1980 MG MGB "B"
Everywhere I go in the MGB, get thumbs up and questions and stories. It is a very sharp car, nd has never had rust or an accident. It has many upgrades and the overdrive and functional AC! Lets talk about MGB's. I have been working on Brit cars for 50 years, nd the MGA and MGB are the best of the bunch. They are built like tanks...thick metal bodies and superior forgings and castings. They are comfortable, asy to maintain, nd going up in value! They are not fast but run very strong, specially with the upgrades this this car has received. here's what upgrades it has: The 1st thing you do to a MG is convert to tube shocks in the back, he handling stability goes way up! The next is convert to a down draft Weber carb and headers to make the top of the engine lighter and boost performance and reliability, specially in starting the car, nd being able to fine tune the fuel mixture. Then you replace the wire wheels or steel wheels with mag wheels to get rid of highway vibrations. All stamped steel wheels are out of round! The Mini Cooper wheels on this MGB make it smooth past 100 mph! next you really want an overdrive to save on fuel and engine wear, nd your car runs cooler also. Buying from a good owner is imperative too. I have owned this MGB for 5 years and it was my daily driver many of those years! I replace it with a Mini Cooper Clubman for taking long trips. Work I have done in the last 5000 miles includes: new oil cooler for surviving in Texas summers extra radiator 12v cooling fan w reliable thermal switch setup complete clutch rear brakes u-joints and pinion seal, hange tranny and diff oil and grease front suspension v8 mgb control arm bushings for longevity and comfort, tock bushings only last 20k miles, nd rack boots rear tube shock conversion and new Lucas Fork oil in the front shocks carpet inside and the trunk. There is no rust in either place! convertible top door panels wood dash kit sunvisor clips and new wiper blades Sherwin Williams paint and new windshield base seals and door window wipe seals new side stainless trim magnetic fresh air vent cover to keep summer heat out Mini Cooper JCW wheels smaller MGB LE steering wheel for better grip and faster steering new taillight lenses and for reverse lights too collapsing antennae so no holes are poked in the car cover high efficiency AC condensor and charge system piston rings and rod bearings and headgasket The cylinder head was just retorqued and the oil changed in the motor and oil cooler and valves reset Factory Luggage rack This MGB ROCKS, ooks and drives great, nd is a spiff car ready for your enjoyment. It has always been in Dallas except for road trips to Austin and Athens. I am the 3rd owner. The previous owner was a British British car mechanic Tony Richards who passed away a few years ago. Then I purchased it from the widow and took it to the next level. Always buy a car from a good adult owner, nd hopefully a car never owned by a teenager or young man who tend to butcher cars or overdrive and under service the cars. This car is an appreciating investment, nd is ready to supply years of enjoyment. This is the only MGB I am aware of that has both AC and Overdrive. Don't miss this rare opportunity for a great hobby!!! This is a last year production car.... You will enjoy the "thumbs up" signals, nd the stories people tell you about their MG's in the past. Compliments abound... Buy it and drive it! Search words: Triumph TR3 TR4 TR6 TR250 Austin Healey Sprite Midget Spitfire Herald MGA MGTD MGTF Fiat Alfa Romeo Jaguar Corvair
