This MGB GT was sold by Dandy Classics in 2018. Although the car was still in well-driving condition, the new owner decided to venture on a nut and bolt restoration. The first phase of this restoration was covered in an earlier blog post.
After shot blasting, the bare metal body received two layers of epoxy primer. New sills were put in, after which the interior and engine bay were painted Jaguar Silver Blue. A stylish 1960’s metallic, also seen on Meghan and Harry’s electric E-type wedding car.
The naked body shell was soon re-united with its rebuilt drive train components. A rolling and driving GT was brought to a professional paint shop in Germany, to be primed, block sanded and finished.
The result looks absolutely stunning. A perfectly finished MGB GT in a bespoke and distinctive colour. Soon to be seen on the road again, after the final assembly stage.
