GORGEOUS PAINT & INTERIOR, GREAT COLOR COMBO, DRIVES FANTASTIC, WELL SORTED MG!!
This 1978 MGB is an affordable example of a well-sorted and nicely coordinated British roadster. That's why the moment you saw this droptop, you thought of the open road. And because this has been maintained so well, you can enjoy it as soon as tomorrow.
The white paint is a nice standout on this roadster. There has been an investment to make sure the factory-correct color has been resprayed to offer a terrific shine every time you go for a sunny day drive. Plus, it provides a great contrast to the black bumpers, folding roof, and yes, even the tires. The color scheme is tied together properly with the black MGB rocker stripe. But more than just coordination, take a look at the details. The fitting of the bumper, the unbroken trim line that runs from headlight to taillight, the tautness of the convertible top, and the way the doors close with authority all signal to your senses that this has MG has received all the right care.
The full black interior with white piping on the seats looks great against the exterior color scheme – and that's exactly what you want because the car was meant for top-down fun. This is not the kind of cushy interior that comes from a turnpike cruiser, but if you've read this far, you already knew that. Instead, the entire inside envelops the driver like a second skin. The space between the three-spoke wheel and the stick shift (both finished in wood) is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. The driver gets a full set of gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. And this entire experience feels quite correct right down to AM/FM stereo.
Power comes from a sprightly 1798cc four-cylinder motor. This is the original motor to the car, and it shows all the right signs of good maintenance, including fresh belts, wires, and hoses. With a sporty exhaust note and a willingness to rev, the engine lives up to its British roadster pedigree by offering a mighty experience in a small package. The sound of the powerplant, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling are some of this car's many virtues. Plus, there's a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to the large 14-inch iconic alloy wheels with disc brakes behind the front set.
The MGB is one of those rare affordable icons, and this one does it all in a particularly striking package. So while it's as easy to own and maintain as a VW Beetle, this one certainly runs in much cooler circles. Call today!!!
