Description:

1974 MG MGB

This car is in show winning condition, handles great and is very fast. I ran the 11 miles of the Tail of the Dragon from the Tennessee side in 10 minutes 34 seconds and loved every second of it. I've showed and placed in every car show I entered, and just cruised in it and this car's performance is truly amazing. I'm selling it because I'm now heavy into Autocross Racing. My new love is my Formula 500 F Mod Racer and I race and travel every weekend and I don't have any time for the MG. I also need a bigger truck to haul my F Mod and trailer with.

This car is for sale on multiple sites and I reserve the right to sell it to the first legitimate buyer.
