1800 CC, 4 SPEED MANUAL, NEW TOP, DRIVES EXCELLENT, SUPER CLEAN, FUN!!
Just like the VW Beetle, MGBs are quickly rising in popularity due to their great affordability and fun for the buck. This 1975 MG MGB is an excellent way to enjoy the classic car hobby while also enjoying the sun and twisty roads.
These are honest roadsters that deserve attention with classic style, nice trim and the white paint on the MG's compact body is a great, subtle look. The rubber bumpers are a love-it proposition for MG fans, but the important thing is that they're in good shape and the fit is quite good. Panel fitment is nice, the body work is clean and straight, and the doors shut with confidence. It's simple in design and everything remains in nice enough shape that'll you'll love taking it out and showing it off while enjoying it how it was intended, and that's enjoying a nimble driving experience.
A brown, vinyl interior adds an elegant touch and looks even better with a contrasting black dash. The bucket seats are covered in a weave that keeps them cool and comfortable on hot summer days, and wear has been minimal. Beautiful Smiths gauges are part of the British charm, all of them functional, as is the more recent AM/FM/CD stereo just ahead of the black shifter. The door panels are clad in more brown vinyl with operational window cranks and speakers for the updated stereo system. With the new convertible top up or top down, there's ample head room for taller drivers, and the 3-spoke steering wheel connects those drivers to the road.
The roadster was only available with a reliable and torquey 1800cc inline-four which was good for about 60 horsepower. But with less than 2000 pounds of car to haul around, performance is entertaining. You'll quickly discover the joy of a British sports car isn't tire-melting power, but the exceptional balance of power and cornering. A 4-speed manual shifts easily and you'll be wanting to master the heel-and-toe maneuver so that you can savor the tenor exhaust note provided by the aftermarket muffler. The engine bay is tidy with evidence of careful maintenance. Carburetor and exhaust upgrades may add a bit of performance, too, while power brakes make the driving experience a bit more enjoyable.
It's probably safe to assume these cars have found their share of their market, they don't get much more affordable than this. And while it may not be skyrocketing in value anytime soon, you'll certainly be appreciative of the many thrills this car brings. Call today!
