Just in from California.........NICE car....... New factory floors, no undercoating or patching. VERY nice. Runs very well, 670 psi oil pressure wen warm, no smoke hot or cold, free revving and powerful. Trans works well as does clutch, brakes, steering, and handling. Seems to have been recently repainted....very nice in deep BRG. Interior is (in my eye) really outstanding....new deep green carpets, very good tan seats and door panels, matching console cover and dash crash pad. And all wood dashboard....rather elegant. Even has its original BMC radio. Spin on oil filter, oil cooler, new windshield, new convertible top, boot cover, seat belts, wire wheels, wiring looks to be good original, very clean engine bay and trunk compartment, chrome appears to be new, all in all, a wonderful example of this 51 year old collector's car. I love 'em. Have a 1964 and 1965 pull handle B in my own collection and they seem to get used more than any other car I own. Contemporary performance with a 105 mph top speed and easy cruising at 80-90 mph, very good ride (and no rattles), precise steering, disc brakes, roomy/comfortable interior, and a high degree of versatility. Add a dual master cylinder, removable roll bar, and fuel cell and go historic racing. Heaters work sufficiently well for all but the coldest climates, and whether the proverbial back road or a distant drive, a classic MGB makes a dandy car to own. We can supply a hardtop, offer an overdrive transmission or a modern 5 speed, these really made the ideal compromise. And this California car with new factory floors is one of the nicest we have ever seen.
This 1963 model was in storage for 35 years, but has been nicely restored and driven only 51,000 miles since new
By the mid-1970s, the MGB was getting long in the tooth. The sports car had grown heavier due to DOT crash regulations.

I owned two MGBs long ago — a spanking new ’78 and an old ’73 — but both were gone from me by the year 1985.
The classic MGB has always been an attractive and affordable choice for sports-car fans, but with one complaint: it could use more power.
When the talk turns to affordable classic sports cars, the first one considered is often the MGB, Britain’s most-successful roadster.
Extremely popular in its day, the MGB of Great Britain has never had great value as a collector car.
MG is the moniker for “Morris Garages” of Oxford, England, which began in 1924 or 1925 at a dealer of Morris brand vehicles.
