Description for MG MGB 1974

THIS MAY BE ONE OF THE NICEST MGB's ON THE HIGHWAY TODAY. IT IS ONE OF THE LAST ONES MADE WITH THE CHROME BUMPERS, ATHER THAN THE RUBBER BUMPER VERSION WHICH CAME OUT IN MID 1974. THIS MG HAS BEEN WELL CARED FOR BY PREVIOUS OWNERS AND THE IMPROVEMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE IN RECENT YEARS HAVE TOTALED MORE THAN TWICE THE ASKING PRICE. IT STARTS EASILY, UNS GREAT AND YOU CAN DRIVE IT ANYWHERE. LOTS OF MODIFICATIONS AND ADDITIONS TO MAKE THIS A VERY COMFORTABLE, UN AND RELIABLE MG. HERE ARE SOME OF THE UPGRADES: VERY COLD AIR CONDITIONING. GREAT FOR SUMMER DRIVING WITH THE TOP DOWN, IND IN THE HAIR AND COLD AIR ON THE BODY; NISSAN 5-SPEED TRANSMISSION THAT SAVES GAS ON LONGER TRIPS AND SHIFTS WITH A VERY POSITIVE FEEL. ALUMINUM FINNED VALVE COVER THAT HOUSES A ROLLER ROCKER THAT IS DRIVEN BY A LITTLE HOTTER STREET CAM WHICH GIVES BETTER ACCELERATION. FUEL IS SUPPLIED BY A 2-BARREL WEBER CARBURETOR AND THE HEADER AND EXHAUST ARE ANALL STAINLEES STEEL SYSTEM WITH A VERY RICH SOUND ON ACCELERATION. THE CAR HAS RECENT REBUILT FRONT SHOCKS AND A NEW REAR TUBE SHOCK CONVERSION. THE GRIP TO THE ROAD IS PROVIDED BY SUMITOMO PERFORMANCE TIRES MOUNTED ON MINILITE WHEELS INCLUDING THE SPARE.

THE INTERIOR AND MATCHING TRUNK (BOOT)UPHOLSTERY IS ALL NEW AND IN EXCELLANT CONDITION. THE SEATS ARE VERY COMFORTABLE. INCLUDED ARE A COVER FOR THE CONVERTABLE TOP, TONEAU COVER AND A CAR COVER FOR KEEPING THE DUST OFF WHEN PARKED. THE CONVERTABLE TOP IS ALSO NEW. THE DASH PANEL NOW IS ALL STEEL, ITH THE CENTER HOT AIR OUTLET REPLACED BY A GARMIN GPS. ADDITIONAL GAUGES FOR VOLTAGE, MPERAGE, ND EXHAUST MIXTURE HAVE BEEN ADDED. A SWITCH PANEL TO CONTROL FRONT AND REAR LIGHTING IS ALSO AT HAND. THE STEERING WHEEL IS A NEW MOTO-LITA. ALSO INCLUDED IS A PLEXIGLASS WINDBLOCKER TO KEEP THE WIND FROM HITTING THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD. ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF THE PASSENGER SEAT IS WHERE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER RESIDES. THERE IS A REAR JUMP SEAT UPHOLSTERED TO MATCH. UNDER THE JUMP SEAT ARE TWO 12-VOLT BATTERYS WIRED IN PARALLEL TO PROVIDE MORE CURRENT TO THE HIGH TORQUE STARTER AND THE OTHER ACCESSORIES.

UNDER THE HOOD (BONNET) ARE RELAYS AND FUSE PANELS THAT PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR ALL CIRCUITS THAT, THINK,SHOULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED ORIGINALLY BY THE FACTORY. THEFUEL DELIVERY SYSTEM IS NEW: NEW TANK, new GATES BARRICADE ALCOHOL PROOF FLEXIBLE LINES, new FUEL PRE AND POST FILTERS,NEW ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP, new FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR AND PRESSURE GAUGE. ALSO UNDER THE BONNET IS A MOUNTED VACUUM GAUGE. PERTRONIX IGNITION PROVIDES THE SPARK THROUGH A SET OF HIGH PERFORMANCE PLUG WIRES CONNECTED TO NGK PLUGS.

STILL ON MY TO DO LIST IS TO FINISH THE INSTALLATION OF THE CRUISE CONTROL, ND ALL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE KIT WILL BE INCLUDED; INSTALL THE POWER WINDOW KIT (INCLUDED). ALL MANUALS AND BOOKS THAT I HAVE ON THE CARE AND FEEDING OF AN MGB WILL ALSO BE INCLUDED. I AM AT AN AGE WHERE I AM HAVING A VERY DIFFICULT TIME DOING THE WORK ON MY SMALL COLLECTION OF BRITISH CARS, ND THE WIFE SAYS NOW IS THE TIME TO DOWN SIZE.
