Now available in our Philly location is a 1975 MG MGB Roadster. There are only a handful of cars that can deliver this driving experience. Thirty years after the last Bs rolled out of MG's factory in Abingdon, there's room for a fresh perspective. Instead of knocking MG for falling behind the times, we might recognize the company for keeping the British sports car alive. These efforts were not in vain, as the later Bs sold respectably in the United States. There may have been faster and more modern cars on the market, but the rubber-bumper MGB offered the traditional thrills of a British roadster to a whole new generation. This one is in classic red with a black vinyl interior and convertible top. It has a four-speed transmission that delivers that true driving experience. In the mid 70's these cars were a popular choice with young America. They were known for their economical gas mileage and maintenance schedule and were a common sight on the road. With 48000 original miles, this little roadster has allot left in the tank and will give its new owners plenty of enjoyment.
