1974 MGBGT Coupe



mgbgt





I bought this GT on the internet. It was a running car, but I did not care for much of the engineering. I converted the unreliable fuel injection system to carburetor, added billett aluminum pulleys, rewired the car, using fuses and relays, installed a new aluminum radiator, replaced the restrictive exhaust with a free flowing quiet system, and changed the clutch actuating system to hydraulic slave cylinder. I then installed a 3.07 rear end from an MGC to make the car a true highway cruiser. It now runs and drives very nicely.



Here are some photos of the car as it is now.
