A no rust California car Purchased in 2003 by a 73 year old Bob Davidson (a fixture of early '50s Cal Club racing scene - famously campaigned an MGTC powered by a Ford V8-60).   This MGB was tastefully and effectively upgraded over the next nine years with everything Bob thought relevant to a fast road machine. for use with the MG Club on tours. road rallies. etc.   This is a driver's car. good looking and tidy. but not concours.   It has accumulated approximately 3000 miles since 2003.   Great curb appeal . shows well.

Engine holds 70 PSI of oil pressure at 1500 RPM.

Very quick … handles impeccably and emits a wonderful exhaust note.   Less than 3. 00 miles on everything listed.   If you've ever dreamed of participating in the Snowball Rally or the Anti-Football Run (as seen on “Bring-A-Trailer. com”) then you could do a lot worse than this beauty.  
The current owner was happy to pay $15. 00 for this car three years ago. but with an eye towards a new acquisition needs the garage space.
