Another of our wonderful 'hybrid' MGBs about to be finished. Just finished and ready to drive anywhere.
Rust free Southern car, finished in a beautiful deep red, all new custom made interior in tannish brown with red piping, new wood dash, leather steering wheel, modern stereo/CD, brand new (expensive) tan cloth top, new boot cover, interior is really excellent. And we think it is one of the nicest B interiors we have seen.
Engine recently rebuilt, our tests: 70-75 psi oil pressure when warm, zero smoke, compression was exactly 147 psi (as best as my gauge can read) in every cylinder. Absolutely perfect. Fitted with a 45 DCOE Weber carb, better manifolds, all new wire wheel hub adapters, a good set of center lock wire wheels, new chrome knock offs, wire wheels sandblasted, primered, and painted, near new 175/65 radials.
Lowered to pre 1974 1/2 ride height, front end carefully checked for any wear, brakes checked, AND (of course) a complete, professional chrome bumper conversion....new sheet metal, side lights eliminated, paint blended in at all four corners, new bumpers, guards, Mk I grille, exterior is now identical to the earliest (and best looking) MGBs.
As a later model car, has a power brake servo, better controls, the Weber gives improved performance, all in all, this is a sensational MGB and will be done very soon.
