UP FOR RE-AUCTION IS THIS UN MOLESTED 1974 MGB GT WITH 57450 ORIGINAL MILES.IT HAS PASSED THE 2017 MASSACHUSETTS SAFETY INSPECTION AND HAS A CLEAR TITLE IN HAND.THIS CAR HAD NOT BEEN REGISTERED SINCE 1998 AND HAS SPENT YEARS IN INSIDE STORAGE FOR MOST OF IT'S LIFE. THIS IS A SOLI, RUST FREE CAR, ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND IN TODAY'S MARKETPLACE. SOMEWHERE IN IT'S PAST, THE ORIGINAL COLOR WAS CHANGED FROM A CREAM COLOR TO THE CURRENT RED. THE PRESENT PAINT LOOKS GREAT EVEN ON AN UP CLOSE INSPECTION. THERE ARE (2) SMALL DENTS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE CAR. ONE IS VISIBLE ON THE REAR QUARTER NEAR THE LIGHTS, THE OTHER ON THE FRONT DOOR UNDER THE MIRROR. BOTH ARE EASY FIXES VIA DENT LESS REMOVAL AND THE PAINT SKIN IS NOT BROKEN THRU. BOTH LOOK LIKE STORAGE STORAGE BUMPS THE FRONT NOT VISIBLE IN MY PICTURES.
THE COVETED CHROME BUMPERS AND EXTERIOR TRIM ARE EXCELLENT AND FREE FROM RUST AND DENTS. ALL DOORS AND LIDS CLOSE AS THEY SHOULD AND ASSOCIATED GASKETS AND WEATHERSTRIPPING ARE SUPPLE AND NOT DRIED OUT. THERE ARE 5 EXCELLENT WIRE WHEELS, A RARE ONE ON THE SPARE TIRE. THE TIRES ALL AROUND HAVE TONS OF LIFE LEFT IN THEM. THE CAR COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL TOOLS, JACK AND 2 OWNERS MANUALS BUT DOES NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL TOOL BAG.
THE ENGINE HAS TREMENDOUS OIL PRESSURE AND HAS NO OIL LEAKS. THE 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION SHIFTS PROPERLY AND SMOOTHLY. THE ENGINE HAS THE PREFERRED WEBER CARB CONVERSION WITH A K@N AIR FILTER AND A MANUAL CHOKE. THE CAR RUNS STRONG, HAS NEW PLUGS, WIRES,AND A RECENT LIFTER ADJUSTMENT. NO SMOKE AT START UP (RARE ) AND NO RATTLES. THE MILEAGE IS ORIGINAL AND VERIFIED BY THE PREVIOUS TITLEHOLDER. THE CAR ALSO HAS AIR CONDITIONING INSTALLED BY THE DEALER AND WITH THE FALL SEASON UPON US I MADE NO ATTEMPT TO VERIFY THE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY. ALL THE COMPONENTS APPEAR TO BE THERE, LOOK NEW, AND THE SUB DASH IS WIRED IN.TO ACCEPT IT. REFLECTIVE SOUND DEADENING MATERIAL HAS REPLACED THE UNSIGHTLY HORSE HAIR UNDER THE HOOD.
THE INTERIOR OF THE CAR IS CLEAN AND CRISP THE DOOR PANELS AND DASH HAVE NO CRACKING AND THE CLOTH/ VINYL INTERIOR HAS NO RIPS OR PUNCTURE, OR UNSIGHTLY DISCOLORATION. IT HAS AN EXCELLENT CLEAN HEADLINER AND RUBBER FLOOR MATS. THE LOWER DASH PANEL HAS ALL THE CONTROLS FOR AIR CONDITIONING AND THE DASH ALL ESSENTIAL OPERATING GAUGES. ALL INTERIOR LIGHTS WORK AS WELL AS DOES THE ORIGINAL AM/FM RADIO. WINDOWS ARE ALL SCRATCH FREE. TO MAKE THE INTERIOR PRISTINE, I WOULD REPLACE BOTH RETRACTABLE SEAT BELT MATERIALS WHICH ARE PARTIALLY DISCOLORED BUT WORK JUST FINE.
THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT CONTAINS ONLY ONE 12 VOLT BATTERY, WITH PROVISIONS FOR ANOTHER NEARBY. THIS CAR IS A GREAT EXAMPLE FOR SOMEONE TO OWN THAT APPRECIATES A RARE CLASSIC THAT STANDS ABOVE THOSE THAT YOU HAVE VIEWED IN PREVIOUS LISTINGS THAT HAVE HIGHER MILEAGE, LESS DESIRABLE CARBS, RUST AND RUST RELATED ISSUES AS WELL AS UNDISCLOSED WEAKNESSES THAT PICTURES DON;T DEPICT.
***** I HAVE REDUCED THE STARTING PRICE ON THIS UNMOLESTED CLASSIC WHICH IS FAR BELOW THOSE ON LISTINGS YOU HAVE PASSED TO VIEW THIS ONE .*****
