This wonderful MG MGB GT was sold new in the Netherlands. The car was shipped from the UK on 17 October 1966, and the car arrived at the MG representative (Putter in Almelo the Netherlands) on 24 October 1966. First owner was Mr. Brugman who lived in Delden, and who was the owner/ director of machine factory Brugman in Almelo. About a year and a half later the MG was traded in at Keizer’s Automobielen in Enschede. The MG was sold to the second owner who had traded in a VW Beetle, a photo of this invoice is included with the documentation.

In 1978 the car changed hands a few times in a short period of time. The new owner, Mr. G. Strengers had the car extensively refurbished. The front and rear wings, and the sills were renewed, reversing lights and a heated rear window where installed, the dynamo was exchanged for an alternator and the electrical system was converted from positive ground to negative ground. The engine was overhauled and a 4-speed gearbox with overdrive was fitted. The restoration and overhaul took two years to be completed.

In 1989 the MG was sold to MG club member Mr. T. Taselaar. In 1990 Mr. Taselaar traded the MG with Mr. Sieverink for his MGB roadster to be restored by Sieverink. Being a British car specialist Sieverink used this MGB GT as a business presentation for his company visiting clients and club events. In this period the car was upgraded with vented front disc brakes, adjustable Spax shocks, a Kenlow fan with manual override, a Stainless-Steel exhaust, electric windscreen washer, halogen headlights, a Motolita competition sterring wheel with wood rim, and new leather upholstery as per original specifications, black leather with white piping and black carpet.

In September 1993 the car was sold to the current owner (MG club member) who has cherished the car for over 30 years! Three years ago, the car was given new paint in the original colour, British Racing Green. In the last years a high-torque starter, 123 ignition, and K&N sports air-filters were fitted.

The MGB was very well serviced and garaged over the years, the automobile is in a very good and wonderful condition. The owner has written an extensive account of the car’s history. The car comes with a Heritage certificate and photographs to illustrate the history. The car still sports its original Dutch registration. The MGB is in general not a rare classic, the left hand driven MGB GT with odometer reading in kilometres is rare; only 1477 examples were produced with these specifications.

The beautiful lines of this car are thanks to the bodybuilder Pininfarina. The coupe was a sportier variant of the MGB Roadster and was a combination of performance, elegance, and affordability. As a result, this car was already highly beloved worldwide in its time. The MGB GT is considered a highlight in British automotive history and contributed to the popularity of the MG brand.
