Nissan SR20 Power: 1964 MG MGB

The MGB was built by MG (Morris Garages) Cars in England back when the British Empire produced things for export other than loud mouthed food critics, loud mouthed automobile pundits, or naked royals. The classic MGB survived with only minor cosmetic changes from 1962 through 1980 by being good at what it did. Today’s MGB however, hasn’t survived the years with only small changes because someone decided to drop one of Nissan’s legendary SR20 inline-4s under the hood. Find this 1964 MG MGB offered for $15000 in Manhattan Beach, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

— no rush to sell, I have few other projects I’m doing, and this one sits in my garage, I I would prefer cash. But if you have a classic car for trade I wouldn’t mind looking at it. (Cars must be running)
