Fastback: 1970 MG MGB GT

The MGB GT was a fixed roof version of Morris Garage's iconic MGB roadster, introduced in 1965 and built through 1980 for various markets.  When first released, the GT used the same BMC B-series inline-4 cylinder engine, but added small back seats for miniature passengers and Pininfarina designed greenhouse with a fastback lift-gate and storage area.  Prices for most classic European cars have graduated info crazy territory, but the MGB GT has remained surprisingly affordable for whatever reason.

  1. Always loved the look & format unfortunately rust prone & British = pricey parts for plebeian performance. Just can't afford to be a hipster with that fun per dollar ratio

  2. Back in the ancient days I had a college roommate who had a MGC-GT with two glass roof pieces like a later firebird. I have never seen one since. Anyone ever seen one? This one needs a ppi. overdrive so.......
