1978 MG MGB1978 MGB Convertible that I purchased in New Mexico and brought to Arizona. I used it as a daily driver when I worked in NM but with a 4 year old, ave no use for it anymore.
I'll list the pro's and con's:
Engine was rebuilt right before I bought it. It starts right up, ven after sitting for a month here and there. Drives great, hifts smoothly between gears, uspension is solid. Body is fairly dent free and straight. Everything looks to be original, ven has the standard Zenith carburetor. I had a new fuel pump installed. Glass is all good. Tires are fairly new, lenty of tread left. I've driven it in town, lenty of power, nd I've had it on the highway buzzing at 80mph. Clean title.
There are some gauges and wiring issues that need to be sorted out, y someone smarter than me. The tach works sometimes, he fuel gauge floats around. Speedo and odometer/trip meter work. The original clock still works, icks away. Hazard lights work, ut turn signals don't. I had the alternator rebuilt in ABQ but it's only showing 12.4 amps, nd should be 14 or above. This is causing me to keep a trickle charge on it once a week. Paint is pretty chipped, ee pics. Interior, hile functional, eeds work. Dash is cracked. The seats have a slip cover on them, omfortable enough. Needs a new top, he mechanics of the top go up and down just fine. Needs new carpet someday.
All in all, his is a functional fun little convertible that needs mainly cosmetic work, echanically it's pretty solid. Average price on Hagerty is around $8,750.00, ut I know restoring a vehicle adds up, o I'm offering this at a fair price($2,800.00 OBO) for someone who wants a convertible 2 seater to buzz around in.
