Classic British Classic Car

One of Britain’s most popular classic cars, an MG BGT, is included in the Charterhouse online classic car auction on 29th July.

“MG is perhaps one of Britains best known and loved classic cars with the B possibly  its most popular model produced.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “With great MG club scenes, a full range of spare parts and although over half a million were produced, including the roadster, MGC and V8, they are still enjoyed by enthusiasts and collectors today.”

The MGB GT in the Charterhouse auction rolled off the production line in 1972. Owned by a retired engineer for the past 7 years it has undergone a total restoration programme. This not only included a full mechanical rebuild, but also a new Heritage body shell.

This chrome bumper coupe is painted in British Racing Green, the interior is trimmed in black leather with a walnut dash and it also has the desirable overdrive and wire wheels for that period look.

With the owner not getting any younger, he has decided now is the time to let someone else enjoy the car and entered his beloved MG into the Charterhouse classic & vintage car auction estimated at £10,000-12,000, which is less than the cost of a new Heritage body shell

Charterhouse are now accepting entries for their auctions of classic and vintage cars on the 29th July followed by classic and vintage motorcycles on 27th August auction and their auction of silver, jewellery and watches with a selection of wine, port and whisky on 6th & 7th August.
