This is a unique opportunity to know exactly how much rust is on a car BEFORE you strip the paint and start a restoration.
This car is virtually rust free. except for the light surface coat of rust on the unpainted areas now. I am getting rid of my storage unit and this needs to go on the the next care taker!
I focused mainly on the body as far as pictures are concerned as that is the biggest cost to restoring an MGB. You can see that there is no accident or rust damage to this car.
I have gone over the parts and the car looks to be complete of all major systems.
The car has;
NEW dash cover installed
NEW left and right side door skins
The front suspension was rebuilt about 1000 miles before the car was taken off the road New bushings. hubs and all associated bits were new. I think that even the shocks were replaced with new units.
The rear suspension. which is just in place to make moving easier. has new leaf springs.
Comes with a REBUILT engine. This is the original engine that has been rebuilt with new pistons. Of course the cylinder head was redone as well. New clutch installed on the flywheel.
Most of the paint has been ground off so you can really see what you are getting into. This car truly has NOTHING to hide!
California title in my name and the car is on non-op status with the original blue and yellow 6 digit plates.
If you want more information or pictures contact me through ebay and I will call you.
Also has a good exhaust system. not pictured. All the parts are in boxes in the car. I can set the engine and trans in place for transport.
I can assist with delivery. If it is down to the bay area. Southern California. Oregon. or on the other side of the planet.
If you are considering restoring a car this will save you thousands in body work. No panels on this car need replacement. Floors-solid. rockers-solid. inner fenders-solid. trunk-solid. Front fenders are about as perfect as they get!
The only area that you may want to improve is the panel between the passenger compartment and the trunk which has holes cut into it for speakers. Not my personal favorite. but it was the style at the time.
Any questions or if you want to see more pictures. just let me know.
