This 1972 MG MGB was purchased in 2006from a storage unit in Texas and subsequently received a refurbishment that was completed in 2008. The work included a rebuild of the 1.8L inline-four and 4-speed manual transmission, along with the addition of a supercharger, new brake and suspension components, an interior refresh, and more. The car was driven sparingly following the completion of the project until the owner's recent passing. This MGB is being offered by the seller on behalf of the owner's widow with records from the refurbishment and aclean Kansas title.
