10k: Supercharged: 1967 MG MGB GT

 The MGB has been a frequent visitor on these pages, so much you might think we’ve gotten out of hand, but this next one is just too good to pass up.  Another V8 swap? An MGBcamino?  No, this one is a little more subtle, and while it looks just like your average MGB GT from the outside, it has a surprise under the hood.  Find this 1967 MG MGB GT with Moss Motors blower offered for $9,500 in Malvern, PA via craigslist. Tip from Fuel Truck.

 

Although bitten by the MGB bug many times, I’ve never taken one home from the pound, but back in the corner of my mind I’ve always thought I’d budget for a Moss Motors supercharger with any purchase.  At $4k retail they run about as much as a beater MGB, but the 50% increase in horsepower/torque to the rear wheels is going to be appreciated every time you get behind the wheel.

The little 1.8 liter inline-4 pushes out around 90ish horsepower at the crankshaft, but adding the puffer increases it to about 140.  You will also notice the 70% increase in torque around 2000 rpm but the idle quality, NVH, and other issues normally associated with performance engines will be absent.

The interior of this MGB GT looks a bit tired, but you can get all manner of replacement interior parts from Moss Motors or other online sellers.
