How much power has my MGB GT lost in 43 years? - Dyno run!
I put my car on a Dyno to see how much power it has lost over the years. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/YouTube.AdamC3046 Secret Cruises invited me to Surrey Rolling Road to take pics and vids at a Dyno day that they were hosting. While I was there, I decided to put my car on the Dyno to see how much power it had lost. The MGB GT had a claimed original BHP of 95. The reading of the Dyno was 79.9, which records the wHP, rather than bHP. But simply speaking, I had only lost 16hp from new. Technically speaking, wHP is roughly 15% less than the bHP, so my car's original wHP would've been 80.75. So my car had realistically only lost 0.85wHP over the years, which is fantastic! I had managed to reach 105mph in my car (With an accurate speedometer) when I attended VMax-200 at Bruntingthorpe runway. So I know my car still had most of its power it originally had.

Restored RHD 1967 MGB GT - One Take
The MGB GT is a collector car to look out for. Though small, underpowered, and with hugely varying build quality, their charm and style will undoubtedly raise their value in the future. This right-hand drive example was lovingly restored to stock configuration, with the exception of slightly wider tires for a bit more grip.

MG BGT classic car review film - Paul Woodford
The MGB is an iconic British sports car that had something for everyone. A claim further enhanced with the introduction of the BGT in 1965. Suddenly the world's favourite roadster had a roof, but at this point some argue British Leyland stood still, and that the introduction of a Pininfarina coupe into the range wasn't enough to keep up with other European and even Japanese car makers in the innovation stakes. Over the years, the classic appeal of the MGB GT has steadily grown, and for many, it is a sports car which defines a generation. But how does it work for a new generation of motoring enthusiasts? Motoring presenter, Paul Woodford continues his series of classic motoring films with classicsdriven.co.uk and Great Escape Cars, and rediscovers an appeal with the BGT that goes beyond '70s marketing slogans.
