A nice, clean, locally owned car......60,000 well cared for miles since new (around 1,500 per year average), excellent body and show quality maroon paint, tan interior, modern stereo/CD, modern air conditioning, Rostyle mag wheels, new 175R14 Radials, runs and drives like new. AND looks great.
And absolutely dead stock.....single Stromberg carb, original air pump, essentially the same as when it left the factory.
Air conditioning has just been fully serviced and makes this car a worthy alternative to a contemporary car for daily use of trips/vacations.
As a sweet little, fun touring sports car, has its virtues. Starts instantly, runs perfectly, drives very well, zero smoke, perfect oil pressure, everything works electrically, recently replaced radiator and a full service, literally ready to go.
AND as a late model MGB, is thoroughly factory rust proofed (and not a spec of rust underneath), has front and rear sway bars, electronic ignition, better cooling system, bigger gauges, a working clock, smooth engine, better gearbox, on and on and on.
Of course, IF one likes this car and wants changes, modifications, alternations, or whatever, it is our specialty. More power? Sure, we can install a set of racing headers, a new intake manifold, and a new 32/36 DGV Weber carb. Want better handling? We can lower the car to the pre 1975 ride height. More classic look? We can convert to 14" or 15" center lock wire wheels (or Minilite bolt on alloy wheels). Want to make the car lighter and improve the exterior look? Fine...we can perform a complete chrome bumper conversion. On and on. And a buyer can pick and choose as he wishes.
Best of all, the car is a wonderful starting point being rust free, great paint and interior, and excellent mechanics.
Just in, being serviced, and ready for sale,
The simple pleasures of a vintage MGB race car are experienced on a twisting road course by British motor journalist and racer Dickie Meaden, who is won over by the nuanced handling of the classic sports car, even letting out a whoop as he rips around a corner on three wheels. While claiming to never […]
During this time spent indoors during shelter in place, I have been able to continue work on the MGB GT restoration. The latest project has been tackling the gearbox. For a bit of history: The 3-syncro overdrive-equipped gearbox in this car is the one in it when the car was delivered. The gearbox was rebuilt […]
While many people are feeling frustrated about the number of event cancellations, I’m looking at this change in scheduling another way: I have much more time to work on the MGB GT restoration at The Paddock. My next task for the MG is to reseal the engine. Since I already knew that John Twist, the […]
Editor’s note: The first sports car driven by our East Coast editor, Andy Reid, was an MGB, back when he was just 14 years old. But it wasn’t until 2019 that he actually owned such a car, a 1967 MGB GT. He began to restore the car, hoping to be done in time to drive […]
The Pick of the Day is a proper entry into British sports car madness
But he’s learned a lot more about the car and plans to drive it this fall to Hilton Head
Getting the crud off the drivetrain and peering into the gearbox
The Pick of the Day could be a collector’s daily driver
But there’s good news as well, the discovering of the car’s original paint shade
