 I recently obtained this MGB in a business deal so I have limited details. But I do have a binder with information which documents the conversion of this car into a V8. If you are looking for an original and unmolested '66 MGB. this is not going to be the car you want. Consider this MGB a Frankenstein if you are looking for original.

The car is extremely solid and runs/drives very well. The fuel injected V8 starts up quickly like a modern car and has nice V8 exhaust note. This conversion was supposedly the last of 10 conversions done by a British car shop in the Maryland/DC area and the only one with the AC components installed. The AC is not working at this time. The black cloth top is very fresh with completely clear and still flexible windows. There is also a hardtop that is also in very good condition.

Here is a list of components that were installed during the conversion:
1) Rover 4. 0. fuel injected
2) Camaro T5 transmission with . 63 fifth gear
3) MGC rear differential 3. 70 ratio
4) 8" Ford rear 3. 55:1
5) M&G front/rear sway bars; 1" front; 5/8" rear
6) RV8 style headers. jet hot coated
7) Stock '66 wheels modified to 6X15

All gauges appear to be working in the expected ranges. but that is all I know about them.

I can't tell about the heat and how the controls are working. The binder says that it has Hot Rod Air AC. heat and defrost. which means nothing to me.

After reading the binder to get the information above it seems that this car used parts of a '66 and a mid 70's MGB but I can't tell how much of each. The title is for a '66.

If you know British cars or older cars in general. then you know that rust is always an issue. This MG is in amazingly good condition underneath and shows some rust bubbles on the driver's rear quarter panel(top seam<see picture> and lower rocker). Front brake pads and rear shoes/wheel cylinders are new. but that was all that was required to get it back on the country roads where it belongs.

If you are looking for a classic British car look and driving experience. but want something more powerful. unique and carb-free(especially with today's ethanol fuel). then this V8-powered MG would be a good choice.

This is a 50 year old vehicle so there are no warranties or guarantees. and it is sold as-is.

A nonrefundable deposit of $500 through Paypal is necessary to end the auction. Final payment in the form of cash. cashier's check. personal check(after it clears only) or wire transfer.
