MGB/RV8/MG F/Z Type 1974-2003 market review

MG clung to its traditions a little too long and in the face of growing legislative barriers. The ‘rubber nose’ cars which weren’t sold new in Australia don’t handle or perform as earlier versions did and their values remain below those for ‘chrome bumper’ cars.

Exceptions are 1990s RV8s and 1970s GT V8s which can exceed $50,000, however these are rare.

| Buyer's Guide: MGB GT V8

MG’s 1990s revival brought the troubled F models and under-rated Z Series sedans. Any of these at under $10,000 make decent daily-use cars. $15,000 will buy an excellent example of the later TF135 and 160.

MGB 1974-80 $15,585 [13] 

MGB GT 1974-80 $15,110 [10]

RV8 $35,850 [7] 

MG F 1997-2002 $7855 [29] 

MG TF135/160 $10,420 [18] 

ZT Sedan $5300 [5]
