New and Unregistered MG BGT See the Light of Day

Charterhouse Auctioneers in Sherborne have been instructed to sell one of the last MG B’s ever produced and has never been registered for road use.

mgb.JPG“We often come across rare and unusual cars and motorbikes in our specialist vehicle auctions, and it is fair to say that sometimes vehicles have had many owners including the odd vicar and lady driver, but this MG is very special as it has never been registered.” Commented Richard Bromell. “And with only 53 miles recorded on the speedometer, it is an opportunity for someone to buy and preserve a unique piece of motoring history.”

This MG BGT, in Panther black, has another stable mate with important motoring history in the form of a 1948 Norton Manx TT racing motorbike.

“With only a revolution counter and no speedometer, we will never know how many miles this Norton has travelled, but with 37.73 mile Mountain course in the Manx Grand Prix we know it will be more than the MG as this motorbike was raced in 1948, 1949 and in 1951.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “Over the past few years, there has been massive renewed interest in these racing machines which are now eligible for historic races.”

Also entered into the sale in Sherborne on Saturday 12th April are the unusual such as a 1916 American LaFrance fire engine from San Francisco £14,000-18,000, a Sunbeam Rapier convertible owned by one family until last year £4,000-5,000, a Lotus Elan convertible £9,000-10,000, a 1950 Landrover £2,000-3,000, a Willys Jeep £5,000-7,000, A Triumph TR4 £5,000-6,000, a Jaguar XK150 £20,000-25,000 and an AC Cobra replica with a massive 5700cc V8 engine professionally built at £12,000-15,000 which are always firm favourites.
