Classic Car Overview

Seriously, does anything epitomize the sheer exhilaration of top-down driving like weekend jaunts through the countryside in a two-seater sports car? This 1973 MG MGB Convertible is ready and willing to give you that unique brand of excitement. And as any sports car buff will tell you, owning an MG is much more than an experience; its a lifestyle all its own. Youll be drawn to this Daytona Blue roadster at first glance as its brilliant finish takes you by the hand and pulls you closer. Its a nice, higher-end driver-quality paint job that was just finished in 2017 and shows well enough to grab you and not let go. And much to its credit, this classic has successfully retained its factory look. This is a 73 model, so it has the chrome bumpers that make it highly-coveted among collectors. By the end of 74, those bumpers had been replaced by black plastic units, forever solidifying the chrome bumper legacy in terms of value, style and prestige. And speaking of chrome, all the brightwork was replaced when the car was repainted, so the glistening shine you see in the pictures is quite genuine. The black vinyl convertible top is in excellent shape, having just been replaced in late 2018. It fits very snug and the manual operating mechanism works just fine, thank you. So, you dont have to worry that putting the top up and down will be an all-day job. What a relief! Back in the day, MG engineers had a real talent for maximizing interior space. Obviously, the MGB isnt as roomy as a limousine, but the way the entire inside envelopes the driver makes for a very cozy driving environment. For example, the space between the three-spoke steering wheel and the gearshift is close enough to keep total control well within your grasp. And from the seats to the door panels to the dash pad, the beautiful black vinyl upholstery shows well and is still soft and pliable. Of course, Smiths gauges are a mainstay in Great Britain on everything from sports cars to farm tractors. Youll find full instrumentation on this dash, with a large speedometer (the only aftermarket piece, it now features a GPS-guided unit) and tach, complemented by smaller gauges for oil pressure, water temperature, fuel, etc. This is one of those unique machines that came from the factory without a radio. But with a car this exciting, who needs music? The soft purr of the engine is as compelling as any Top 40 tune! The 1.8L in line four cylinder is an excellent power source for this roadster. Its a responsive little motor with plenty of pep. This one is paired up with a 4-speed manual transmission, which is the hot ticket for allowing it to reach its full potential. Youll be impressed with the performance of this combination, not to mention the fuel economy and reliability, thanks to lots of recent maintenance. As you survey the engine compartment, youll find everything tidy and in its place, pretty much just like it was when it left the factory in Abingdon, England. Rust under the hood is a common concern with these cars, but you wont find any of those issues with this car, as its spent most of its life in the warm south. Likewise, youll find the chassis and suspension to be well-preserved and showing no excessive wear. A nice set of 185/70R14 tires on stock wire rims allow this MGB to maintain its good solid posture. It rides well. It handles well. The power train is awesome. This is British workmanship at its finest. They really know how to build them across the pond! This 1973 MG MGB Convertible really puts the fun back into driving. See what we mean about MG ownership being a lifestyle? Dont you deserve that? Call today!
