1971 MGB GT, 1798cc. Registration number FTJ 436J. Chassis number GHDS/244995G. Engine number 18V-399E-H146.
he MGB-GT was originally introduced in 1965. By 1967, incremental changes lead to the designation of Mark II (officially the 1968 model year). This model continued in production until August 1971, and was then superseded by the Mk III in October 1971, from chassis number 258004. Like the Mk I and II, the Mk III is a two-door 2+2 powered by a front-mounted, rear-wheel-drive 1798cc B Series engine. The Mark III had a revised interior, with centre console housing rocker switches and two vents in the middle. An armrest was fitted between the front seats, which now had nylon inserts.
FTJ was owned by Cattaneo Catering of the George Hotel in Land of Green Ginger in Hull in 1987 being sold to our deceased vendor in 1990. He passed away in 1999 and it has been in garage storage ever since.
Sold with the V5, 1998 MOT and tax disc plus the purchase receipt. In is now in need of recommissioning, we have driven it on our land and it appears structurally sound. Please note the engine change from the V5 18GG-RWEH 24477
