New 1978 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
Not completely restored but has had a lot of work done to prepare a wonderful 43 year old classic.
Excellent body and paint, excellent floors and inner sills/rockers, No sign of rust, damage, or patching. And for better aesthetics, we performed a comprehensive chrome bumper conversion and even eliminated the side lights....with all new chrome, Mk I grille, the exterior is very close to the earliest and best looking MGBs.
Excellent drive train, no smoke, 140-145 psi compression, 75 psi oil pressure when warm, no smoke, fitted with a Weber carb and improved manifolds, 4 speed gearbox with perfect working overdrive, just installed a new wood steering wheel and burled wood dash, new top, excellent tonneau, and new carpets. Even has a new stainless steel exhaust system.
14" wire wheels, lowered to pre 1975 ride height, rebuilt front end, redone brakes (power assisted discs), very nicely detailed inside and out.
Looks great, drives great, and as a later model MGB, has such virtues as a larger radiator, thermostatically controlled radiator cooling fans, electronic ignition, stronger trans and back axle, better instruments, better electrical system, all inall, a FAR more reliable car than earlier MGBs.
Done, ready to drive anywhere.
