If any interest, I'll provide detailed photos of what you're starting with, which is the above, in storage since the mid-80s...and needing restoration.

Factory 4 synchro overdrive car, originally mineral blue. Currently yellow with fibreglass front fenders.

This car is structurally solid in the right places.
Needs floors, sills, heelboard extensions, lower rr quarters, left front steel fender.

These were delivered to the Canadian market during the first months of 68 production, after the US cars received the padded dash and emission controls. Some view these as the best possible rendition of the MGB. This one has a ton of potential...rare mineral blue, factory overdrive-original engine turns over smoothly...and wire wheels, and a straight starting point.

Price is $3500US firm. Have ownership, and importing to the US should be straightforward.

Will come with used original steel front fender, (right) needing lower repair section, correct early seat frames, correct banjo steering wheel, an original front valance needing minor dent removal, good left door, good trunk lid.

Mineral blue photo is what it could look like...

I picked up a spool of wire and a tank of gas for the Mig welder, have the parts list sitting on my desk....and a bolt on wheel parts car sitting beside it, but my body is saying no, no, NO!!!
The clutch works, king pins are good...one could be driving this in the spring...

Well.....????

How often do you see one of these...never mind for sale, and a straight forward viable project...it's waiting for you..great for creating arguments at car shows, as 98/100 MGB experts won't believe it isn't a conversion...

Steel dash with a 4 synchro gearbox and only 2 wipers. The best of the best!

Yes indeed. A very unusual variant of North American Bs, and this one has factory overdrive also.
