Description for MG MGB 1978

MGB roadster. 1978 A very special. highly modified MGB in excellent condition Found in West Virginia. well serviced and preserved. 47. 00 original miles (shows 71. 00 but last owner told us the speedo had been replaced) original miles. came into our operation in excellent condition…no rust. excellent drive train. original paint BUT with a tired interior. perfect compression and oil pressure. no smoke cold or hot. and the typical weaknesses of late model MGBs…. ugly. and heavy. rubber bumpers. elevated ride height to meet DOT bumper height regulations. and with a gutless single Stromberg carb and only 62. 5 hp. BUT. now………. complete. professional chrome bumper conversion. all new bumpers. guards. grille. hardware. we eliminate the side lights properly by welding in metal panels (to offer the exterior esthetics of an early B). painted in deep BRG to a show finish. lowered to pre-1975 ride height (drastically improves handling. fitted with a new 32DGV Weber carb on alloy Pierce manifold. headers. All new interior with black leather seats. wood dash. wood steering wheel. modern stereo/CD with USB input. new top. tonneau. carpeted trunk. new seat belts. new springs and suspension bushings. this is a fabulous MGB. /p> And the result…. the beautiful esthetics of the early MGBs but with bigger gauges. modern controls (on the dash and steering column stalks). alternator. front and rear sway bars. electronic ignition. power disc brakes. thermostatically controlled electric radiator fans. better fusing and electricals. a FAR superior car. Smooth. quiet. refined. yet still with all of the much beloved virtues of a simple. easy to service English sports car. In many ways. the best of both words. new and old. Later cars were extensively rust proofed and the photos of the floor show…. no rust. A wonderful car. easily adapted to air conditioning due to the face level air vents. and with contemporary performance and use. We can even supply this car with a hardtop for all season use. I have done my best to describe this car as accurately and candidly as possible. however. being a 30-year-old machine. it is offered 'as-is' with no warranty or guarantee. It is advertised in a number of publications and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time. We can store the car until it's shipped. and can arrange shipping anywhere in the world. We require a 10% deposit with 48 hours of auction close. and full payment within 7 days. Here is a great chance to own a beautiful classic! For inquiries. give a call during business hours.
