1972 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
As arrived.............miserable original paint but no exterior rust (nor need for repair). Sorry floors (however) in desperate need of repair or replacement. Ran very well and the only issue with the drive train was a nosy second gear. Excellent headliner, dash, seats, etc.
So, we are well along in the prep work......smoothed out the bodywork, sanded spots down to the bare metal, not in primer. Pulled the engine and transmission, rebuilt the engine (rings, bearings, oil pump, head work, etc.), new clutch, and installed a rebuilt transmission. Fitted a new 32/36 DGV Weber carb, new chrome headers, new door panels, a new burled wood dash , new digital stereo, have a new carpet set to install, and are about to cut the entire floor out and install new factory floors.
At the same time, brakes were sticking a bit, installed new calipers. Chrome was quite good and will be reused. Exhaust quiet, all gauges work, will be a very nice MGBGT when done. And 1972-1974 are the best,in my opinion, MGBGTs (I own a white '74)_ with dash air vents and glove box.
Now, at the moment, we haven't decided on a color and, when painting, we will paint the engine bay, under the hood, and door jambs for a complete color change. AND RIGHT NOW, a lucky buyer can but whatever color he may want. ANd ADD whatever options he may desire.
Air conditioning, sunroof, powerful auxiliary heater, wire wheels or alloy wheels, the list is fairly endless. But as you see in the description, we have already added a lot.
Available immediately in choice of color. Call for further details or to discuss how you want it finished.
(actual finished price will be determined by whatever finishing work we do)
