1973 MG BV6 Roadster (SOLD)
Click to enlarge
One of THE best ever....excellent body, beautiful deep Jaguar BRG paint, new tan leather interior, Chevy S10 V6 engine, four barrel Weber carb, and 5 speed transmission professionally installed.
We had our specialist dye the dash, dash top, and console to match the rest of the interior, adding a wood dash (if a new owner wishes), modern stereo, and can offer this car with either a new set of Minilite style alloy wheels or a complete wire wheel conversion. Just finished......a sensational, smooth, powerful, high geared MGB.
What is appealing about this conversion is the result is a smoother, more powerful car, high gearing from the easy shifting 5 speed transmission, YET, unlike a V8 conversion, lots of room for basic service in the engine bay and a wonderful balance.....a stock '73 B puts around around 92hp, this engine is over 130hp. Actually very close to the UK built 3.5 liter Rover V8 rated at 137hp. Not a drag racer, just a wonderful classic sports car with a later, more powerful, smoother drive train
Price reflects car, done, and with Minilites. With w/wheel conversion, add an additional $1,000.
