BaT Exclusive: Steel-Dash 1967 MGB GT

Ginetta G12 rear

This 1967 MGB GT (Chassis GBD010950P) is a well preserved example with a truckload of desirable spares and a currently inoperable overdrive. The seller put together an excellent Picasa photo album with captions (link), showing that the sale includes some very cool vintage America Racing Libre wheels and the corresponding 4-lug rear axle and front hubs. An additional steel dash and the tired factory engine and transmission are included, and the car currently sports a modified engine from the same year with Sean Brown head, VP-12 cam, and side-draft carb as well as an overdrive transmission that won’t currently engage overdrive. The seller says that it runs very well apart from that issue, that the interior is excellent, and that the Grampian Gray paint is good driver quality. It is available in Oakland, California for $11, 900.

The car came from Bakersfield, California where the previous owner had painted it and put in mostly all new interior. The paint has some chips and minor orange peel, and lower drivers door sill has small bubbles starting, but no other rust according to the seller. The seller admits that he is no overdrive expert, and after adding new seals, solenoid, wiring harness, switch, and bearings, it still does not want to engage. He suspects that an expert with these units is required to help sort it out.

- Martin Luther King Jr.
'However sugarcoated and ambiguous, every form of authoritarianism must start with a belief in some group's greater right to power, whether that right is justified by sex, race, class, religion, or all four. However far it may expand, the progression inevitably rests on unequal power and airtight roles within the family.'
- Gloria Steinem
'...the world's 358 billionaires ... have more assets than the combined incomes of countries representing nearly half -- 45 per cent -- of the planet's population.'
