Description for MG MGB 1978

This car is for sale locally as well, on't wait to make an offer.......
VIN was not accepted by eBay likely due to the fact the car was manufactured prior to 1981. However, elow is a pic of the builders plate.
Selling a '78 MG MGB Mark IV with a low 42,616 miles. The car has origins in Canada and therefore the odometer and speedometer are in metric. I legally imported the car myself and can provide import paperwork upon request.
This MGB has had an extensive full frame-off restoration about 4,900 miles ago at a cost of about $19,000. I have the original owner's manual as well as receipts and other documents collected over the years. Also have the owner history and aside from 2 dealerships, his car seems to have had 4 prior owner's over its 37 years. Car drives like new. Video at bottom demonstrates the gears shift flawlessly and absolutely everything works (there are 3 video's spliced into one but for some reason there are significant gaps in between the video's. Just advance after each one to catch them all ).
An automotive survey was done last May or 262 miles prior, or insurance purposes and the following information was taken directly from that survey:

Comments: This is a very nicely restored MG "B" roadster that was treated to a full and complete restoration in the late 1980's and was completed to a high standard at that time. The car has traveled only 8k KM (4900 miles) since and no major wear was noted in any area. Overall a very nice and original example that presents near the top of its class.

I have received a few calls about whether or not I would deliver the MG. This is a possibility but I can only decide on a case by case basis. I do have truck and trailer and perhaps could deliver at about a $1.00 per mile (loaded only, he return is on me). I may be able to do less if the trip is greater then 500 miles. But again, lease contact me for more information on this.
