1968 MG B (SOLD)

...incredibly straight body with older primrose paint...what is great is the door and panel fit, the total lack of bondo bubbles or cracks, and the overall exterior 'look' of the car is unusually good. There is no better way to buy an older car (in this case, forty years old) than with either original or very old paint. If nothing is coming through now, it will never come through.
Car has covered 61,000 miles since new, has all new brakes, new radials, quiet exhaust, everything works electrically, factory oil cooler, original (classic) steering wheel, all gauges work fine, has new seat belts, and starts instantly, runs perfectly.
60 psi oil pressure when warm, no smoke, brand new clutch (and resurfaced flywheel), excellent 4 speed all synchro trans, nicely painted wire wheels, redone seats, new interior and trunk carpets, new door seals, v.g. chrome and trim, nice and clean underneath, new handbrake cable, overall a nice MGB.
I am a former owner of a '68 and find it to be one of the best years for a 'B.' Granted, the less than ideal dash but in every other way a superior car. No real emission equipment and, thus, a smooth powerful engine. Unlike the 1967 (and earlier) cars, has the better all synchro trans, alternator, dual master cylinder, negative ground, controls on the stalks, easier to own and operate.
Top is relatively new, has the boot cover and tonneau, runs and drive with the best.
