For Sale: 1975 MG MGB in Stratford, Connecticut

Vehicle Description

Don't have a history, really know little other than our own tests and observations.    But we have done some intensive examination, thorough testing, and this is what we found:

Excellent body/floors/chassis, new BRG paint, mostly new tan interior, wood dashboard, very good top and tonneau,  complete chrome bumper conversion including elimination of side lights, excellent inside and out.

BUT, the big news is the 2.3 liter Ford Mustang OHC engine.....50-60 psi oil pressure when hot, 165-175 psi compression in every cylinder, Weber carb, tubular headers, around 140hp, huge aluminum radiator, electronic CDI multi spark ignition, 5 speed close ratio transmission, 15" Minilites with P195/60 H rated tires, REALLY goes>>>>>>>>>>   As in ZOOOOOOOOOM.

Thermostatically controlled electric radiator fan, excellent wiring, nicely painted and detailed engine bay, digital stereo, GPS speedo, all in a really neat, modified (and improved) MGB.

Alas, due to the engine being situated back in the engine bay for superior weight distribution, the original heater has been removed.   However, we offer a far more powerful auxiliary heater that would fit nicely under the glove box, connected to the cooling system, and with a more powerful blower, offers far better heat than the car's original heater.    So, in the end, no loss, only gain.

From the exterior, looks stock.  And with the light, compact Ford OHC engine, excellent weight distribution.   With four cylinders, plenty of room in the engine bay for routine service.  And with the big Weber carb, huge alloy radiator, modern electronic ignition, and five speed transmission, sort of the best MGB NEVER sold in the USA!   (and you can have the engine and trans serviced at your local gas station)
