1967 MG B race car
Click to enlarge
A wonderful entry level historic race car........current, a bit of a project.
A 1967 (best year for MGBs) ex E Production racer, raced for many years on the West Coast and then in Colorado as a historic racer. Comes with racing log book (showing races all over the West and even East at Sebring), also a road title. Allowing this car to be prepared as a true dual purpose road and race car.
Body and floors are excellent, no damage, no rust repairs. Even has the somewhat rare alloy bonnet. And the paint is more than presentable for a race car. Has competition springs and sway bar, Minilite alloy wheels, oil cooler with Aerioquip lines, ATL fuel cell, racing seat, roll bar configured for a tall driver, Sun tach, Mountney steering wheel, cut down racing screen, primary need: engine and transmission.
But then again, isn't it taking a chance on buying a used race car with an unknown engine? This way, the new owner can know exactly what he has as he rolls it on the track.
We have a number of freshly rebuilt early 5 main bearing engines (all with standard cranks and bores) with pre smogger heads in stock. With some mild porting, milling to raise compression ratio (and these early engines had higher compression right from the factory), a high lift cam....and ready to go. All in all, an enthusiast can use this car as an excellent starting point OR contract us to do the prep work.
With such possible additions and options as a close ratio 5 speed transmission, four piston front racing calipers, rear Panhard rod, negative camber front lower control arms, many engine upgrades, etc.
Regardless of how it is 'finished,' a remarkably inexpensive way of getting into this fun sport and having a lovely racer.
