1974 MG BGT 1.8 petrol


Great classic sports car


Not much, but I usually renew items before they get suspect (e.g. brakes, ignition).

General Comments:

High quality of build, very reliable if properly maintained.

Mine has been slightly tuned (stage 1 - air cleaners and exhaust), so the performance is OK.

Overdrive gives relaxed cruising.

Steering very good, handling on good surfaces quite pleasant. Doesn't like rough roads (no surprise).

Not particularly silent, but a pleasant sound. Booped old British machinery...

Very easy to maintain, parts availability excellent, parts are reasonably cheap. MGOC a great club.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
