A beautiful, rust free example.....we have been servicing this car for many years. Low fellow purchased it when he was young, had 14k miles, now 66,000 miles. Excellent bodywork, very clean original black paint, excellent floor pan and sills, a few years ago we rebuilt the engine, fitted higher compression pistons, headers, and a 45 DCOE Weber, same time it got a new tan interior, stereo/CD, chrome wire wheels, new radials, AND this 'Limited Edition' B has the most coveted of options....overdrive.
Starts instantly, runs perfectly, fitted with a Weber carb, offers reliable use and spirited performance.
And we COULD perform a complete chrome bumper conversion, add a/c or a powerful supplemental heater (or both), provide a very nice, low mileage, mostly rebuilt car.

Each week, The Daily News @ ClassicCars.com staff gets together for a meeting.
I owned two MGBs long ago — a spanking new ’78 and an old ’73 — but both were gone from me by the year 1985.
