A nice example of the most desirable of all MGBs....a 1967, the last year before the appplication of EPA and DOT regulations. And just gorgeous in black with red interior (and black piping).
Didn't get a history but exterior is quite straight, bodywork looks to solid with no indication of bondo, black paint is older but with plenty of shine and quite presentable. Most of the chrome is new as is the tonneau cover and convertible top. Has wire wheels (15" which offers higher gearing for lower revs on the highway, engine has excellent oil pressure, no smoke, and ample power. Trans is quite and has good synchronization. A great 'driver' that is sufficiently clean to take to a local car show.

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
