New 1975 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
Don't have a history, really know little other than our own tests and observations. But we have done some intensive examination, thorough testing, and this is what we found:
Excellent body/floors/chassis, new BRG paint, mostly new tan interior, wood dashboard, very good top and tonneau, complete chrome bumper conversion including elimination of side lights, excellent inside and out.
BUT, the big news is the 2.3 liter Ford Mustang OHC engine.....50-60 psi oil pressure when hot, 165-175 psi compression in every cylinder, Weber carb, tubular headers, around 140hp, huge aluminum radiator, electronic CDI multi spark ignition, 5 speed close ratio transmission, 15" Minilites with P195/60 H rated tires, REALLY goes>>>>>>>>>> As in ZOOOOOOOOOM.
Thermostatically controlled electric radiator fan, excellent wiring, nicely painted and detailed engine bay, digital stereo, GPS speedo, all in a really neat, modified (and improved) MGB.
Alas, due to the engine being situated back in the engine bay for superior weight distribution, the original heater has been removed. However, we offer a far more powerful auxiliary heater that would fit nicely under the glove box, connected to the cooling system, and with a more powerful blower, offers far better heat than the car's original heater. So, in the end, no loss, only gain.
From the exterior, looks stock. And with the light, compact Ford OHC engine, excellent weight distribution. With four cylinders, plenty of room in the engine bay for routine service. And with the big Weber carb, huge alloy radiator, modern electronic ignition, and five speed transmission, sort of the best MGB NEVER sold in the USA! (and you can have the engine and trans serviced at your local gas station)
