Stock # NE-1978-33

A beautiful example we sold to a local fellow, maybe a year and a half ago. First weekend, he drove to is father's in South Carolina. And back. Perfect. Then for the past year, here and there, excellent performance, excellent reliability, and as the photos show.....gorgeous.

Alas, as a US Marshall, he was recently injured in training and the prospects of driving a manual transmission car in the near future isn't in the cards. Hence its sale. With his last words as the car was being dropped off....'I Love this car!!!!!'

So, now for sale.

Excellent body and paint, the product of a complete chrome bumper conversion, new Mk I grille, new bumpers, brackets, lights, sheet metal, wiring, etc. And then lowered to pre 1975 ride height. Floors, inner sills and rockers are all excellent with no visible rust perforation. Fitted with improved manifolds, tubular headers, Weber 32/36 DGV carb, new Minilite wheels with new high speed 175/70 radials,, new convertible top, and full tonneau cover, And complete dashboard is original and not cracked....more than likely indicating this car was garaged most of its life.

In the interior, dash and console disassembled and dyed to match the tan interior, new wood burled dash, new premium wood steering wheel, modern digital stereo with bluetooth, new carpets and interior panels, like the exterior, gorgeous.

These later cars, while suffering from three tiny deficiencies (ugly, gutless, and ill handling/ungainly) were really the best MGBs sold in the USA. With virtues such as front and rear sway bars, larger radiator with electric cooling fans, servo assist for the disc brakes, better dashboard with bigger gauges, stronger gearbox and back axle, far better rust proofing, all in all, a better car.

We have gone through the brakes, disassembled and rebuilt the front suspension, AND BEST OF ALL< our customer spent a year of 'testing' and found the car to perform wonderfully. And now...time for a new owner.
