Description

RECENTLY REBUILT 1800CC INLINE-4 & 4SPD TRAN, RUNS/DRIVES GR8, CLEAN IN/OUT, WOW

This 1978 MGB is the car for those who like something extra with their classic cars. It has extra shine from the paint, extra comfort from the interior, and an overall extra feeling of care from a two-owner car that was invested in correctly by both caretakers.

This car makes a terrific first impression. The correct Carmine Red paint was given a professional respray in the early 2000s, and when you pay for quality, it lasts. This retains a deep luster and hard shine, and that's exactly what you want in a sunshine-friendly drop-top. The smooth black bumpers look good against this deeper shade of red, and they also coordinate with the taut folding roof. And for added distinction, a rare hardtop also comes with the sale, too. The full-length trim has a nice shine as it showcases the straightness of the body, and the polished luggage rack on the trunk is a British sports car favorite. Another European hallmark are the wire wheels with real knock-off hubs. Not only do you get these, but also an excellent set of minilite wheels come with the sale, too.

Even more extras await you inside. This is extra comfortable with the supple leather upholstery. It's part of the larger investments in this car from over the last five years (the low odometer represents how far its traveled since this last overhaul) The carpeting is fresh, dash is smooth, and the panels feel crisp. Plus, there are nice upgrades like cup holders. And a proper investment in a car like this means it really remains a driver's machine. The MG sports steering wheel feels great in your left hand, and the gearstick is exactly where you want your right hand to be. In front of you is the crisp and clear full gauge package with the large speedo and tach.

The motor was also part of the more recent investment in the car. It includes a professional rebuild of what is believed to be the original 1800cc motor. Not only does it look fresh and run strong, but also there were the right upgrades to add an extra nip to the performance. This includes a Weber carburetor, Canon intake, and an exhaust headers. This was given a new clutch so that the rebuilt four-speed keeps you firmly in control. Plus, new bushings, steering rack, and front A-arms are all part of an investment to make this one of the most solid driers you will find.

Complete with owner's manual, this is the MGB with plenty of extras. So you need to be extra quick to catch this deal. Call now!
