This is a wonderful restored MGB that has traveled 56,700 miles since new. It had a complete restoration with all components rebuilt. This is a wonderful MGB that can be enjoyed on tours or taken to local and regional shows.
We just love Jaguars and MG’s in British Racing Green livery with tan leather interior. And this example has new replacement wire knock-off wheels which just sets it off perfectly!! This is the only year of the split chrome rear bumper- and we love the look!
It now has less than 15,000 miles on the engine since the complete rebuild. You can tell this MG has been loved and enjoyed- not treated as a trailer queen. Recently, the last owner replaced the black convertible top and installed a new clutch. We just had the MG inspected at The MG Shop here in Arizona. We had the rear brake cylinders and shoes replaced, all brake hoses replaced and all fluids topped off. Mechanically the car is excellent.
The MGB was “body off-restored” by its previous owner, Susan Dalton of Coon Rapids, MN. She owned the car for many years and sold it in March of 2010 to Lyall Shaer from Berona, WI. Lyall enjoyed the car and made a variety of improvements and ultimately lost the car in a business bankruptcy.
Mechanically, this MGB retains its original 1,798cc pushrod engine, four-speed all-synchro transmission and all the familiar running gear. These are wonderful to drive and quite dependable and simple. We just drove it all afternoon in 105F here in Arizona and the car performed just great (and we didn’t use the auxiliary electric cooling fan)!
The gauges, instruments, horn, turn signals all work as they should. It has a newer set of Michelin radials installed for performance and safety. While it retains its original British Motor Corporation stereo it also has a modern AM/FM CD player professionally installed under the dash. The speakers are in movable boxes behind the tan leather seats for easy removal for car shows, etc.
The tan leather interior is in excellent condition. The dash has no cracks, there are no splits or tears in the leather (yes, leather). The black convertible top is brand new. The BRG livery is very good to excellent. There is one small scratch by the front of the hood (bonnet) otherwise it is really an excellent repaint. The chrome and stainless are very good to excellent as well. Most of the chrome looks new. As mentioned, all the electronics work very well. There are some wires that need to be taped up and stowed. I would perform a major service on the car just to have a baseline for on going maintenance. This is a very nice performing MGB.
