1978 MG MGB V6 Conversion "New Baby"
Good Morning Folks.
Some of your guys know me and some of you may not. I have been on this site for several years with two MG's. I have decided to sell my 1978 MGB V6 conversion roadster. I have been spending a lot more time travelling out of the country and this sweet car is getting driven less and less. I have been unable to even do a car show these past 12 months, but going to Orlando/Mead Gardens show on April 1st. I will begin posting some photos ASAP and be listing some of the many many restorations that have been performed on this car. I did a ground up, total rebuild, that took me 4 1/2 years. Someone is going to get a nice car and a sweet deal.
Thanks for viewing my post and thanks for all the great help and information that you all have provided me during my restoration.

Dave, that's why I listed mine at 30g, sort of a way to talk myself out of it-but........

You guys are breaking my heart. I have been detailing the car all day, and I just realised how much work I put into it in 4 1/2 years. The engine and tranny was nothing compared to a ground up restoration on all the other systems. I spent more time on the dash than under the hood. LOL

Pre-registered for Mead Gardens. Spent the whole day detailing.

First time I saw my convertible top in three years. I never drove it in the rain unless I got caught. I used two boxes of Dynamat for insulation and sound proofing. Nice deluxe tu tone surround. Engine compartment yesterday

David, it is a really nice B, I don't think you will ever have a B as nice as the one you have.

I know what you mean when you said it just seats. That has been my dilemma for many years with my 1962 MK ll Jaguar.

I drove that car about 100 miles last year and none this year. Hard decision. I have own the Jag for over 30 years. I may sell it this year along with other cars, I think?

Was "Grace, Space and Pace" not the official Jaguar motto? Regardless if it is or not, that picture shouts that message. Beautiful car in all respects.

I'll talk you out of selling.
You won't get 20k
And what you do get after dropping the price is a heartache.

Dave,

What is your plans for the other two cars you have that your selling this one if it's okay for me to ask? Some just like to build and start over- no wrong answers. smiling smiley
