Year: 1978

MG B Roadster


Stock # NE-1978-2


Just in.....a rust free Southern car, perfect ORIGINAL floors, excellent body, beautiful in bright red with new tan interior. And note the detail work: we did a lot of disassembly and masking on the dash and they did dye work to match the interior. With the result be a lovely interior and looking like a far more expensive car.

Has covered 78,000 miles from new.....1,800 miles a year. And like so many of our later model MGBs, more than likely to have been purchased from new as a 2nd or 3rd car. And garaged and babied from new.

So far, our tests....175-180 psi compression in every cylinder (higher than expected, could be a milled head), zero smoke, 65+ psi oil pressure. Perfect. Engine fitted with a new Weber carb, brakes all new (including wheel cylinders), new suspension bushings, pre 1975 ride height springs, new tie rod ends, wire wheels, fairly new radials, brand new top, tonneau, etc........

Just installed: new wood steering wheel, new stereo/CD with USB in/out, new speakers, a complete chrome bumper conversion (including removal of the side lights, filled with new metal, and blending the paint at all four corners) with all new chrome,. And a wonderful MGB, ready for seasonal driving.

Can't begin to convey how nice these cars are to drive. While ANY MGB is a nice driving sports car, these late model cars have better trans mounts, smoother engines, better gearboxes, sensational ride, and with the performance and aesthetics add ons we have installed, the result is really eye opening. Okay, doesn't do 0-60 in 4 seconds and doesn't generate the lateral forces of an old Fm III car. But lets face it, in a 55 mph environment, where 200 mph Lambos and Ferraris garner primarily bragging rights, having a fun English sports car makes more and more sense. After all, on the road, it isn't how fast you are going, rather, its how fast you THINK you are going.
