Excellent rust free body/floors/chassis, very good black paint. 55,000 actual verified miles since new.. Just had $7,000+ worth of work....complete engine rebuilt, transmission services, brakes redone, new hubs, on and on. And now....a gorgeous MGB,
Our tests: 170-180 psi compression in every cylinder, no smoke cold or hot, 60+ psi oil pressure when warm. Al 'factory perfect.' And indicating high compression pistons for more power and torque.
All new tan interior, new top, new wood dashboard, carpeted trunk with spare wheel cover, stereo/CD, wire wheels with new hubs,wheel bearings, and new chrome knock offs, wood steering wheel, oil cooler with new Aeroquip line and pressure fittings and thermostatic control, twin SUs, AND..........has perfect working overdrive. With a new o'drive solenoid.
Really hard to beat a Spring/Summer/Fall car such as this.....105mph top speed, easy cruising (especially with overdrive) at 80-90 mph, economical, great handling, ride, steering, shifting, and easy to service and maintain. And still with the capacity for all year 'round use.....heaters are adequate, tops fit well and we have plenty of hardtops we can offer for any of the MGBs we have for sale.
We have checked over this car, pads and shows look good, all fluids changed or topped up, front end is tight, wiring looks good, has an expensive Mallory coil and dual point distributor, interior light works, and it runs and drives very well.
And ready for 'round town, daily use, country roads, or longer distance touring.

While claiming to never […]
During this time spent indoors during shelter in place, I have been able to continue work on the MGB GT restoration. The latest project has been tackling the gearbox. For a bit of history: The 3-syncro overdrive-equipped gearbox in this car is the one in it when the car was delivered. The gearbox was rebuilt […]
While many people are feeling frustrated about the number of event cancellations, I’m looking at this change in scheduling another way: I have much more time to work on the MGB GT restoration at The Paddock. My next task for the MG is to reseal the engine. Since I already knew that John Twist, the […]
Editor’s note: The first sports car driven by our East Coast editor, Andy Reid, was an MGB, back when he was just 14 years old. But it wasn’t until 2019 that he actually owned such a car, a 1967 MGB GT. He began to restore the car, hoping to be done in time to drive […]
The Pick of the Day is a proper entry into British sports car madness
But he’s learned a lot more about the car and plans to drive it this fall to Hilton Head
Getting the crud off the drivetrain and peering into the gearbox
The Pick of the Day could be a collector’s daily driver
But there’s good news as well, the discovering of the car’s original paint shade
