Honda S800 racing with Datsun, MGB and Mini Cooper
In-car video of vintage race at Roebling Road in Savannah. I finished 3rd
overall after finding a way past an MGB and a great race against a Datsun
B210. There is also some very entertaining footage of a fast Mini Cooper
leaving black streaks on the track as he slides through the corners.
I am building my first race car, a 1967 MGB-GT with a Jaguar V12 and am
hoping to be competitive in SCCA's EMod class. The class allows any engine
available in a car in the US to be put in any body that was available in
the US. In this video, I start the engine for the first time.

Recently we came across this beautiful MG B GT Overdrive 1974 at The
Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the
largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear
your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one!
The MGB is a sports car launched by MG Cars in May 1962 to replace the MGA.
Introduced as a four-cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added
in 1965. The six-cylinder MGC debuted in 1967; a later derivative fitted
with the Buick-based Rover V8 was made from 1973 to 1976.
MGB/MGC production continued until October 1980 variously by the British
Motor Corporation and its successors, British Motor Holdings and British
Leyland Motor Corporation.
1972 MGB GT, So Cal, Blue Plate, One Owner 39 Yrs, SOLD!
1972 MGB GT, So Cal, Blue Plate, One Owner 39 Yrs, For Sale
This is a fabulous motorcar! Being a Southern California car since new
with one owner for 39 years, this is nearly rust and accident free.
Mechanically this motorcar is fully sorted and feels tight and spry.
Everything works as it should and is ready to enjoy as is or it can be
cosmetically improved for show.
Barbara purchased this GT on June 9, 1972 and took delivery on June 12,
1972 (she had fitted an oil cooler, bumper over-riders and other
accessories). She lives in Cerritos (Los Angeles suburb) and sold the car
late last year, after 39 years of ownership. In July of 1990 she turned
100,000 miles on the odometer and by the mid-1990's she stored the car as
she was getting more elderly. The GT now has 155,000 miles from new but
is mechanically fabulous.
The chrome and stainless are in very nice condition and there is almost no
rust issues as one would expect from a Southern California motorcar.
Recent mechanical re-commissioning includes:
• Rebuilt carbs,
• full new and complete brakes systems,
• heater valve,
• complete tune-up,
• new fuel lines,
• boiled gas tank, and
• various other improvements.
All the work was completed by the engineers at British Service in the Long
This GT is complete with the original owners manual and, incredibly, a
fastidiously maintained log book that documents every fuel fill-up, oil
change, service, battery replacement, tune-up, tire replacement, etc. from
January 1976 through 1991. It details the cost of the fuel and even the
average miles per gallon for every single tank of gasoline!! For example,
on May 26, 1976, Barbara filled up her GT with 9.9 gallons and logged an
average of 26.87 mpg!!
This GT was originally delivered in Forest Green and years ago Barbara
changed the color to its present red. The paint has crazing and could
benefit from a quality repaint (MG's were delivered new with poor quality
paint). The body is in overall excellent condition. There are two small
areas of surface rust on the passenger's side and it has a very small area
with 1/8 inch of filler in the passenger's side rocker panel (see video for
details). Overall this is an exceptional body for a chrome bumper GT.
The tan interior is completely original and is in overall nice condition
(for being original). There are two tears in the driver's seat cover and
discoloration in some of the carpeting, but overall the interior is quite
nice and projects a wonderful patina.
All of the instrumentation performs well and the oil pressure and
temperature operate exactly as a well performing MGB GT should.
Chrome bumper MGB GT's are very desirable. Southern California, one owner
motorcars are the most desirable of any. Although this has patina
cosmetically, the mechanics are excellent. The value guide has the GT's at
No 1 $14,000, No 2 $9,800 and No 3 at $6,300. This is an excellent
motorcar for enjoyment and will likely prove to be a solid investment.

2 Minute MGB Restoration
We turned our previously orange, then red MGB GT into a James Bond style
silver. There must have been about 20 kilograms of body-filler before we
started, then another 20 kilograms after we'd finished!
We then tidied up the interior with new carpets & a new stereo, then I
added a cool keyless entry alarm system (hence the missing keyholes on the
Turned out pretty good.
Made a number of pulls and quickly discovered that the intake gets heat
soaked and power drops off with each run. Simply letting the engine cool
for 5 minutes increased power by 8hp and 30 ft/lb. Even with all the heat,
the engine made 255 hp and 300 ft/lb of torque.
