There arent many better ways to get into a traditional British roadster than this 1971 MGB. Classic good looks in a car that doesnt cost a fortune to acquire or maintain, its the ideal vintage sportster for the purist who prefers the old fashioned way of doing things. Sure, the B was starting to show its age by 1971, but thats all part of its charm, and with delicate chrome bumpers, the early cars have an entirely different look than their rubber-snouted younger siblings. With that in mind, this 1971 model is the one you want: clean and straight with all the good stuff already on board. The bright red paint is an older repaint that still looks good, with just a few signs of age and perhaps a passengers door that has been touched up at some point. The bodywork underneath is pretty good, too, with straight panels and no sign of the dreaded tin worm for which these cars were notorious. Of course, those chrome bumpers that make this one of the more desirable Bs are in excellent shape, as is the grille, which is protected by a set of rubber-lined bumper guards that actually look quite sporting. There are also headlight guards that give it a vintage British sports car feel and change the cars attitude quite a bit. Classic accommodations for two can be found inside the cozy MGB, but once youre behind the wheel youll discover that theres plenty of room and the driving position is quite good. The 3-spoke steering wheel looks suitably racy with its wooden rim and will go great with your string-backed driving gloves. The shifter falls readily to hand under spirited driving and the seats are grippy enough for the cars modest performance. The wooden dashboard was gone by 1971, but the classic Smiths instruments remain, giving a tantalizing glimpse into history. And while its not your primary source of entertainment in an MG, the AM/FM/cassette stereo is a thoughtful addition. The trunk is basic, but carries a full-sized spare, a jack, and a set of black carpets to make it look finished. Overhead you get a folding tan vinyl top thats older but still quite presentable, and it stows in seconds for proper open-air motoring. The engine is the same rugged, reliable 1798 cc inline-four that propelled MGs for years, but why mess with a good thing? Thanks to a single carburetor and basic ignition system, maintenance can be performed with a screwdriver, and it has a satisfyingly fat torque curve that makes the car feel quick and agile around town. Its nicely maintained under the bonnet, too, with the engine and transmission reportedly being rebuilt about 40,000 miles ago. Theres also a big oil cooler up front thats a popular MGB addition for spirited driving. The 4-speed manual is a joy to shift, especially with pedals easily placed for heel-and-toe maneuvers, and you may find yourself dropping down a gear in tunnels just to hear its brawny exhaust note (which was reportedly copied by Mazda engineers working on the first Miata). Braking is confident and handling competent thanks to the cars size and low center of gravity. And, of course, attractive alloy wheels have been fitted wearing fat 205/60/14 radials which are surely worlds better than the original Dunlops. Theres no better way to have fun with the top down than a vintage British roadster. Take this MGB home today!... Read more

Its hard to find a better way to get into a British roadster than this 1971 MGB convertible. A product of a long-term ownership, you get a classic that was cared for correctly and even given comprehensive restoration later in life. This is the chrome lovers MGB. Collectors are always on the lookout for these earlier examples with the form-hugging chrome bumpers and grille. Plus, the bright work is complete, and there is nothing more iconic than a true set of wire wheels. The addition of the luggage rack makes this ready to strap on a wicker picnic basket for a day-long meandering journey. In fact, this car has averaged less than 1,500 miles annually, and it was truly used as a pleasure-driver by professionals. One physician bought it from another physician (the original owner) in the late 1970s. He kept it in the family, eventually giving it to his son, a lawyer. It even was restored in 1999 when the teal blue paint was refreshed exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly roadster. The newer black convertible top looks great against the blue. So youll be happy to see that when you take it down, theres an equally crisp black interior. Nicely bolstered bucket seats, large headrests, and an armrest center console make the cozy space also feel quite comfy. Plus, the wood on the gearshift knob and surrounding the upgraded Lecarra sports steering wheel give this real British warmth. As a true drivers car, you get a full set of Smiths gauges. It includes a large speedometer and tachometer, as well as dials for the vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. It all combines for that prefect package where everything is at your fingertips. And its at this time you begin to understand why other people take the long way home. You already know the story on how this one has been under long-term care, and so it should be no surprise that its believed to still have the original motor. The 1.8-liter and its twin carbs looks crisp and correct. But the true worth of the investment in this MGB is out on the road. Youll love the confidence this classic gives you as you take full control of the rev-happy motor with the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, the light steering, nimble chassis, and control of front disc brakes will remind you why this is a true driving icon. Attractiveness, affordability, and a great story is all available right now in a turn-key package. So why go another weekend without this droptop classic in your life? Call now!... Read more

1971 MG MGB Convertible Restored in Chevy Corvette Cobalt Blue. This is my third MGB and from experience this body has been taken care of. I doubt if it has ever been left out over night because the floor pans and rockers are all original and in great shape. If you have owned one or looked at any you will appreciate how well everything works from the way the doors operate to the ease of using the soft top. The car is just in great shape. I was told it was stored for 20 years in a hanger but who knows, all I can say for certain is that it is not what you would normally expect in a 1971 MGB. Its just a great car. Mechanically it runs out fine when I bought it and it ran fine driving 80-90 mph the entire trip with no problems. Features:Mini Craiger 4 spoke wheels Original Engine with apprx. 6k miles since build does not use nor leak oil, great compression and oil pressure smooth and always over 55 psi when warmed up, 75 psi max when cold. Never overheats even after hours on highway on hottest days Original Top still in great condition with good original fit, easy to use, zippered window, all snaps good. Electrical is 100%, bright at night, always starts easily on first attempt New carpet, seat foam and covers, door and side panels New tires Mechanically 100% (see faults) Never left out at night, original floor pans are 100% Alpine Phantom Face Deck and Alpine 6-1/2 DD-Drive Component speakers in boxes sitting on rear deck (deck hides when key turned off and speakers car be unplugged and stored in trunk just in case.

Just finished...a nice, clean BGT fitted with a rebuilt, modified 150hp 2.8 Ford Capri V6 engine, 2bbl carb, custom headers, high flow exhaust, new clutch, Bosch alternator, narrowed (and stronger than stock) Ford back axle wth 3.09 final drive (making a 5th speed redundant), rebuilt Mustang II transmission, oil cooler, improved cooling system, rare full Webasto=style fabric sunroof with lift up wind breaker, choice of 15" modular alloy OR (as shown) Minilite wheels with 195/60 Dunlop V rated high speed radials, gas shocks, new windshield and rubber surround, new Sony stereo/CD with USB input, new master cylinder and rear wheel cylinders, a very interesting modestly priced high performance classic GT car. Last owner told me the car was originally from California, floors look perfect and having gone over all of the edges of the body (and the bottoms of the doors) with a magnet, I suspect there is no plastic filler. While a stock MGB gets 18 miles per 1,000 rpm in top gear and one with overdrive, 21, the high ratio Ford back axle gives around 25.....easy cruising, very quiet engine, and a lot less wear. And, of course, a stock MGB puts out around 92hp.....HUGE difference in this car. Very good flame red paint and very good black interior.. (photos taken near end of our day, color is actually a bit lighter than shown) Inquire for details... Read more

(photos taken near end of our day, color is actually a bit lighter than shown) We also just installed a modern air conditioning unit with high powered supplemental heating making this GT a worthy consideration as a classic alternative to a contemporary car. In many ways, it quite close to the ultimate BGT....the V6 engine offers performance comparable to the European BGTV8 yet the engine is more compact. With air conditioning, better heat sunroof, and lots and lots of other practical options, in many ways we created an incredible classic MG. Just finished, ready to drive anywhere.... Read more
