resprayed in the original MGB colour of Old English White and trimmed in black vinyl, ‘UAM 230J’ comes complete with an Historic Vehicle Registration Certificate and V5 and would be a very affordable entrant in, for example, HERO events such as Le Jog.

The GT version of the MGB was launched in 1965. By the time production ceased in October 1980, a total of 125,282 had been manufactured.

In summary:

  • Recently subjected to a fair degree of body and mechanical refurbishment and a complete respray
  • Equipped with a number of motorsport-oriented upgrades
  • An affordable passport into the world of historic rallying
