Lots of OHV 1600’s but the OHC 2000’s are few and far between.

DID One 2000 "Fairlady" The customer pulled the head to do a valve job. The machine shop milled it down a bit. Bent three valves on the first "TRY TO START" confused smileyhot smiley

I've actually had a 2000 and now have a 1600 (don't worry...had an MGB GT too). From 1968 to 1970, they actually produced slightly more 2000s than the 1600s. I'd be interested in this one if I didn't already have one. This one looks like a 1968.

If it was a 1968, I think it would have side marker lights.

68 didn't have side markers. 69 had a tear drop marker on front fenders and a small round one on the rear. 70s had rectangular markers front and rear.

It’s a 68. Lived in panhandle of Florida for decades until just recently, now in TX.

There were two versions. Hitachi (SU clones) and Mikuni (Weber/Solex clones) Different class in SCCA at the time, different road power. Which is this one?

Too bad you aren’t on the wrong side of the country and in the market for an MGB V-8.

Nice looking ride.

Interesting article about the MGB vs the Datsun Fairlady (1600-2000 in the US) in Dec issue of Safety Fast.
I drove a Datsun 1600 or 2000 back in the 70's but don't remember much about it except it was very similar to the MGB.
Back then cars were something I drove and traded every few months for something different.

I am no expert on these cars, but this seems like a very good price for a 2000. Is the interior red?

If it does not sell here, I would consider BAT, but you may have to take a few more pictures...

SU’s Baby ! The car was purchased new by my friends father-in-law. He passed so it’s just sitting unused, 40K original.

I can see that the valve cover has been repaired.
At some point, the timing chain tried to free itself from the engine! When the upper timing chain tensioner starts to fail, there is a noise known as the death rattle. This means it's time to replace the chain, gears, and tensioners before major damage occurs.
