For Sale: 1972 MG MGB in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1972 MG MGB Mk III - 1800cc 4 Cylinder - 4 Speed Manual With OD - 52k Miles - British Racing Green Exterior With Matching Wheels - Black Interior Manufactured and marketed by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) from 1962 until 1980, the MGB is a two-door sports car that replaced the previous MGA vehicle. The MGB was one of the first cars to feature controlled crumple zones designed to protect the driver and passenger in the event of a crash. It also experienced its biggest market in America where buyers appreciated its reliability and relative comfort for its size. The 1972 MGB was the last year to have the recessed grill and was updated to have a center console with armrest. Sales hit 39,393 for the 1972 model year, the best year ever for the MGB. Available options included wire wheels, overdrive, AM radio, AM/FM radio, woodrim steering wheel and gearshift, electric clock, and air-conditioning (which was dealer installed). Offered here is an original MGB bearing a stock British Racing Green paint and matching wheels. With just over 52k miles on the odometer, this roadster is a classic British sports car. The exterior paint has been preserved excellently with only minor pitting on the rear bumper. The convertible top, when put up, appears to be brand new but we are unable to confirm at this time. This MGB is powered by an 1800cc 4-cylinder engine with 4-speed manual with overdrive. The chassis and undercarriage appear original and extremely solid proving that this vehicle is a pleasure to drive. The engine compartment is organized well and in tip-top shape. For the driver and any passengers, the black interior appears to be in good shape. The bucket seats are visibly lush and do not have any signs of wear. The dark carpeting on the other hand does have some ruffling and slight edging issues within the driver's foot well. The padded black dash has aged expertly and is offset by the chrome gauge bezels. Some may say that little British sports cars like this MGB can be quite picky when it comes to drivability, but every British car owner I have met has absolutely loved their car. If you are looking for an unrestored, original two-seat roadster, I couldn't think of a better vehicle than the one presented here. Please call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
