For Sale: 1974 MG MGB in Concord, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

There are not many better ways to enjoy a warm day than taking a traditional British convertible sports car down a twisting country road. This 1974 MGB is a wonderful foray into a time when sports cars were pure, and the driving experience wasn't measured on a clock, but instead by the size of the grin on your face.

The MGB is one of those cars that everyone loves to see because they know it's built for pure pleasure. The compact proportions are ideally suited for carrying two passengers, and there's no extra fat to steal performance. The taut bodywork is now an icon that is pure retro cool. The same goes for the shade of orange that has that perfect '70s-style earth tone mixed right in with it. As you look over the pictures, you'll spot a nice extra that you don't get with many MGBs. The hardtop is the perfect addition for the times when you want a more coupe-like appearance. And no matter if you decide to run with this black hardtop or the black folding roof, they both give a nice two-tone effect next to the bumpers. The chrome trunk rack adds a bit of class and is something you'll find useful on your next weekend getaway.... And that's exactly what this machine is all about. A fun roadster that begs you to take the long way everywhere you go.

This is not the kind of cushy interior that comes from a turnpike cruiser, but if you've read this far, you already knew that. Instead, from the moment you sit in the nice black bucket seat, it feels like the entire inside envelops you like a second skin. The space between the three-spoke wheel and the stick shift is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. The driver gets a full set of Smiths gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer, as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water.

Power comes from a sprightly 1798cc four-cylinder motor. You'll enjoy how this one fires up with ease, and it even has been converted over to a Weber carburetor for an extra kick of power. With a sporty exhaust note and a willingness to rev, the engine lives up to its British roadster pedigree by offering a mighty experience in a small package. The sound of the powerplant, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling are some of this car's many virtues. There is a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to the iconic alloy wheels with disc brakes supporting the front set.

This MGB offers a pure driving experience in an unbeatable package. It's as easy to own and maintain as a VW Beetle, but runs in much faster circles. So when a roadster like this is also so affordable, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!
