SELLER REMARKS

Traditional British motoring is alive and well and still quite affordable in this 1970 MGB roadster. Beloved the world over. this is the perfect introduction to open-air motoring in the finest English style. and you can leave your "Prince of Darkness" jokes at home. because the MGB is reliable. too!


MGB fans will almost universally agree that the earlier chrome bumper cars are the ones to own. Like a lot of things they do. the Feds messed around with the styling and ended the B's classic roadster look with oversized rubber bumpers. So yes. there's a bit of a premium to be paid for an early car like this. but after taking a good. long look at it. you'll have to admit that it's absolutely worth it. The bright red paint looks right on a low-slung 2-seat sports car. of course. and while the profile is familiar. it's also timeless. It's been lowered a bit. so that certainly helps it look sleek. but it also has add-ons like the chrome bumper guards. matching luggage rack on the deck lid. and that ever-so-British fender-mounted rear-view mirror on the passenger's side. Finish quality is good. particularly for something so affordable. and it doesn't appear that this car was resurrected from a rusted-out hulk. but rather has been a decent car all its life. The chrome is in good condition. the wonderful MG badges on the front and rear are bold. and everyone around the world recognizes those taillight lenses.


There's truly something special about British sports cars; they really are unlike anything else and their charm is directly related to their hand-crafted nature. Black buckets are surprisingly comfortable and include optional headrests that give it an up-to-date look inside. Recent carpets. very nice door panels. and a rear package shelf make it very welcoming. and the wooden shifter handle adds a touch of warmth. Classic Smiths instruments. a smattering of knobs and switches. and an apparently random layout are all part of the car's British charm (you want ergonomics. buy a Miata). but it all becomes easier to use with familiarity. There is no radio. and you probably won't miss it because the driving experience is absolutely delightful. particularly when you peel back the black convertible top. There's also a 4-point roll bar behind the seats that adds a sporty countenance as well as a Works hardtop that's a rather rare and desirable option. Nice!


MG's torquey little 1798 cc inline-four is a blast to run through the gears and bellows with a baritone voice that's characteristic of big-bore roadsters of the past. Twin SU carburetors make for instantaneous throttle response and a wondrous top-end surge when you're really running hard. A few chrome bits dress up the engine bay. including a pair of K&N air filters that might help make a little power. too. The 4-speed transmission is a joy to run through the gears with light action and well-defined gates and a feel that rewards precision. The restoration didn't include detailing the chassis for show. but it is well-maintained and solid. with a few upgrades like the lowering springs and exhaust system that add to the sporty feel. Stock steel wheels wear 185/70/14 Goodyears and look quite good.


Inexpensive fun yesterday and today. this MGB delivers entertainment all out of proportion to the price of admission. Call today!
