$15,995

Vehicle Description

The MGB is a great affordable way to enjoy the open road, but if you're willing to pay a little extra, sometimes you get a whole lot more. This 1977 roadster is the perfect example. Under expert care for over three decades, this has received everything from a professional respray to performance upgrades. So read all the details carefully on classic MG that has been maintained and restored in all the ways you would done if it were yours.


Sandglow is a great 1970s color, and the included window sicker will show you that this droptop was born this way. But as you look over the gloss and luster, you can instantly tell there has been a nice investment in more modern paint. After all, a sunshine-friendly convertible should always look its best in the sunshine. And for those times when you're caught in less than ideal weather, the black folding roof fits snug and gives an almost two-tone appearance against the bumpers. The bodywork is done correctly, too, and you see it way the hood lines up nicely and the full-length trim runs the whole profile in an unbroken line. This machine was built to enjoy the open road, and so you get some great features like a color-matched removable hard top and the chrome trunk rack that's just begging for a picnic basket to be strapped to it. And of course, all British car fans love Minilite-style wheels.


Inside the upgrades continue. The factory-correct Autumn Leaf bucket seats were recovered over the years so that they still look and feel great. There is a great Burlwood package that now covers the dash, including the heat/defrost controls and upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. An MGB is always centered around the driving experience, and this one is enhanced thanks to a leather-wrapped Mountney steering wheel. The gearstick is still just a short reach away, and the full gauge package is still crystal clear. This is pure motoring enjoyment.


From the moment you open the hood, you can instantly tell there has been a solid investment in the engine bay. The 1800cc has not only been given the right care and maintenance over the years, but also there have been some subtle performance upgrades that make all the difference out on the road. This includes a decked & ported cylinder head, Pertronix distributor, APT V11 performance camshaft, Weber carburetor, and Jet Hot coated exhaust header. There's more to list, so call for all the details, but just know that these improvements add a solid performance upgrade that MGB people instantly will feel. Not only does the four-speed manual transmission help you get the most out of the motor, but also the electronic overdrive provides true all-around cruising ability. These are already terrific handling cars, but this one adds upgrades like a front sway bar, lowered suspension, and the modern grip of Yokohama Avia tires. So this is truly a superior MGB meant for the open road.


Complete with the original window sticker, maintenance records, and a restoration photo book, you get to follow this MG's journey over a well-cared for lifetime. It's time for you to write the next chapter. Call today!!!
