MGB, 1970 CONVERTIBLE w/OVERDRIVE 1970 was a unique year for MGB's and the only year that they put split rear bumpers on them. This car is a fantastic example of a largely original car with a one time repaint in its original British Racing Green. The interior remains original with the exception of new carpets. The original padded dash remains perfect original. Mileage on the odometer reads just over 36,000 miles. We believe it to be original as the car absolutely drives out like it was only five years old. Aside from its overall superb condition, this car is very special as it the rare optional factory OVERDRIVE transmission. Recent top and still retains its original top boot and tonneau cover.
