Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS


This MGB was in California its entire life until coming to Arizona earlier this year. It has been partially restored as a sharp looking driver that can be enjoyed as-is or continued to be improved over time. It is completely rust and accident free, freshly repainted, new interior and ready to drive! We love MGB GT’s, especially with wire wheels and chrome bumpers!

From 1988 until 2013 the MGB was with one California owner. It was bought by the last owner completely with its original paint and interior (both red). The new owner transported the car from California to Arizona and proceeded to restore most of it including:

-Stripping the car down to metal and repainting it in black with red stripes
-New interior in black vinyl with red piping, new carpet, headliner, etc.
-New bumpers, front valance, and door seals
-Brakes and other mechanical systems rebuilt, new or serviced
-New radials, AM/FM CD with iPod input, etc.

We just had the MGB serviced by The MG Shop here in Phoenix. The engineer there rebuilt the speedometer resulting in the odometer reading changing from 78,000 miles to what you see in the photos now. The car likely has just over 78,000 miles from new.

The paint and interior are not concours quality but what you would expect as driver quality. The heater is not operational and all other instruments, horns, lights, etc. work well. The turn signals don’t cancel after a turn is completed. The steering wheel is the original and has cracks that need to be repaired or replaced, if desired with a wooden wheel. The transmission is perfect and feels terrific!! I love the close-throw transmission on this model.

This is a completely rust and accident free MGB GT that can be enjoyed as is or improved over time. It is ready for local car shows or touring. We have priced this to sell. For more information please call Harry at 602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com. The car is located in Paradise Valley, AZ not Temecula, CA.

Interesting Fact: The MGB succeeded the MGA, both of which were produced by MG, in 1962. Production continued on this model until 1980, which ended with over 523,000 cars being manufactured.

Interesting Fact: The MGB succeeded the MGA, both of which were produced by MG, in 1962. Production continued on this model until 1980, which ended with over 523,000 cars being manufactured. Assembly on the MGB occurred in multiple areas, but originally began in Abingdon, England before eventually moving to Australia. The car itself is a powerful beast, with a 0 to 60 acceleration time of around 11 seconds with a power output of 95 horsepower; both respectable numbers for the time period. Crumple zones were first introduced on the MGB, a game-changer for the automobile industry, when a driver was killed in a collision with a taxi. This event led to the development of safety standards for the auto industry as a whole. There is a four-cylinder and eight-cylinder option for the MGB, but both are known for providing a fantastic driving experience. Car collectors and enthusiasts alike still try to get their hands on this model!
