Description:

1973 MG MGB GT

I bought the car from the original owners. It had been stored in a warehouse for the past five years.
Mechanically -
  • The clutch hydraulics have been replaced - master cylinder and slave cylinder. The brake system has also been replaced - master cylinder, wheel cylinders, front disc brake calipers.
  • The fuel system has been cleaned.
  • Car runs goods, shifts smooths and stops well. Occasionally carburetors putter under load - I'm told they need adjustment.
  • I eliminated the need for two 6 volt batteries in series. Runs off of a single 12 volt battery.
  • The muffler and tailpipe are later modifications and the muffler is loud.
  • As with alot of these cars, it has a slow oil leak when it sits for a while in the shop.
  • The car has a dealer installed Air conditioning! I can't tell if it works or not but it's all there and the owners said it had been working.
  • The tires hold air but are dry rotted, The chrome on the lug nuts is flaking off.

Cosmetically-
  • NO VISIBLE RUST! Pans are solid. Some surface corrosion where master cylinder leaked, but nothing serious. There is a small bubble on the hood lip(see photo)
  • The car was resprayed at some point. There is a series of Polaroid photos of the work showing windows out and trim removed.
  • The chrome and bright works is is decent condition and most could be polished out.
  • The rubber weather stripping around glass is dried out but keeps the water out for now.
  • Interior in great shape with only a cracked and buckled dash pad.

I have all of the original paper work including the window sticker! Some maintenance records too.
The car is located in northeastern South Carolina, about 20 miles from I-95 at the NC/SC border. I can deliver for cost up to 100 miles.
Car is sold AS-IS - please ask questions!
Thanks-
