For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a well restored 1978 MG B. This shade of red may look a bit off from other red MGs. This one's painted in an eye popping Alfa Romeo Red and looks great! This little MG B has been fully restored and as good or better than new. During the restoration, quality of workmanship was the key priority. Do it once and do it right. When cutting out any rust, the metal was first sandblasted and then painted prior to welding in any new sheet metal insuring a long lasting and proper repair. In addition to the body and paint work, the interior was also gone through and includes new carpet, seat foam and covers. There is also a new windshield, all window rubber, full engine rebuild, new alternator, new master cylinder, front suspension, brakes, soft top and boot. Since the restoration, the car has covered 300 miles. The odometer reads 89,914 and is not known to be actual or not. Regardless, the car is in near new condition and ready for the road. Going very well with the Alfa Romeo red paint is a tan and black interior with cinnamon colored seats. Black steel wheels with beauty rings add to the flare and both bumpers have been refinished further complimenting the quality restoration.

The classic MGB has always been an attractive and affordable choice for sports-car fans, but with one complaint: it could use more power.
