OEM MGB Workshop Manual for sale. Printed in 1972.

Cover is a bit dirty, but 99% of pages are pristine.

Appears to be original, and fully intact (not a copy).

It's currently listed on eBay (as of Feb 12, 2019), but will kill the listing if someone on here wants it.

Can ship anywhere.

Cheers!

Dave

PS - I'm not an MG guy - just discovered this in my basement left by a friend who is no longer with us. Hopefully someone can use it.

And what is the reasonable price you are asking for something a friend left in your basement?

Found the eBay listing. ( so the rest of you won't have to search yourselves smiling smiley ) Buy it now for US$150, or bidding starts at US$100, shipping from Lynden, Washington.

They routinely sell for about $35.00 on Ebay, that is what I paid for my 1970 edition, I would like the 72, but not at his ask..

Saw one on Kijiji that was for sale, pick up only 10.00 looked brand new. Too far for me to go, but 100. Is way too much.

Hi Guys

I'm in BC, I'm not an MG guy, and figured about 1/3 of what GM manuals seem to go for ($300+, but far more comprehensive, of course).

I was trying to do you guys a favour - not knowing if anyone wanted / needed it.

BUT...

To be blunt, I have to pack this thing up, drive it 40 miles down to Washington and mail it.

I've lowered the start price on eBay to $50 / $75 - plus shipping - but If I can't get at least that much, it's just not worth all the hassle, and I'll just bin it.

FYI - ebay won't allow me to list on ebay.com with a Canadian ship-from address, and their shipping calculator isn't even close to the true cost to mail it from here.

*** If there's enough interest, I can spend some time (not now - way too busy), scan it, and put it on ebay as a downloadable file for ~$25.

Thoughts?

If that's a good idea, I'll pull the listing and re-list it as a pdf when I have some spare time. It wouldn't be until sometime next month though.

I f you want to sell it, I’d take Keith’s $40 offer above. That’s more than fair.
The market is saturated, and the PDF idea isn’t flying as the contents of it are already available for free on the internet...

I will give you 40cdn, plus 20 for mailing to Ontario. Best I can do.
