1974 MG MGB GT for sale
I bought the car off of “Bring A Trailer” about 2. 5 years ago. Here is a link to the listing then:
The overdrive is an extremely desirable optional feature from the factory. not found on most MGBs.
My intention was to give the car to my wife as a 30th anniversary present (she had indicated a fondness for them way back). The car would need to be a reliable daily driver for someone who is not interested in doing any side-of-the-road mechanical work. As purchased. this car was a good starting point. and has checked out well (I have driven it more than 4000 miles all over New England). Additionally. in pursuit of enhanced reliable road-worthiness. improved appearance and extended longevity. I have had the following work done professionally:
Rebuilt cylinder head (new guides. valves. seals hardened seats)
New carrier bearings
Replacement spider gear in rear differential
New thrust washers. diff.
New bearing kit. . (tube axle)
New wheel bearings
New Tires (4) 185/70R-14 Michelin Defender
New axle limit straps
New tie rod ends
New steering rack boots
New ignition coil.
New ignition. Pertronix.
New distributor cap.
New ignition wire set
New spark plugs
New thermostat & housing gasket.
New radiator hoses.
New oil line
New valve cover gasket.
New valve cover seal washer
New oil filter.
New oil seal.
New fuel pump (no points! -I have the old one plus new points if you want)
New fuel filter.
New master cylinder
New clutch slave cylinder.
New wheel cylinders. rear
New clutch hose.
New brake hoses
New brake lines
New brake shoes
New brake pads.
New boot. whl/cyl handbrake lever.
Fresh DOT 4 brake fluid
New seat belts
Removed CA smog devices
Comprehensive tune by MG mechanic (British Motorworks. Ashland. MA)
Minor rust repair at 4 corners where top meets body
New rear glass and seals
New rear bumper
The car is not show perfect. (Although one photo is in a show at Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market in downtown Boston) but instead is an excellent “driver” which I would take anywhere without hesitation. I really get a hoot out of driving it. It did not become my wife's car. since. after doing all this. I found a green one. and she likes green better.
