Vehicle Description

Found in West Virginia, well kep by previous owners, came in with perfect rust free floow, excellent body with original paint and no damage, rust, or filler. Also, came in as an ugly, gutless, ill handling late model B. But not any more. Just finished a comprehensive rehabilitatoon. Professional chrome bumper conversion, we even eliminated the side lights (properly, via welding in metal NOt slathering on fiberglass), all new new sheet metal lights, bumpers, grille, trim, and hardware (exterior is not indistinguishable from a pre 1968), lowered to early B ride height with new springs and bushings, 14" wire wheels, new Weber 32DGV on Piece manifold, tubular racing headers, new top, all new interior with leather seats, Zebra wood dashboard, new wood steering wheel, new seat belts, carpeted trunk, boot cover, original jack, new Sony stereo/CD with USB input, and (of course) new paint. Done to a literally 'mirror-like' finish. Gorgeous. Truly show quality. With perfect fit, arrow straight down the sides, really impressive. Engine: perfect compression and oil pressure, zero smoke, runs perfectly, everything works, exhaust is quiet, new fuel pump, new clutch master cylinder and slave unit, gas tank cleaned, 47k original miles (according to last owner) but shows 71k due to replacement speedo unit, was always garaged by last owner. Result, as nice a 'hybrid' MGB as exists....the beautiful esthetic of the early cars, the sophisticated upgrades of the later cars (electronic ignition, thermostatically controlled electric radiator cooling fans, bigger gauges, clock, better engine/trans mounting, thorough rust proofing, smoother engine, better gearbox, more modern safety equipment, better fusing and electrical system, servo assist power brakes, on and on), Just finished and ready to drive anywhere.
