Description for MG MGB 1974

This 1974 MGB is a well restored version of the affordable/fun/workable/iconic British roadster. That makes it the perfect upgraded and reliable companion for people who enjoy driving.
It's hard not to be attracted to this roadster right from the first impression. It has lived a good life averaging less than 1,400 miles annually, but there's much more attraction than just that. The brightness of the Pearl White paint instantly tells you there has been a large investment. It has been fully restored in stages, with the final pieces being completed earlier this year. As you can tell, someone spent plenty on paint and body. So this sunshine-friendly roadster has a great sunny day personality that radiates through the modern clearcoat. The restoration is also why the panel gap is uniform, the trim is complete, and if you ever do need more protection, the new tan folding roof has a precision fit. Plus, the metal bumpers have a mirror finish, and that's especially important on this car. By the end of 1974 the MGB traded in its chrome grille and chrome bumpers for black plastic units forever giving chrome bumper cars the upper hand in style and prestige. That's why earlier MGBs like this one will often cost you a bit more, but they also hold the extra value. But more than just retaining a higher stature in the market, you can see this one is a cut-above right down to the set of genuine wire wheels.
Inside you'll see more advantages of a careful restoration. In fact, we have receipts for $5,400 invested in the interior alone. The custom black and tan setup is a far more thoughtful presentation than from the factory, and it's made of supple leather. It makes it even more inviting to sit down in the bucket seat, feel the grip of the three spoke steering wheel, and realize how the gear stick just feels perfect in your right hand. You get a full set of Smiths gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer, as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. The stereo is an upgraded Kenwood AM/FM/CD with satellite radio and USB input, so you can easily find your sunny day soundtrack.
Just one look at the pictures, and it's obvious that the restoration included the engine bay. More than just show-worthy paint, this has all the hallmarks of confidence tidy wires, good hoses, and an overall cleanliness that tell you the fluids stay internal. In fact, there's only about 100 miles on this motor since its major service, and so you'll be the one to fully break it in. A fresh investment for worry-free driving is exactly what you like to see in an MGB, because these motors are a stout product that are rev-happy and love to be driving to the fullest. Making sure that this engine stays in its sweet spot is the control of the four-speed manual transmission with electronic overdrive. If this sounds like the perfect car to take on the backroads, then you'd be exactly correct. The light weight combines with telepathic steering, front disc brakes, and modern Michelin tires to create a sprightly experience that makes these British roadsters legendary.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos, build receipts, and maintenance records. It's amazing that a roadster with so much invested in it can still be this affordable. You know how desirable this example is, and we bet you're not the only one looking for a sunny day cruiser, so hurry up and call today!
