1972 MG B GT Costello V8 MK1 3,500cc For Sale - £22,950

Very rare MK1 Costello V8

Genesis for the MG B V8, shoehorning the Rover V8 into the MGB GT was the brain child of Ken Costello, an idea so good and a product so well executed that it was copied by MG themselves.

Of the 225 Costello V8s 190 of them were GT bodied.

A decision was taken in the early 2000s that the best way to make repairs to the body was to replace it entirely, a replacement shell was sourced and the major mechanical parts were transferred to it. Unfortunately what remained of the original shell was destroyed by fire in 2003.
There is a signed certificate of authenticity from Ken Costello in the accompanying history file.
