$14,900

Vehicle Description

Just finished this car for sale.....local owner had this car for 36 years, babied, garaged, zero rust, excellent body and perfect/rust free floor/chassis, recently resprayed in tartan red. Excellent mechanicals (145-150 psi compression in every cylinder, 60 psi oil pressure, zero smoke), near perfect original interior, oil cooler, new Minilite-type alloy wheels (we can convert this to wire wheels if a buyer prefers), new tires, all brake and hydraulic parts were replaced, very good convertible top, tonneau cover, all new chrome, Sony stereo/CD with USB input wood dashboard, wood steering wheel, quiet exhaust, shocks and front end in good condition, spotless trunk, excellent wiring and electrics, a nice, clean, original MGB. It had been sitting for a few years (the last owner suffered a stroke), we replaced the fuel pump and filter, cleaned the fuel lines, cleaned the carbs and voila! Strong, smooth, fabulously 'tight' sports car with contemporary performance and utter simplicity. Not a 'restored' car but, rather, an excellent original car, thoroughly gone through (by us) to rectify whatever might be wrong. Body was excellent, just slightly faded paint, and no bondo was used when we repainted car in base coat/clear coat acrylic. The 1972 Bs are nice with a better dash than earlier cars, face level air vents, glove box, and now rather elegant with the new wood dashboard and steering wheel.
