This is my 1974 MGB with rare factory overdrive with solid chrome bumpers. The car has been very. very well cared for and much work has just been completed and huge $$ where spent bringing her to this level as you will read and see in auction description. The car is available to be seen and driven anytime during the auction. The car is selling this week to the highest bidder and is priced well below current market value. If you know vintage British cars you know how much it takes to get a car to this level and what and exceptional value this car is - plus it has factory overdrive !!Mechanically: The car runs great and has tight and responsive steering. The car starts right up with no issues. ticks. nbsp;smoke or shacking about. Holds very good oil pressure at about 60 lbs warm at idle and a tick over 70 lbs warm at speed. The car has been recently converted to a Webber carburetor system for reliability and performance. The car shifts up / down through all gears with no bidding or grinding of the gears. The rare factory overdrive works flawlessly. Recent work completed included the following: New points. new spark plugs. new ignition wires. new distributor cap. new rotor button. new coil. nbsp;oil changed. new oil filter. valve adjustment. nbsp;new front brake pads. new front brake rotors. new brake master cylinder. new clutch master cylinder. new clutch slave cylinder. new radiator. new hood pad / insulation kit and new engine bay seal. About a year ago the alternator was replaced along with the fan belt and starter motor. As you can see the engine bay is highly detailed and the engine was removed prior to the re spray so the engine bay color / quality matches the exterior of the car. At this time I know of nothing the car needs other that to be driven and enjoyed. I would not hesitate to drive this car any distance. Note: I was told by the previous owner that the engine was rebuilt prior to my purchase but I have no documentation. Car runs and performs like its been rebuilt and visual inspection also indicates its most likely true that the engine has been rebuilt. Again. runs and drives like a dream. Overdrive Transmission: Yes the car sports its original factory overdrive transmission that works flawlessly and really makes a huge difference when on the highway. Electrical's:This area is in amazing condition !!!Headlights ( high & low beam ) work . wipers work. front & rear turn signals work. front & rear running lights work. front and rear side marker lights work. nbsp;brake lights work. nbsp;backup lights work. license plate lights work. nbsp; dash gauge lights work. dash indicator lights work. dash warning lights work. interior courtesy / map light works. nbsp;hazard switch works. cigarette lighter works and blower fan works. Heck even the trunk light works!!Gauges: All gauges are correct and original "Smith" brand and are in proper working order. Interior: The interior has was redone with a new complete dash. new glove box. new upper center console. new lower console. new arm rest. upgraded steering wheel. nbsp;new sun visors and new sun visor retaining clips. Also. the car sports a new Kenwood stereo system with new speakers as well. Other items done in the recent past are recovered seats. door panels replaced. door seals replaced and the carpet was replaced. A very nicely presented interior as seen in the photos. Exterior: The car presents herself extremely well in the photos and in person. The newer soft top and high end wheel and tire package really sets the car off and apart from what you normally see out there. The wheels are made in the UK Mini Lite brand 8 spoke wheels with MG logo center caps and MG logo lug nuts. Tires are BF Goodrich high quality radials. The car sits nicely on the ground with no signs of leaning or sagging. As seen all body panels. hood. trunk. rocker panels. dog legs. doors. front / rear lower valances. jack points are extremely straight and the panel / door fit is awesome. I can't find a ding or dent in any of the body panels. The windows and windshield seals / gaskets where replaced at time of the re spray and are in like new condition. All glass is clear and scratch / cloud free. The repaint on the car was done about 2 years ago and was done to a very high standard. I find no runs. drips. orange peel or over spray anywhere on the car. The paint is very shinny and silky smooth to the touch with no gritty feel to it. The car has been driven and enjoyed since the repaint so she's not perfect but in my opinion its a sold 8+ still. Note: At the time of the re spray the chrome door handles. chrome door locks. chrome wiper arms and the chrome body molding where all replaced. Also. its not seen in the photos but there is a small paint chip on the drivers side front wheel inner arch. There are a few blemishes due to using the car since the re spray. Underbody: Is solid with no signs of repairs as seen it the photo. Soft Top: Is in very. very good condition. Trunk: The trunk is solid and has a newer trunk carpet kit and trunk seal. The trunk was also re sprayed to match the exterior and engine bay. Overseas Bidders: Yes the auction is open to overseas bidders.
