OVERVIEW

1970 MG MGB

  • DESCRIPTIONI have owned this car since 1975. The car has been garaged for most of its life. It was driven mainly during summer months and stored during the winter. Everything works - all lights & markers, blinkers, windshield wipers, heater fan and Horn! No cracks or chips in any glass. This car gets attention and shows well wherever it goes. Actual mileage is 110,570. The engine overhaul was done at 109,517 miles. Original full tonneau cover and small top boot cover in good condition. The car starts right up, runs easily, and idles smoothly. No engine smoke, and virtually no oil consumption. It shifts well with its standard 4-speed short throw gearbox. Brakes work well. Electric system is fine with no known issues. Exhaust system is in very good condition. Cooling system is like new. A good amount of paperwork is included with the car, including the original MGB owner's manual (poor condition), a factory shop manual, and a couple after market shop manuals. Tools for synchronizing the carburetors are included, and receipts for all parts purchased and work performed. Here are some of the highlights: Brand new fuel sending unit, but the gauge doesn't quite indicate full when the tank is full. The bottom half of the gauge is accurate. A few paint chips have been touched up, and there is a small crack in the top center of the instrument panel.
