MGB/RV8/MG F/Z Type 1974-2003 - 2018 Market Review

Local sales of MGBs stopped in 1973 however arrivals of northern hemisphere cars continued unabated.

From the USA and other places we received a stream of ‘rubber-nose’ Roadsters, GTs and a few Midgets.

Values are considerably below the money achieved by local ‘chrome bumper’ cars, although this year’s sample did include a black Limited Edition on offer at well above the money asked by US sellers.

Rover-engined RV8s still pop up regularly but aren’t as valuable as the very scarce 1970s GT V8.

MG Fs and later derivatives are holding value and offer affordable fun with minimal collector potential.

Except for the 260 version with its 4.6-litre V8, ZT sedans generate little money or interest.

MGB 1974-80 $14,865 [22]

MGB GT 1974-80 $15,965 [9]

RV8 $38,170 [5]

MG F 1997-2002 $9310 [30]
