Hey everyone,
I bought my MGB in 2015. In 2003 the previous owner had done a full body restoration, and most of the interior, but never got around to doing most of the mechanicals. I purchased it in 2015 and fully rebuilt the engine (machined .020 over) and swapped the trans for a factory overdrive (black label), among many other mechanical repairs. The engine now has about 1000 miles on it and runs great.

There is very little rust on this car - the PO did the full sill/ castle rail replacement on the passenger side, and the drivers side is original and solid. This is by far the most solid LBC I looked at when I was shopping for one.

Notes:
Rebuilt SU carbs (and chromed)
Minilite Wheels
Rebuilt Rear axle
Replaced all suspension bushings with poly
Replaced exhaust with chrome Monza
New clutch master
New Borgs & Beck clutch
New throw-out bearing (roller-style)
Added overdrive transmission and partially rebuilt overdrive unit
Full rebuild on engine
Newer top in good condition
Original tonneau cover in average condition
New dash cover (full dash, not just the top)
Has WORKING original AM/FM British Leyland Radio
Also has (mounted out of sight under dash) bluetooth/ usb sony headunit
Idles smooth at 650-700 RPM
All new fluids

I've got a lot of spare parts that can go with the car too (4-5 large totes, plus a windshield frame, rear end, and partial transmission.) I even have the OEM jack, and it works!

This is not a 100% original, mint-condition show car, and that is not what I ever wanted it to be, but it is a car that can be driven, enjoyed, entered into the occasional local car show, and you will get complimented by many passer-bys on the street. I would personally put it into the condition of "high-end driver".

Looking to sell so that I can move on to another project (always have to have something to keep me busy.) I only have a 1-car garage, so that means it's time to say goodbye to the MGB.

$9,750 8,500 and I'm located in NE Ohio. Message me if you want more pictures or have questions. Thanks for looking!

Aaron

77 MGB - Four tone paint -Pertronix - hood props - cheap tires - new springs all around - mixture of poly and rubber bushings- fuzzy seatcovers - stereo out of old F150 pickup -runs flawlessly and drives nice.

78 MGB - Done right by a good PO, and I only bought it. Tell Jim how nice it is. But I did put in a Datsun 5 speed.

53 TD Mark II - a work in progress.

79/65 MGB - Carmine- V-6 - T-5
This car is now very nearly completely done. Sure to find something else, but not now.........

Beautiful 1971 "B". I bought a 1971 in "74" put 100k+ on the car, it survived High School and four years of Technical College. This was my 1st MGB & I felt like $1,000,000 whenever I drove it. Sold it in 1980 with >150k on Speedo(?) bought it back in 1994. I only hope I can get it to 1/10th of your car.

I guess everyone is over the $10K plus MGB?

Good Luck with the Sale.

Just need the right buyer - if you look on Bring a trailer finished auctions, you will see several that sold for $10K plus.

Still for sale everyone! I've had several people take a look and the general consensus was that it is a very solid driver but not a perfect 10/10 show-car. I've got a little bit of flexibility on price if there is a serious buyer. Let me know if you want to take a look.

Is that horn push painted silver? I like that !

Nope! No silver - I tried to stay as original as I realistically could with everything - must just be the reflection from the lights in my garage.
