Attached are pictures of Hilary’s 1980 MGB

5500.00

Below is a comprehensive list of what comes with, what needs to be done and what I have done to the roadster over the past few years. Having put approximately 3000 miles in the last 4 years, I am familiar with the car and had formulated a “want to” list of planned improvements. However after moving to Seattle, my wife’s decision that she wants to remodel the kitchen, the hours I am working on the aircraft and because I want an “A” to tinker with in the future we have decided to sell the 80.



Parts that come with the car

1)clutch slave cylinder rebuild kit (had to put fluid in it after delivery here, want to be safe)
2)clutch master cylinder rebuild kit
3)engine gaskets, complete set (leaks oil, does not burn oil)
4)rear end thrush washers (light clunk)
5)under-hood insulation (2 pc)
6)motor mounts
7)transmission mount

Work I have done
1)replaced rear springs
2)replaced front springs
3)replaced suspension bushings (front and rear)
4)new muffler
5)replaced brake pads (front and rear)
6)replaced brake caliper (left front)
7)new stainless steel brake lines (front and rear “flexible”)
8)replaced rear brake cylinders
9)replaced rear-end axle bearings & all seals
10)replaced emergency brake cable
11)replaced drive shaft u-joints
12)added luggage rack (flat bar)
13)lined trunk with gray felt
14)replaced fuel pump & flexible lines
15)new oil cooler (installed but not connected, needs lines & adapter)
16)fabricated oil cooler ducting
17)fabricated radiator ducting
18)rebuilt distributor
19)rebuilt carburetor (ZS)
20)replaced plugs & plug wires (8mm silicone)
21)replaced electric fans (radiator)
22)replaced center arm rest & latch
23)new cockpit rear trim
24)rebuilt drivers seat (straps & cushions, kept original coverings)
25)new floor pads
26)removed, cleaned & repaired where required, all upholstery
27)cleaned cockpit inside, coated rusty areas(surface type) with naval jelly
28)replaced courtesy light
29)cleaned & lubed window tracts
30)cleaned & lubed door latches
31)cleaned & lubed hinges
32)new battery and cables
33)cleaned & lubed seat tracts
34)new turn signal switch
35)new ignition switch
36)cleaned & shined bumpers
37)new thermostatic fan control (sensor is in radiator not thru fins)
38)fabricated trunk prop reinforcement
39)blanked fuel pump penetration into trunk (new fuel pump)
40)cup holders
41)new tan cloth top (always stowed, only put it up a few times)
42)replaced top fasteners
43)sandblasted and painted top frame
44)new tires
45)replaced rostyle with 15" wire wheels (165r15 86s tires)
46)rebuilt the rack, new tie rod ends

Want to do’s
1)remove catalytic converter and replace with a straight thru pipe
2)replace engine gaskets (runs fine, does not burn oil but leaks)
3)hook up oil cooler
4)repair crack in dash (right side, next to glove box)
5)fix clock time set knob (clock keeps good time, only way to set it is to disconnect battery and wait until the clock is correct then connect battery, I’ve done that three times)

the 80 runs and drives very well, odometer shows 108,000, spedo is good, everything works. smog equip removed by PO, shocks are good no leaks. lowered the car 1", looked better with the wires. all the locks work , all keys are there. I was rebuilding one area at a time. it is a good ,reliable car. you would enjoy it
