Just in.........40,000 original miles since new, excellent mechanical condition, mostly new brakes, new Weber carb on aluminum manifold with tubular racing style headers, all of the 'improvements' of later MGBs: electronic ignition, thermostatically controlled electric radiator fans, front ans rear sway bars, bigger gauges, better wiring, more efficient heater, bigger radiator, and so much more.
In this car's case, new Bosch alternator, new Le Carrera leather steering wheel, new stereo, wood dashboard, new carpets, new tan top, boot cover, luggage rack, and an expensive set of new chrome wire wheels (okay, bolt ons but they look great and will probably never have problems with loose spokes).
Just think, a (for the USA) 'modern' classic.....an MGB with a capable cooling system, modern ignition system, power disc brakes, gauges that always work, all wrapped up in a timeless classic sports car shape. Offering great 'classic' handling, easy cruising at 70-80 mph (isn't a speed over 100 mph a bit academic?)......what amounts to 'contemporary use.'
Currently going through our normal 'improvement' process: a thorough professional chrome bumper conversion using a Mk I grille, elimination of side lights, lowering to pre 1975 ride height with the inclusion of new springs and bushings, when done, the only external look of a late model B will be the triple wipers.
And that's it. A beautiful MGB, soon to be done. Red with Camel interior, tan top, chrome wire wheels.Click for legal info
