The latest addition to Merlin Classics race cars is a 1967 MGB GT, this shell is an early example with a narrow gearbox tunnel, this has been modified to fit the later gearbox. This car has undergone a full restoration with chassis and shell sandblasted to bare metal, after which a lot of metalwork was required and completed.
This metalwork included but wasn’t limited to – new intermediate & outer sills both sides, new outriggers both sides, new rear quarter bottom halves both sides as well as other metalwork in the floors and arches. The rear “T” sections were removed and the tops of both rear wings smoothed out. The doors are steel with standard windows and quarter lights stripped of interior trim.
