For Sale: 1969 MG MGB in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1969 MG B Roadster Mk II - Same Owner For 50 Years - 1.8L 4 Cylinder - 4 Speed Manual Transmission - Green Over Black Interior - 94k Miles Shown - Recent Maintenance Garage Kept Motors is pleased to offer this 1969 MG B Roadster. This is a solid vintage sports car, priced reasonably that is ready to hit the road in search of great driving adventures. MGB's have a reputation for outstanding handling and spirited acceleration, making these roadsters a favorite for entry level weekend racers. This car has been under the same ownership for 50 years. The odometer currently shows 94,000, and recent maintenance to a few important areas means that this car is ready to log some more miles with a new owner. This MGB has a solid body and looks sharp with green paint and black interior. The finish has a number of scratches and blemishes typical of an older paint job, however as the photos indicate, the finish presents with a nice luster. The bumpers have some small dents and light patina but still shine brightly. The black convertible top and frame are included but have not been installed in some time, as this car has been a fair-weather cruiser only being driven on nice, clear days. Inside, the black trimmed interior appears to be in mostly original condition. The traditional black leather seats are gently worn in with subtle wrinkles, yet are soft and comfortable with no rips or tears. Door panels and rear panels look to be original, and show light wear, and mild sun damage. As to be expected in a convertible, the carpet is showing typical sun fade and wear. The dash pad and dash vinyl are clean and free of any cracks or tears. The original-style MG floor mats are still present, and a roll bar has been installed in preparation for a potential track day. A Nardi wood rim steering wheel has been installed. (Note: the original plastic rim steering wheel is included in the sale.) The dash is factory equipped with a full set of Smiths gauges including tachometer, oil pressure, temperature, voltmeter to monitor the engine vitals. The British Motor Company AM radio is still present in the dash. The trunk compartment is clean with some light surface oxidation, and the factory tool kit is included along with a spare tire mounted on a correct wire wheel. Under the bonnet is unrestored, yet it is clear that this area of the car has been well cared for. The 1.8 litre four cylinder is factory rated at 92hp at 5400rpms and 110 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm. The factory cast iron exhaust manifold has been upgraded to a long tube header which features larger pipes going into a performance muffler. The power is transferred through a 4-speed manual transmission to the straight axle mounted rear differential. The undercarriage is unrestored, and the floorboards are solid with some light oxidation. The factory knock off true-wire wheels are wrapped in Kumho Power Star 758 radial tires. These tires are designed specifically for classic imports like the MGB to provide classic looks, but modern performance. This MG is a great little driver, and its gently worn edges give this spirited little British sports car some attractive character. These MGB's have a long-standing history as fun to drive cars and this car wants to hit the curvy back roads and run through the gears. Please feel free to reach out by phone or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for looking.
