1974 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
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!
