$17,900

Vehicle Description

Just finished............. Came in as a dowdy, sable brown, rubber bumper, single carbed, raised up on its suspension to meet bumper height DOT requirements, steel wheeled, original AM FM radio'ed.....MG. Nothing special. BUT....only 59,000 original miles, perfect compression and oil pressure, zero smoke, and a perfect rust free body and chassis. With original paint (hence, no bondo). A good candidate for a comprehensive reconditioning. Now......new DGV Weber carb, headers, front suspension disassembled, fitted with new bushings and lowered springs, rear ride height lowered, converted to wire wheels with new hubs and chrome knock offs, a complete professional chrome bumper conversion with all new bumpers, grille, sheet metal, lights, etc. Fitted with a new tan premium quality convertible top, new wood dashboard, new wood steering wheel, Sony stereo/CD with USB input, and......completely disassembed exterior, all new rubber seals and gaskets, painted in black along with the engine bay, door jambs, trunk, under the hood and trunk lid, and the result is breathtaking. A gorgeous classic MG sports car. Interior was excellent/original and needed nothing. As a late model MGB, has electronic ignition, front and rear sway bars, thermostatically controlled electric radiator fans, bigger gauges, nicer dash, better electical system, better trans and engine mounting, and a properly rust proofed floor pan. All in all, this car is really the best of the early and later Bs. Want more? We can add modern air conditioning, a 5 speed transmission, install a new tan leather interior, even chrome wire wheels. As it is OR with additional add-ons, this is a fabulous MG.
