Description

Thoroughly original, wonderfully preserved, and just brilliant fun. This iconic cute car has bags full of character, from the genuine rostyle wheels to the velour and vinyl mix seats, with the added rare luxury of headrests! A real hands on 4 speed gearbox with the factory 5th and 6th gear overdrive for added economy, it's remarkably easy to drive, eminently capable of keeping up with, and even overtaking some of the modern day traffic. This is a practical sports car too with loads of space for multiple soft bags behind the front seats and in the hatchback, with proper modern inertia reel safety belts for the 2 passengers. And if you're concerned about reliability, well it's done a 12 day grand tour of the South Island with no issues. "Didn't miss a beat" appears pretty frequently in the customer testimonials. So if you want to experience back to the 70's motoring, a rorty exhaust note and many admiring looks, drive something really different with RentAClassics 1972 MG BGT!

Parking details

Nearby on street parking is plentiful and safe in this quiet cul de sac.

Guidelines

No under 25s sorry. Full driving licence valid for at least 3 years for New Zealand required to be sighted prior to taking the car. No smoking or animals in the car. Driving on unsealed surfaces for more than 2km voids insurance and is not permitted. Any traffic offences received by RentAClassic will incur a $100nzd admin fee in addition to the penalty fee.

Faqs

  • What's the minimum insurance excess liability I can get down to?

    $1000nzd. This is charged at $35nzd per 24 hours hire.

  • What's the standard insurance excess liability included in the price?

    $4000nzd is the bond to ensure the car is returned in the condition it went out in. We don't deduct or hold this amount against your credit card, merely make a note of it.

  • What's the luggage space?

    Luggage space = Good! Boot dimensions = 90 x 55 x 40 (cm LWH) An extra 90 x 30 x 60 of space is available on the rear bench. Because our cars tend to have irregular shaped boots, we strongly recommend packing multiple soft bags rather than suitcases.

  • Do you just throw me the keys and say have fun?!

    No, first we provide you with a personal familiarisation session and detailed documentation for your car. Then we hand you the keys and say have fun!

  • How reliable are these older cars?

    Very. We use them ourselves too and put a lot of effort into keeping them well maintained. Most have done road trips of at least 2 weeks with no issues whatsoever. For piece of mind, all our cars come with roadside assistance included in the price.

  • Do you offer one way hires, or pick ups / drop offs to other locations?

    Yes we can do, but normally only for hires of 6 days or more and at extra charge. Please discuss your requirements and we'll try to accommodate.

  • Can I trust RentAClassic?

    Absolutely. We're a boutique family business operating since 2012 with hundreds of very satisfied customers. Check out our TripAdvisor ratings!
