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
It ran and drove wonderfully, we did a compression check and found 155-160 psi all across, runs 65+ oil pressure, no smoke, clutch didn't grab or slip, excellent synchromesh..........a very tight, excellent running MGB. Wire harness looks good, not worn or patched, and the overall 'look' is of a babied, cared for car.
Just painted the exterior in a bright red (base coat/clear coat acrylic, hand wet sanded and buffed), same with engine bay, trunk, and door jambs, installed a nice set of MG Limited Edition alloy wheels (and yes, we can convert to wire wheels if so desired), new carpets, dyed the new door panels, dash, and console to match, new door seals, interior came out great.
As a 1978 left the factory with rubber bumpers...but now, a complete chrome bumper conversion with new chrome bumpers, Mk I grille, we eliminated the side lights (and welded in plates), exterior is virtually identical to an early MGB. Also a new expensive wood steering wheel, And also added a new burled wood dash and a digital stereo with bluetooth (yet with knobs for the classic look).
All in all, a beautiful rust free, excellent running MGB with a near new cloth top, boot cover, spotless trunk, all new chrome, and ready for a fun Summer.
