Not Bad At All: 1972 MGB GT
I’ve got a formula for my perfect classic car — it goes like this; No serious rust, driveable home, spare parts included, interior that won’t make my wife scream, trim mostly good, about $5k. Yeah…not much on craigslist matches those requirements…BUT this next car is spot on. Find this 1972 MGB GT offered for $5000 in Mesa, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
From the seller:
Starts right up, good brakes, new clutch master cylinder/slave cylinder, new points/condenser/plugs. Glass is all perfect, windows roll up and down. Good looking interior. Currently registered, clean title in my name.
Straight metal, no rust holes. Some spare parts and manual included.
$5000 obo, text before calling, thanks!

It's happening!!! as all the old guys who wanted these die off, the prices (and demand) is going down!
Seriously – you can't get a much cooler/prettier classic for $5k these days. I did just find a '71 GT for $3995; better color, but needs a bunch more work. Claimed one-owner being sold by a dealer.
There are not many easier-to-live-with classics than an MGB-GT. I wonder what that colour looks like in the sunlight?
I will submit an Amazon/122s being similarly if not easier to live with.
Love the color. When I was a child on our farm my grandfather had 3 GMC CCKW army surplus trucks all painted this color. I think he had a couple 50 gallon drums of paint this color that trucks, tractors, houses, signs, and anything else that needed paint got covered with. Love that color.
Looks suspiciously like the one I picked up after seeing it here a couple years back; I honestly had to do a double take.
Yeah, my seller said “no rust”, also. And the rockers and doglegs were totally shot, underneath the very pretty, very convincing fiberglass work. Bring a magnet with you, is all I’m saying.
