“Little Blue”
Found "Little Blue" while day dreaming on craigslist in early January. She was only 25 miles up the road from me so I thought what the heck, I was sure the description wouldn't be accurate anyway. Needless to say was I surprised when the previous owner pulled the cover back on her. After a test drive, I had to have her. The PO runs a body shop and it really shows in the job he has done on the car. Every thing works except the radio.
"Little Blue" has had a rebuild at some time and is definitely not stock. She maintains a nice "lope" at idle that sounds different from stock models I have heard. Oil pressure stays a steady 75-80. The twin carbs have been tuned to perfection and the car runs great. The 4 speed shifts smoothly with no transmission whines.
The only mod I can think of now is maybe a radio and overdrive. Oh yeah, perhaps a strap on luggage rack. No drilling on this boot lid.
Needless to say I am thankful that the previous owner makes a hobby of rebuilding old MGBs and then selling them to new guys like me that have never owned one before. His work and dedication to the MG is greatly appreciated.
