Vehicle Description

This 1970 MG MGB represents a value price in the desirable chrome bumper era. Plus, the date-correct motor is a strong runner. So that makes for a nice mix of style and substance in a truly iconic drop-top classic.

This car really is one of the ultimate in svelte and sleek British drop-top designs. Part of that is directly attributed to the purer lines of these earlier chrome bumper cars. A Mk II car like this has one of the most desirable looks around, and so it's great to see the fundamental so complete. Not only do you have the hallmark bumpers (with two-piece rear), but also there's the complete trim, good body panels, and the classic Rostyle wheels. You even get both the standard folding soft top and a racing tonneau. The value price reflects the room left in your budget if you want to upgrade the paintwork. But a car as solid as this car already is just means you have the time to decide when/if you want to give the exterior your personal touch.

Another terrific part of an MGB is how it really connects with the driver. The space between the three-spoke wheel and the stick shift is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. The black vinyl bucket seats are a great fit for a wide range of heights. Anyone settled in these sport seats can reach back with one hand and put up the top, and its fits sung with the roll-up windows to get you home on a rainy day. And while the sound of the motor should be enough for most of us, you also have the option of an AM/FM /CD stereo for upgraded driving music.

Under the hood is the right mix of originality and investments. It starts with a year-correct 1.8-liter motor that is believed to be the factory powerhouse. As you dig a bit deeper, you'll see newer pieces, including the twin SU carbs. It all makes for quite a strong-running classic. The four-speed speed manual transmission is an ideal pairing, because is a smooth-shifting unit that makes it easy to stay in the ideal powerband. A newer brake master cylinder, front disc brakes, and the MGB's legendary nimble handling are all about making the driving experience fun and confident.

This is a value price for a strong-running and ultra-desirable chrome bumper MGB. So if you love the added style this brings to the back roads, it's time to call today!
