Seller's notes: "This is a 1972 vehicle. It is *not* perfect. There are a few small scratches in the paint (surface) on the passenger side....I tried to photograph them. I believe they can be buffed out. If you look closely at it, there are some small chips here and there, and there is a small scuff mark on the back chrome bumper. I am NOT aware of any rust, however, I am sure there is some somewhere. It runs great....the battery was dead over the winter as the lights got turned on, but it jump started right to life. If it sits idle for a few weeks it may need a little coaxing, but I am the *least* mechanically inclined human being ever and I have never had an issue with it at all."

When I was a little child. my father drove a 1970 MGB. My mother disapproved of his habit of strapping me into a 1970-grade carseat and taking me on the highway. so. in time. he sold it to a friend who lived in the neighborhood. That MGB used to whip around the neighborhood like Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. When I left for college. my father used to talk about that MGB. We all loved it. My dad died of cancer in 2002. In 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Six rounds of chemo later. I was determined to be cancer free. I celebrated by buying a 1972 (I looked for a 70 but couldn't find one) British Racing Green MGB. Since I am not mechanically inclined. I needed one that RAN. I found this one in Oklahoma and my 18 year old son drove my bald. scrawny self up to get it. We drove it home on a flatbed. It smells like leather. the same way my dad's MGB used to smell. It runs like a top and I drive it around the city. scarf on my head and sunglasses on. It never gives me any trouble and I feel like a movie star in it. It has been to the Jiffy Lube a few times to change the oil (and because the oil change guys like it) but has been otherwise left alone. mechanics-wise. The battery died over the winter because my teenage kids like to sit in it and take pictures and one of them hit the light switch. but a jump start and it roared to life first start. It lives in the garage. bubbled in cotton.
It has been fully restored. It has a full size spare in the trunk. chrome bumpers. wire wheels. I have the original wheels around somewhere. I think. Now. I never got it inspected in Texas because there is no horn on the wood show steering wheel. I have the original steering wheel. so if you want to drive it everyday. you probably will want to get the the horn hooked up. It just isn't as pretty. I also have the top. but I have NO idea what sort of condition it is in. I have never had it on. The A/C doesn't work. I don't think. its a convertible!! Everything else. to my knowledge. works just fine. It does have a CD changer in it for your tunes. There are a few dings here and there to the paint. some surface scratches on the passenger side. A small scratch to the bumper on the passenger side. Also. the little button on the driver's side door is loose. I am being picky here. It is really in marvelous shape.
I am only selling it because I simply do not have the garage space for it. I am moving to a home with just carport parking and I am afraid of something happening to it. I have the Texas Title for it. You will need to get it inspected in order to have it fully registered. or you can register it as a collectors car.
I have included lots of pictures. and I am happy to answer any questions. I know NOTHING about cars. but I will try. I want this car to go to a GOOD home. I won't deliver it anywhere. pick it up in Frisco. Texas. Also. if you buy it. you buy it as it is. unless I have misrepresented it in some way. PLEASE ask questions! This is a 1972 MGB. garage kept and loved. driven. rubbed with a soft cloth. but it is a 1972 vehicle. Once it is sold. its sold. I will require an immediate deposit and cashier's check upon delivery. Scammers or criminals. please don't bother. I am a cop. I run an honest auction. If you would like to see it before auction end. I would be happy to show it to you.
