The last owner spent a fortune on this car. And the result is a wonderful, very usable, easy to service classic sports car.
This car goes! Much quicker than the 'average' MGB. Maybe some engine modifications, maybe the Weber. Dunno. But it does go well.
Great with the overdrive...clicks in and out instantly (the gearbox was done by a friend of our's who has a national reputation for doing these units) and makes the car very nice on the highway.
Ready for daily driving or show (but PLEASE do not assume this car is a serious show winning 'trailer queen'). As nice an MGB as I have ever come across and particularly nice with the chrome wire wheels, overdrive, driving lights, stereo, etc. In fact, adding the overdrive, Weber, chrome wire wheels, driving lights...this car has thousands and thousands of dollars of options.
Also available with a restored factory hardtop (rare and very desirable), and we can even offer a 'price' with a fresh 2 liter engine (alloy head, high lift cam, balanced, etc.) and a new Ford T9 five speed transmission.
In all of the years we have been in business, I would say this is the second best MGB we have ever had..the other one sold for $25,000 without overdrive. Although not meant to be a serious show car, it is certainly quite 'showable' and as a road MGB, the best I have ever seen. Done for my own collection but, due to a slight change of priorities, offered for sale so some lucky prospective MGB buyer.
At this price, very difficult to duplicate.
Oh, this is MY own car....luv it, put a lot of time, effort, and expensive to 'build' a dead reliable, show quality, quick, wonderful MGB. But, alas, we finished a fantastic MGA for my collection and I had a great time driving it all season. Recently, I thought 'when am I gonna drive this car now that I have finished it?' WHICH (I wonder) Lotus Elan, Healey, Morgan, MG in my collection will NOT be driven the day I drive this MGB? So.........its for sale. And a sensational car it is. I know. I paid for it!
