Just in.............was 'sleeping for eleven years but now awaken.
140 psi compression in every cylinder, 70 psi oil pressure, zero smoke, excellent running. Transmission and clutch work well. Same with brakes and clutch hydraulics. We replaced the radiator, changed fluids, and fiddled with electrics.'
BEST OF ALL..........essentially near perfect body with very very good paint (blemishes only visible when viewed very closely). Floors are literally 'as new' with no sign of rust or perforation. No undercoating to hide rust, just fantastic.
Wood dashboard, original working radio, very very good original seats and original panels and carpets, a fairly new top, good tonneau, original chrome is very good, and we just converted this car to wire whiles with new hubs, hardware, new chrome knock offs, sandblasted and painted wheels, and new tubes and radials. Looks great/
Wiring looks to be very good, has an oil cooler, spin on oil filter, twin SU carbs,. We found the rear ride was a bit low and just installed new springs, bushings, and hardware. Certainly seems ready to drive anywhere.
After wet sanding and buffing, the paint came up and the overall effect is a very good looking MGB. We can add (if wanted by a potential buyer), a powerful supplemental heater, air conditioning, switch to chrome wire wheels, fit a new Weber carb, even a modern 5 speed transmission.
Incredibly well preserved, really needs nothing.
