We can see that all the gaps are even and symmetrical as well, along with having great fit of the doors, hood, and trunk. It's covered in the Carmine Red paint that's accented by the Black MGB Stripe. The paint has a gorgeous finish that's slick to the touch. We can also see that this '78 comes with the side molding that has a brilliant shine along with having the black bumpers front and rear. The rest of the trim around the windshield and vent windows is equally nice along with the luggage rack. It also has the black convertible top that goes up and down with ease and is great condition. To finish off the look it's sitting on the 14" MG wheels with 185/60 Tires.
Next, we will look at the interior. On the inside it's done in the classic black that flows perfectly with the exterior scheme. It features the bucket seats and console that houses the four speed MG Wood Shifter. The seat covers and padding and are in great condition and provide a great ride. Both the door panels are very nice as well. Looking at the dash we can see that the pad is just as nice and has been extremely well cared for over the course of its life. All the gauges are in great condition as well. This MGB has the factory style steering wheel and features the manual shift in the console. All the carpet looks to be in very nice condition as well.
Finally, we will get to the driveline of this MG. Under the hood everything is neat and clean. It's powered by the 18V 1800 engine that's dressed like it would have been from the factory. This '78 is set up with Power Brakes that features front disc and rear drums. For exhaust it has the factory style manifold with single pipe and muffler. The 1800 engine is mated to the four-speed manual transmission and is rear wheel drive. On the highway this MGB runs out phenomenal and will make an excellent addition to someone looking for a super nice convertible cruiser!
