For Sale: 1979 MG MGB in Stratford, Connecticut


Vehicle Description

Just finished an extensive reconditioning...... Upon arrival: nice, clean example.....very good floors and body, older BRG paint, fairly new deep brownish tan interior, wood dashboard, wood steering wheel, strong desmogged engine, Weber carb improved manifolding, good top, Minilite wheels, unusually strong performance.....nice car. BUT, alas, typical of a 'rubber bumper car.' LOTS of strong points....improved dash with bigger gauges, servo assist disc brakes, front and rear sway bars, superior ride, thoroughly undercoated, comfortable, reliable, electronic ignition, electric radiator cooling fans, really the best of the MGB line of cars. BUT, those heavy and ugly front and rear bumpers, raised up on its suspension with negative effects on handling. Ugh. But not for long....... Now, finished a complete, professional chrome bumper conversion, lowered to early ride height, eliminated the less than attractive side lights. A lot of work but worth it. And on this car, really worth it as it has perfect working overdrive giving quiet, refined cruising and improved fuel economy. Perfect floors with no sign of rust or repair. AND....just converted the car to wire wheels with all new splined hubs, hardware, and new chrome knock offs. Now finished, in many ways, the best all around MGB. We painted the car in a darker BRG, did the engine bay, door jambs, under the hood and trunk, looks great. Has a stereo/CD, boot cover, trunk carpet, wood wheel, done and ready for delivery.
