HISTORY

Originally a New York car, this MG was purchased by the previous owners (a young, couple in their 20s) on July 1, 2014. According to what they have written ...

“The original owner (upstate New York) used to race the car ... it has been driven every day since we purchased it from him. My girlfriend and I drove it 8,500 miles on a new set of tires and tune-ups in a four week span. A month later we drove it from Napa Valley to Vancouver (2,000 miles) for a Memorial Day weekend.” Among other adventures, they also took it to Lake Tahoe.

Most recently, they drove the car to my home in Southern California and sold it to me. My wife and I took them to San Diego, where they had already put a deposit on a 4-wheel drive vehicle, and for all I know they plan on traversing the Himalayas. They HAVE made a trip to the China Wall. Hey! MG owners, past present and future, can be very interesting people. Oh, to be young again!

CONDITION

Because the car spent the majority of its time back east, it has SIGNIFICANT RUST in the floors and related areas. Interestingly, the shut-lines of the body are very straight, and there is just a small amount of rust in the trunk. I do believe the paint is factory original. Bill of Sale will include “This car sold as is, with no guaranties or warranties expressed or implied.”

The previous owner also has said, in writing, “We have recently had an engine out job where we replaced the clutch, starter, and put in new engine mounts.”


**TITLE DETAILS

Car has good Maryland title, still in the previous owners name. The car was registered in California, something the California DMV allows, even though the car retains a Maryland title.


The runs and drives, HAS EXCELLENT COMPRESSION (written test included with the car) but cosmetically, the car is tired. Also, some things are missing here and there. For example, both of the front latches for the hard top are missing. A soft top frame isn't included with the car, but I have one in storage if you're interested.

And then, once again, there are the positives ... wire wheels, overdrive, factory hard top, a straight body, original paint, correct engine, split rear bumpers (only on a 1970 MGB) and a VERY interesting history!
