1966 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 ex California, rust free MGB, went over all of the edges with my kitchen magnet, stuck everywhere....no indication of plastic filler anywhere. With essentially perfect floors and sills.
84,000 authentic miles since new, engine rebuilt at 62,000 miles. UNUSUALLY powerful, free revving, stays at 65 psi oil pressure when warm, no smoke, one of the 'liveliest' MGBs I have ever driven. New SU carbs, new fuel tank, and an excellent clutch and gearbox....no slippage, no chatter, no 'sizzle' in the shift lever, excellent synchromesh, overall, fairly close to 'as new.'
Has wire wheels, interior has been redone and exactly as original, can see a new radiator, new oil cooler, has new springs, rebuilt front end (king pins and bushings), this is a superb, ready for show MGB that should offer the next owner many years of wonderful classic sports car driving.
What else? New convertible top, excellent chrome, excellent original cloth covered wiring harness, new stereo/CD, zero rust in the nicely painted trunk compartment, and..........yes, we could easily remove the roll bar and attend to any other details a future owner wishes. We even can fit a powerful supplemental heater and hardtop making this a very useful car in cold weather (as I have found, after fitting those two items to my own 1965 MGB....nice and warm and comfy even on a 10 or 20 degree day) and extending the use from eight or nine months to a full twelve months a year.
The best of the best of MGBs, a pre 1968 steel dash car with wire wheels and in excellent rust free condition.
