A very well kept 1979 (late model) MGB, 79,000 original miles (around 2,000 miles per year), 5,000 miles on rebuilt engine, new Weber carb, tubular headers, all new improved and uprated suspension bushings, new shocks at all four corners, new radials on new chrome wire wheels (over $300 each), brand new top, all new interior (seats, carpets, door panels), wood dash, modern stereo, wood steering wheel, full tonneau cover, on and on and on.
And drives like new....smooth, amply powerful with the performance updates, 70 psi oil pressure when warm, zero smoke, everything works, perfect wiring harness, absolutely zero rust.....floors, trunk floor, sills, rockers, all excellent. As is the beautiful red paint. Not a dent, not a crack, not even a chip.
Work we just finished: a complete professional chrome bumper conversion, new sheet metal, lights, chrome, eliminated the garish side lights, new trim, lowered to the proper pre 1975 ride height...........now done, and with all of the virtues of the early MGBs with all of the (many) virtues of the last ones: power disc brakes, front and rear sway bars, larger radiator and improved cooling system,. electronic ignition, bigger gauges, clock, stronger gearbox and back axles, better controls, more powerful heater, better electrical system. Most of the weak points of the early cars greatly improved.
This is a sensational classic sports car that can be used as a reasonable alternative to a contemporary car. And we can offer, as options, a powerful auxiliary heater (for cold climates) or a/c (for hot climates. And to blend the two, the a/c units we have made for us incorporate a powerful heater).
Luggage rack? Hardtop? 5 speed conversion? ANYTHING....we can handle. And if interested, please call.Printer-Friendly version
