Another of our wonderful 'hybrid' MGBs about to be finished. Photos show car fairly close to be finished, minus bumpers, painted over side lights, minor items........
Rust free Southern car, finished in a beautiful deep red, all new interior in tannish brown with red piping, new wood dash, leather steering wheel, modern stereo/CD, brand new (expensive) tan cloth top, new boot cover, interior is really excellent.
Engine recently rebuilt, our tests: 70-75 psi oil pressure when warm, zero smoke, compression was exactly 147 psi (as best as my gauge can read) in every cylinder. Absolutely perfect. Fitted with a 45 DCOE Weber carb, better manifolds, all new wire wheel hub adapters, a good set of center lock wire wheels, new chrome knock offs, wire wheels sandblasted, primered, and painted, near new 175/65 radials.
Lowered to pre 1974 1/2 ride height, front end carefully checked for any wear, brakes checked, AND (of course) a complete, professional chrome bumper conversion....new sheet metal, side lights eliminated, paint blended in at all four corners, new bumpers, guards, Mk I grille, exterior is now identical to the earliest (and best looking) MGBs.
As a later model car, has a power brake servo, better controls, the Weber gives improved performance, all in all, this is a sensational MGB and will be done very soon.
