Description for MG MGB 1979

This MGB is show quality. The engine was stripped to a bare block and hot-tanked and re-manufactured, bringing every surface and every tolerance back to original specifications through the use of state of the art equipment. Ihave rebuilt the Motor less than 3000 miles ago and have driven it to NAMGBR at Dillard, Ga and French-Lick, IN. The engine is bored 40 over, I installed all new pistons, wrist pins, pin-bushings,rings, rod bearings, timing components, valves, lifters, and Crankshaft. Head resurfaced, oil pump and a high performance Camshaft. I had the exhaust manifold ceramic coated and I installed a pair of SU HS4 carburetors. It has a Wizard alloy 4 pass radiator and a Corvette C-4 cooling fan. New clutch and a Limey's relay kit for the horn and lights. I also installed a rebuilt all syncro 4 speed with factory electric overdrive using the 64-68 LH overdrive with a top dipstick for checking oil. You can see the Rocker switch for the Overdrive on the Custom Gearshift knob turned from South American Cocobolo Wood to match the cup holder and luggage rack wood strips. I have also installed a Cruise control with vacuum canister and it works great for highway driving in accelerate, coast and set. New FM radio and speakers. There are way too many things to mention in this listing. I have all receipts of everything I have purchased for this MGB. I have installed 1970 vintage Lucas fog lights on a chromed Badge Bar. The paint is excellent with only a few rock chips that have been touched up and I have a 1/2 pt.of Carmine Red factory matching paint for further touch up. This car drives straight and cruises on the highway at 75 MPH like a dream. More pictures upon request. I am not using it as much as I age, so I am selling it with a lower than worth reserve and listing it for three days only. As you can see it is in great shape. I have more in it than I am selling it for. It shouldn't last long......Good Luck.....If you have questions and can't get a quick response through eBay mail, you can call me at: 217-248-2762.
I added a picture of the Cruise Control switch. It was installed where the Ashtray used to be.I was asked about the top. It is a new Prestige top from the UK bought about a 2 years ago and has never seen rain. I also have the original Tonneau cover. Its faded and I never have used it.
