1973 MG MGB GTI've put a lot of work into this car, ut I already have way too many cars sitting around the house so I need to sell it.
This 1973 MGB GT drives well and gets great gas mileage. I was using this as my daily commuter until my daily commute became 40+ miles, nd I felt this car deserved better.
Features:Overdrive, ir Conditioning, uilt-in trickle charger, ir horns (the list goes on)
HistoryThis has mostly been a Florida car, purchased it from a man in NY who purchased it from a Floridian, don't know much past that.
Shipping and Payment:Deposit should be made through PayPal and the remainder should be paid in person at pickup. Buyer is responsible for pickup and delivery. (If you live in South Florida I'll drive it to you myself)
It has some minor rust spots that need repaired. I've tried to highlight them in the pictures. Overall though it is an absolutely gorgeous car that gets lots of attention.
