Perhaps the best integrated body mods I've seen on a rubber bumper GT.
Bodykit? Dunno, but it looks pretty good.

Appendum: owner advises the car was originally chrome bumper. He says 'There only three of these as far as I know and one is a roadster and the other is in the USA. The company making the bodies went bust and so they are very rare. It's all metal body shell just the wings and front and rear valances are grp.'

I remember seeing one at an event here in the States somewhere. Not sure if it was one of the three. I do remember commenting that the rear flare made good place to park one's beer. ;)

Would have been nice to have a peek under the hood.

Oddly enough, I made that point to the seller, who says he's in hospital, and not even in the UK. The garage where the car's at has had it for quite a while doing or rather not doing the necessary to get it going. They are apparently due to take some engine shots and add them to the listing.
Reserve is met, so it should sell anyway, although not to me.

In the late 70s I had an MGC GT which I wrecked in a head-on, thereby enhancing the rarity value of its surviving siblings. I imagine that the cabin of the C and B are the same, it was well laid out and a nice place to be.
