Year: 1978

MG B roadster


Stock # NE-1978-25

Depending on what one wants and expects from a classic sports car.........this one could very well be the best MGB we have for sale.

An excellent body with show quality paint, an excellent chassis/floors/sills with all factory undercoating. Rebuilt engine, electronic ignition, new Weber carb, tubular headers (nicely heat wrapped), excellent transmission with overdrive (clicks in and out quickly), rebuilt front end, power assist disc brakes, wire wheels with new Michelin radials, lowered to pre 1975 ride height.

A complete, professional chrome bumper conversion even eliminating side lights such that the exterior mirrors the earliest and most attractive MGBs. BUT with a far better cooling system with larger radiator and thermostatically controlled cooling fans, alternator and superior electrical system, front and rear sway bars, even improvements such as two speed heater blower and triple wipers.

Even better............a modern air conditioning system with a rotary compressor that takes very little power from the engine. And this system also includes a powerful auxiliary heater so this very special MGB is ready both hot and cold weather.

New convertible top, excellent interior, new tonneau, new wood steering wheel and dashboard, carpeted trunk, modern stereo/CD with USB input, racing battery switch.........and the result of all of this is a stylish 40+ year old classic that can be used as a reasonable alternative to a contemporary sports car. Plentiful supply of new and used parts, generally very easy servicing (and remember, new fuel pump, electronic ignition, new Weber carb, improved radiator and cooling system, superior electricals system).........easy cruising at any practical speed, great steering and handling, sure braking, quick steering, soft ride, all in all, a wonderful compromise.
