Description
 
Just finished.....a beautiful, rust free, really excellent rubber bumper B just converted in our workshop. See, the later model cars had three very minor, barely noticeable, teeny tiny negatives. Ugly, gutless, and ill handling. No big deal, right? However, easy to overlook the stengths....less time to rust, better built and more rust preventative, front and rear sway bars, servo (power) assist brakes, bigger gauges, nicer dashboards, electric cooling fans, solid state ignitions........quite a list. Great IF they didn't have those minor negative. And this is the resolution: convert to wire wheels, lower to pre 1975 ride height (greatly improves handling), new springs, twin SUs (to regain lost power), a complete professional chrome bumper conversion with new lights, grille, bumpers, sheet metal and paintwork. Then we added a wood dash and steering wheel, modern stereo/CD, this car already had a brand new $3,000 interior, new top and a very good tonneau, 20k miles on a professionally rebuilt engine, AND overdrive. Really, about the best 'touring' MGB of all time. For whatever reason, these cars seem to run better and shift better and drive better than earlier MGBs. And with ALL of the mechanical and esthetric improvements we have done, the result is a lovely classic sports car that is reliable, easy to service, and offers a nice level of performance and use.
