My first car was a new Blue 1965 MGB when I was on active duty military. Was looking for a 'fun' car and thought I wanted another 'B' But after 2 years, it isn't the right car for me. Prior owner had the car painted green, installed new vinyl upholstery, carpets (both in Honey tan) and made other minor repairs.I have added: New vinyl top, head rests/restraints (covered to match the honey tan, honey tan shift boot, 3-point seat belts, Hermosa Radio from Retro Radio, reinstalled the heater core that was removed previously because it was leaking, new badge bar with running lights, light relay and dash switch, Wood grain steering wheel (have the faux wood dash and consul inserts/covers but not installed), new dash cap to replace the cracked cap, new front shocks, break lines, and a myriad of smaller items. I had the clutch slave cylinder replaced.Acceleration is good, but not like the Beach Boys ‘409’, driving is GREAT, , handling is quick and tight and fun to drive. It is a conversation starter – people will say… I had; my Dad had; my best friend had; My Dad, sister and I took a road trip from Indiana to Tucson in a 70 ‘B’ (yes someone said it to me)…Sometimes twice in the same parking lot.There are 3 or 4 shop manuals and the original Owner’s Manual , along with paid invoices back to 1988 included. Its been driven from Marana on the Northwest side of Tucson to Vail on the Southeast side and all parts in between. On surface streets and I-10 with highway speeds are at a steady 65 and several times at 70 (3500 to 4000 rpm). Wish I could keep it but I can’t and it is the right time to find an owner who can take it to the next level and drive it for years to come. Come see it and drive it you will not be sorry!

A beautiful South Carolina car...excellent floors, sills, body, battery boxes, etc. With very good red paint. Excellent drive train....145-150 psi compression in every cylinder, 65+ psi oil pressure when warm, very smooth running, Weber carb, headers, all synchromesh transmission, oil cooler, very tidy engine bay, brakes work well, steering is right, no rattles, drives very well. Wire wheels with all new splined hubs, mostly new chrome, new chrome knock offs, fairly new top and tonneau, wood dash and wood steering wheel, modern stereo/CD. Even original jack bag, jack and knock off hammer. All gauges work, all electrics work properly, looks great, runs great, what is left? And, as a 1974, one of the last of the chrome bumper MGBs, modern safety equipment, FAR better electricals and hydraulics than earlier MGBs but maintaining the classic pre-rubber bumper look.
Here is what we were told, what we know, what we can see, and what we are doing to finish this car.First of all, really excellent body....my kitchen magnet stuck everywhere and there wasn't the slightest trace of plastic filler. New bright red paint is very very nice. No rust, no damage, no patching underneath. So far, so good.Engine: 160 psi compression in every cylinder, 60-70 psi oil pressure, zero smoke cold or hot. Really doesn't get any better. New Weber carb, electronic ignition, high powered electric radiator cooling fan, all items for greatly improved reliability. And clutch was recently replaced (with the engine bay nicely painted when the engine was out), gearbox is faultless, and steering, suspension, brakes all felt first rate.We can see Aeorquip brake lines, new calipers, new clutch and brake master cylinders, LOTS of new parts. Very impressive.Has wire wheels, we can offer this car with painted, chrome, or even 15" painted or chrome wire wheels. Even a rare set of knock off Minilites we have in stock.Interior is completely redone, completely stripped, new thick heat shielding throughout the interior, new padding, insulation, new premium fitted carpet set, redone seats, panels, new Honey Teak wood dashboard, new headliner, even a high quality wood steering wheel, new stereo/CD with USB input, all gauges work, all electricals work, on and on. A VERY impressive interior. And to make things work better than new, installed new LED bulbs in all gauges and interior lights.What have we left out? Chrome is very good, same with trim, wiring, electricals, has an oil cooler with new Aeroquip lines, quiet exhaust, new battery, front end is nice and tight and we fitted new tie rod ends, new tires, overall a really excellent MGB GT.AND........it doesn't stop there. Because, as additions, we can offer this car with a modern 5 speed transmission, rebuilt overdrive transmission, even with the ultimate....a rebuilt 3.4 liter Camaro V6 with special manifolds, 390cfm Holley 4bbl, around 180hp and coupled to a rebuilt close ratio T5 five speed transmission.AND........on the subject of additional equipment, can offer this car with a new air conditioning assembly with a powerful supplemental heater. And even a full fabric sunroof. ALL in stock and all easily installed.If you want us to create a 'dream' MGB GT for you with Aston Martin performance, great classic looks, and still simple and easy to service and repair....we can do it. AND price, for this car, depends on any options a buyer may wish us to add (price listed is for car as seen and described in this ad).
As beautiful a restored BGT as we have ever seen.....meticulously done by an enthusiast (and twenty year owner of this car), from what I can see, really didn't miss a beat.I went over all of the edges of the body with my kitchen magnet, couldn't find a trace of plastic filler. Car was painted a year ago (or less) and it just beautiful, and even better with all new chrome. Interior is all new and very nicely detailed. Same with dash, headliner, carpets (with padding), spotlessWe were told the engine was rebuilt a few thousand miles ago....smooth, amply powerful, 65-70 psi oil pressure when warm, zero smoke cold or hot, clutch works perfectly, excellent gearbox synchromesh, and everything is unusually quiet and refined.Can see new SU carbs, new oil cooler and lines, excellent wiring harness, very clean engine bay, all gauges and all electrics work, lots of new parts (distributor, washer bag, coil, oil pressure line, etc.) and the result is an impressive, excellent driving MGBGT in show condition (with the proviso that my term 'show' is not meant to be Pebble Beach quality, rather, for local shows). And in driving, incredibly quiet and refined.Now, one can look at this car as a beginning....and an excellent beginning. What would I do? First I would change the wheels (and have included a couple of photos with a set of Minilite replica wheels to show how it would look). Or, for a more classic appearance, convert to wire wheels. Painted or chrome.I find the dashboards rather plain and I would install a Honey Teak wood dash....in my eye, adds to the car's appeal. And, of course, a modern stereo/CD.What else? All of the above we can do AND.....a modern 5 speed transmission? Air conditioning? Fabric full roof sunroof? Driving lights (for the 'rally look')? Being that this car has such a perfect body and floor, all rebuilt drive train, new interior....it would be wonderful starting point to continue the preparatory work.AND, last but not least, the ultimate addition (and we are doing one right now for a customer) is the installation of a 180hp Camaro 3.4 liter V6 engine and T5 five speed transmission. For Aston Martin like performance.(in their day, in England, these cars were called the 'poor man's Aston') And with 180+hp in a 2300 pound GT car, performance would be remarkably similar.A buyer's choice, as to how to 'finish' this MG, and we have experience in doing any of these modifications.
Just finished...excellent floor, just repainted in NGB Flame red (including trunk, engine bay, door jambs, etc.), wire wheels (wheels sandblasted, primed and painted), interior completely redone, new carpets, interior panels, door top, and seats redone in Autumn Leaf. Exhaust seems to be new (and is quiet), all gauges work, 150 psi oil pressure in every cylinder, 50-55 psi when hot on the highway, no smoke, excellent clutch and synchromesh, very good ride, steering, and handling. Chrome is very good, same with top and tonneau, new wood dash, Sony stereo/CD with USB input, brakes just done (master cylinder, calipers, pistons, wheel cylinders, etc.), all new clutch hydraulics, new fuel pump, tank and all fuel lines cleaned...a gorgeous example of this desirable year (last year of chrome bumpers). Inquire for details and options we can add.
1974 MG B, One-owner car, driven off Orange Motors of Coral Gables' lot 11 July ‘74. All original except for color; engine rebuilt early 2006, under 12,000 miles' use since then. Clutch and oil pump replaced at that time, and brakes re-done as well. Transmission in excellent condition, shifts crisply, never abused. Recent clutch master and slave cylinder replacement by owner, as well as engine oil and filter change, transmission oil change, front-end and driveshaft lube. Four new tires and tubes installed mid-2016. The “B” is running very well and is still being driven 1-2 days per week. 80% of the miles have been road miles; car has been garaged 90% of its life. The body is solid and rust-free. Battery replaced July 6th with equivalent Group 26 single 12-volt unit.This car can be enjoyed “as is” with no need to spend large sums to make it drivable and pleasing to the eyes. Down the road, it would not be difficult and/or overly expensive to bring it back to showroom quality. Note: the ugly “Sabrina” bumpers were discarded over 30 years ago. VIN is GHN5UE348638 G.
