1964 MG MGB
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
A beautiful, thorough restoration on one of the most desirable MGBs....a beautiful, low mileage, rust free 1964 roadster. In very close to immaculate condition (and yes, I DID notice the ripped seat bottom and it is already on its way for repair).
Paint has a literal 'mirror' finish. And I went over all of the edges with my kitchen magnet, lower part of doors, rockers, quarters, etc.....no sign of bondo anywhere. What appears to be a perfect body.
"Like new" mechanically, the 3 main bearing engine revs in a way that a 5 main doesn't. Smooth, powerful, easily gets up to the redline in all gears, didn't once beat the synchromesh in the trans, runs 80 psi oil pressure when fully warm, even idles at 40 psi. AND zero smoke, cold or hot. It simply doesn't come any better than this.
Brakes are excellent, same with ride, handling, steering, every gauge and switch works, wiring looks to be in great condition, carbs rebuilt, has wire wheels, new radials, even has its original lightweight alloy hood.....most of these have been bent and damaged and replaced with later model MGB steel hoods. But not this car.
Details.....new top, restored top frame, spotless trunk, expensive Nardi steering wheel, never had a radio, excellent chrome and trim, AND yes, the seat will be repaired.
This is the best early MGB we have ever had in 44 years of business and hundred and hundreds of MGBs sold. It starts instantly, runs flawlessly, drives wonderfully, and is ready for a serious show.
In reality, it is like going back in time and finding a near brand new early MGB. And a rare opportunity for some lucky buyer.
