EATON SUPERCHARGED 1.8L 4 CYL! 4 SPEED MANUAL, PWR FRT DISC BRKS, FUN DRIVER!

There are not many better ways to enjoy a warm summer day and a twisting country road than from behind the wheel of a traditional British sports car. This supercharged 1976 MG MGB represents the last of the breed, a wonderful foray into a time when the cars were elemental and pure, and the driving experience wasn't measured on a clock, but by the size of the grin on your face.

The MGB is one of those cars that everyone loves, and one look at this handsome Bracken (aka Muddy Orange) specimen will tell you all you need to know. Its compact proportions are ideally suited to carrying two passengers, there's no extra fat to steal performance. The taut bodywork is an evolutionary design that by 1976 had grown the large rubber front bumper/grille assembly, giving it a more aggressive look that was pure 1970s cool. Sure, some people prefer the look of the chrome bumper MG's, but when coupled with a cool black racing stripe, we actually really love this look. The Bracken repaint on this roadster (applied in 2005) looks pretty good overall, showing only minor signs of use and age, and makes the little roadster look substantial despite its affordable price tag. There's no sign of rust or other ... Please ask for the full description.

EATON SUPERCHARGED 1.8L 4 CYL! 4 SPEED MANUAL, PWR FRT DISC BRKS, FUN DRIVER!

There are not many better ways to enjoy a warm summer day and a twisting country road than from behind the wheel of a traditional British sports car. This supercharged 1976 MG MGB represents the last of the breed, a wonderful foray into a time when the cars were elemental and pure, and the driving experience wasn't measured on a clock, but by the size of the grin on your face.

The MGB is one of those cars that everyone loves, and one look at this handsome Bracken (aka Muddy Orange) specimen will tell you all you need to know. Its compact proportions are ideally suited to carrying two passengers, there's no extra fat to steal performance. The taut bodywork is an evolutionary design that by 1976 had grown the large rubber front bumper/grille assembly, giving it a more aggressive look that was pure 1970s cool. Sure, some people prefer the look of the chrome bumper MG's, but when coupled with a cool black racing stripe, we actually really love this look. The Bracken repaint on this roadster (applied in 2005) looks pretty good overall, showing only minor signs of use and age, and makes the little roadster look substantial despite its affordable price tag. There's no sign of rust or other typical MGB issues, and the fit and finish is really in great shape, strong driver-quality through and through. The chrome trunk rack is something you'll undoubtedly find useful on your next road trip and the traditional 3-element taillight lenses remain in excellent condition.

The light brown interior is in very nice condition, showing no major wear on any of the soft components. The seats are particularly firm and supportive, with woven vinyl inserts that apparently wear like stone, as they show practically zero signs of use aside from the typical comfort marks. Black carpets are deep and rich and untouched by UV fading, the matching door panels remain taut and clean, and although the black dash has a few cracks, it comes protected with a carpeted pad. All the gauges were refreshed and the set now includes a Boost gauge to keep an eye on the supercharger, and the leather-wrapped steering wheel is incredibly sporty, suggesting that performance was always paramount for this little roadster. An Alpine AM/FM/CD head unit was installed to handle the entertainment, and the center console is in great shape, complete with the funnest part of the car – the 4-speed shifter. The black convertible top looks recent and offers a clear rear window (three of them, actually), and it can be thrown open in a matter of moments, so it's easy to take advantage of open-air motoring any time the mood strikes you. There's also a matching black boot that gives it a smooth profile and the surprisingly spacious trunk comes loaded with a full-size spare tire and jack set.

The thrill of a British sports car is not in its sheer power and speed, but in one's ability to use most of the car's performance envelope without worry. The MG's 1.8 liter inline-four (aka the 1798cc) really comes to life with the aid of the Eaton Supercharger, especially at full bore, with plenty of torque and the most wonderful sound, aggressive at idle and a fantastic tenor bellow at full throttle. It uses a Weber carburetor with electric choke to make starting easy and there's a recent alternator to keep the battery topped off. A 4-2-1 exhaust header feeds a stock-style exhaust system (complete with a catalytic convertor) with a nice raspy exhaust note, and handling is light thanks to a well-sorted suspension and a modest curb weight. It's not detailed underneath and there's a bit of dirt and grime, but that's reassuring because you can see this little car has nothing to hide, and power front disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering mean this roadster is ready for the road today. Four 185/70/14 Michelin radials have been fitted to the original wheels for a timeless look.

MGB fans know how wonderful these are, and how difficult good ones are to find. This one is ready to have fun for not a lot of money. Call today!
