1967 MG BGT Coupe 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
Rust is the biggest problem (at 30 years what do you expect?). Steering rack has just been replaced and brakes tend to stick when new. The cylinder head cracked last year but was not difficult to replace.
Leaking front section means you get wet feet but that's all part of the fun of owning a classic. If buying a classic check for availability of cheap spares (MGs are very well catered for) and that the car has a bulging file of history - the more you know the better!
This is a fun, classic sports car for anyone who hates the plastic bubble cars of the 90's.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
