A beautiful chrome bumper conversion, all work professionally done. New bumpers, overriders, grille, new sheet metal, lights, on and on to convert an ugly rubber bumper MGB into a beautiful chrome bumper car.
And there is more....rebuilt engine, twin SU carbs, improved manifolds, excellent 4 speed transmission with overdrive (5th gear), A LOT OF WORK DONE (which we can see): thicker rear sway bar, rear tube shocks conversion, front cross drilled rotors, Aeroquip brake lines, spotless detailed engine bay, perfect wiring harness and electrics, all new splined hubs, new chrome knock offs, new radial tires, new muffler, beautiful detailed interior, wood dashboard, carpeted trunk, modern stereo with USB input, electric windows (and they work well), leather seats, on and on and on. AND NO RUST underneath, excellent body and paint, beautiful in every way.
AND has perfect working power windows.....geez, talk about luxury!!!!!!!!!!
New convertible top, electronic ignition, thermostatically controlled cooling fans, power assist disc brakes, ALL of the virtues of an early MGB, all of the virtues of a later car. Gone are the 'ugly, ill handling, gutless' nature of later Bs and in this car, the perfect compromise.
Add air conditioning (which we can do) and one could have a beautiful classic sports car that would duplicate the use of a contemporary car. And our a/c units have auxiliary heater units I have tested and found to provide a toasty interior at 10 degrees.
These are great cars and I think this is one of the best ever.
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
