For Sale: 1978 MG MGB in Stratford, Connecticut


Vehicle Description

A beautiful example, just finished extensive prep work. Rebuilt engine, high compression pistons, all new valves and guides, balanced, new 32/36 DGV Weber carb, racing headers, excellent power and perfect running. 4 speed transmission with overdrive......5th gear. Just finished a complete professional chrome bumper conversion, new chrome, grille, brackets, sheet metal, lights, hardware. And by eliminating the side lights, the exterior is identical to the earliest and best looking MGBs. Lowered to pre 1975 ride height, wire wheel conversion with new wheel splines, new chrome knock offs, the result is a gorgeous car. Interior has custom recovered brownish leather seats, new matching carpets, interior panels, new expensive cloth top, wood dashboard, wood steering wheel, stereo/CD, boot cover, AND new deep green GN29 acrylic paint over a perfect rust free body (which had original damage, no bondo, no repairs). Excellent rust free floors, sills, chassis, painted and detailed engine and trunk compartments, AND all of the virtues of the later model MGBs......power assist disc brakes, front and rear sway bars, electronic ignition, thermostatically controlled electric radiator cooling fan , bigger gauges, smoother engine, stronger transmission and overdrive, better wiring and electricals, a superior car in every way. AND........we can also offer modern air conditioning and a powerful supplemental heater offering the comfort of a modern car. All of which can allow this car to be used as an alternative to a contemporary sports car....because, in a 65 mph society, all of the multi cam engines and six speed transmissions really can mean.....a bigger and nastier ticket! This car has covered 61,000 miles, very few since the engine was rebuilt (alas, the last owner died) a mere 1,500 miles a year since new. Cared for by its last owner, this beautiful MGB offers a lot of fun, low insurance rates, contemporary use and performance, and very easy maintenance.
