Custom 1979 MG MGB Cobra Convertible finished in Red with Upgraded Black Leather covered and heated Miata seats. Power comes from, fasten your seatbelts... a Ford Boss 302 Crate V8 Engine producing 340hp and backed by a 5-Speed Tremec Manual Transmission. This is a classic look with an updated drive-train that's ready to lay some serious rubber. And, it has the correct and professionally executed suspension and performance upgrades necessary to help keep this Tiger-eating beast under control. This is... an excellent driving automobile and the attention to detail and craftsmanship is top of the line. The MG is a beautiful car in its own right, with its open top and smooth lines making for a most appealing classic sport scar.
