1968 MGB GT - The Price is $6500 OBO. Restored (yes, actually) as a daily driver in the late 1980s. Engine rebuilt, swapped out Tranny to MG electric OD unit, all brake, driveline, suspension, electrical and accessory components either rebuilt, refurbished, or replaced with new or modification equipment. Bodywork repaired with new panels - all rust outs corrected and treated for longevity, new and better components and materials used to replace panels, new seals and sealants than OE. Interior gutted, all new (89) interior upholstery with later model front seats all in marine grade cloth and vinyl. As front seats wore, I chose to install Cal Trend seat covers and drivers seat padding a couple of years ago as a temporary measure until new upholstery could be done. New replacement dashboard/console skins, switches, etc and corrections of Previous Owner (PO) errors or bodges. Electrical system upgraded to a more modern Bosch Alternator and additions of electric cooling fan, relays for lights, fans, heater, etc (all easily reversible if originality desired), wiper delay, additional fuse panels. All electrical is sound and works as it should. This car has been desmogged and reverted back to early HS-4 SUs, an Advance Distributors correctly curved Lucas distributor, NGK plugs, K&N air filters. 24-32 MPG. Cast rims, 185/65x14 tires. Newer replacement Triplex windshield and gasket. As can be expected, this car did not stagnate with only restoration, but has been constantly repaired, modified, and cared for to serve as a daily driver since 1989. Logs, manuals, documentation of changes, etc. etc, plus many spare parts also come with this car.
