1967 MGB Mk I RoadsterRust-free Calif Car, Wire Wheels, BRG, Hardtop, Ready to Tour!
SOLD to Connecticut. This is a very nice example of the 1967 MGB Roadster that is a wonderfully nice driving car that presents itself well. Being a California car, this MG is without rust and is a very honest and original car. Having one repaint in Racing Green it looks terrific with its painted wire wheels. This MG has been professionally serviced and is ready to enjoy!!
Our consignment client has sold off his collection which had included a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, a Bentley and others. This is his last remaining collector car. He has owned this MGB for the past seven years and bought it in Santa Cruz, CA. The reason this car spoke to him is its honesty. Having the original tools, jacks, hardtop, top frame and all the original storage bags is almost unheard of these days. When he purchased it, it had the sheepskin seat covers installed (included in the sale). He was impressed upon removing them to find the original black vinyl interior still in nice condition. Even the optional black hardtop is in nice original condition.
The Racing Green paint is in overall good condition with very nice shine and luster. There are several areas where there are little chips, orange peel and other minor defects that are noticeable upon close inspection. The largest area is on the drivers front fender where there is a 1.5 inch long and .25 inch wide area of poor paint prep. It is right in the crease and hard to see, but we included a close up in the photo gallery. The chrome is overall excellent. Only the drivers side bullet mirror shows minor pitting. The glass is very nice with a few wiper scratches on the drivers side of the windshield. Overall, we love the look of the Racing Green livery with wire wheels, true knock offs, the bullet mirror and the trunk rack!!! Classic British!!
The black vinyl upholstery on the seats, dashboard and door panels are all very nice and all but the seats are believed to be original. The black seats are contrasted with white piping and are in terrific condition for the age. There are no rips or issues on the seats themselves, just minor cracking on the white piping. The black dash is excellent with no cracking or issues, confirming a life led inside a garage. The steering wheel and other interior trim are also in excellent condition. The black carpet is new and the car comes with the collapsible top, a very original and vintage black vinyl convertible top and tonneau cover. The convertible top has one tear on the drivers side and the triple plastic windows are slightly discolored from age. The MGB comes with its original black removable hardtop that is in very nice condition.
The engine compartment is in excellent condition and is well detailed. This MGB is set up well for touring or local shows. The 1.8 liter four cylinder engine has excellent compression with each cylinder ranging from 170 to 180 psi from a recent compression test. The dual SU carbs work well and the four speed transmission is a pleasure to drive. The brakes have recently been serviced with new rotors, pads and brakes lines. Receipts for recent work are available for inspection. This car flew through our 158 point inspection. Everything works as it should. The report is available for your review.
The undercarriage is as nice as you would expect being a California car. There are none of the common rust issues. This is just a terrific solid and honest survivor. The car is complete with the original jack, top components, spare wire wheel, lead hammer and all the storage bags that you never see. It also comes with a car cover, the sheepskin seat covers and a large number of spare parts. Service receipts will accompany the car as well. The original AM radio has been fully restored just as it was in 1967!
