Another of our wonderful 'conversions.' Started with a near perfect MGB, 51,000 validated miles since new (around 1,400 miles a year since new). Rust free, excellent body and incredibly well preserved original black paint, new clutch at 40,000 miles, three careful loving owners, new top, great starting point.
Our work: 32 DGV Weber carb with improved exhaust manifold, complete, professional chrome bumper conversion, new chrome bumpers, guards, Mk I grille, new lights and sheet metal, wire wheels with all new splined hubs, new chrome knock offs, wood dash, leather steering wheel, Alpine stereo, full tonneau, by eliminating the side lights gives the same exterior 'look' as the earliest (and best looking) MGBs. BUT, as a late model B, such refinements as servo brakes, front and rear sway bars, bigger gauges, smoother transmission and engine, electronic ignition, thermostatically controlled radiator fans, alternator, dual circuit brakes, in every way, a superior sports car.
Simple, reliable, easy to service, contemporary use and performance and we can even install modern (and effective) air conditioning. Really the best of the early and late model MGBs.
AND...we can 'customize' this car to a buyer's preferences. Want high back/head rest seats? Remove the side stripes? We can finish this car as a new owner may wish.
Overall, one of the absolute best MGBs we have ever had, so well preserved, so low mileage, and so fantastic condition.
This 1963 model was in storage for 35 years, but has been nicely restored and driven only 51,000 miles since new

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.
