The BAD

The hardtop cover is in great condition just the plastic window is a lil cracked and foggy. I also have a snap in cover when the top is down that is in great condition.

The passengar side seat has a small rip in on top of the seat.

Brakes need to be bleed and also possibly a new battery.   It was siting in the garage over winter and battery drained a little bit.   I have charged the battery and it works just fine but possibly in the future it might need a new one.   I drive the car once a weekend to the local car shows and for small cruises.

Other than those small things. the car does not need antyhing else that I know of.   Drives fine with no problem. the ride is a lil rough with the suspension but overall its not bad at all.

 

 

The car is a great little car and a head turner.   Everywhere I go people dont know what it is and when I tell them they are suprised that its a MG.

 

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to contact me and I will answer anything that I can and I also have a lot more pictures.


The car is located at Johnsburg. ILLINOIS zip code 60051 in case you want to find out shipping information
