Here is your chance to own a spectacular, fully restored 1979 MGB! Professionally appraised for $28,000 and described by the appraiser as the nicest MGB he had seen in 30 years.
Classic Automobile Restoration is pleased to offer its latest full vehicle restoration.
We started with a well maintained and solid MGB and stripped the vehicle of all its components and meticulously hand sanded the full body down to the metal. We then repaired every small dent and panel and primed the vehicle, repeating this process three times to ensure the car was flawless. We then applied the paint and clear coats and wet sanded and sealed the whole vehicle to a glass like, show quality finish.
We installed DynaMat sound insulation throughout the cabin to reduce noise and heat transmission in the cabin by 40%. We restored all the suspension and drive train components by sandblasting each part and coating them in a high quality black gloss finish, thus ensuring this vehicle will look spectacular for years to come. We replaced most of the cars components with new parts including; new side markers, new tail lights, new windshield, new chrome trim and sill plates, new brakes, new muffler, new tires, new door, new shocks and suspension components, new window and body seals, new convertible top, new antenna, new stereo and speakers, new seat belts, new hoses, new gaskets, seals and bushings, new engine mounts, shift knob, new badges, new Hella Headlamp conversion, new horns, new front grill and air grill, new radiator, new shocks, new wipers and wiper arms, new interior and exterior door handles, new under dash cover kit and new hood insulation.
We replaced the full interior including new floor mats, new premium carpets in both the interior and trunk new sun visors, new pedal pads, new rear view mirror, new door pulls, new external mirrors, new center console and armrest new seat covers and new door panels and trim panels.
The engine has been fully rebuilt including new valves and gaskets throughout, new plugs and wires, new seals, new hoses, new aluminum valve cover, new filters and the wiring harness has been meticulously checked and restored and each connection has been cleaned and checked for conductivity. The engine has been converted to the Twin SU Carbs and a choke has been discreetly hidden under the dash.
We restored each wheel including the full size spare and replaced all the chrome trim rings, wheel studs and center covers to ensure this vehicle will turn heads. This vehicle is better than new and you will not find a more impressive example anywhere. If you are looking for a classic that will not require constant repairs, look no further. Call now as this vehicle will not last long.
