Pininfarina Green: 1969 MG MGB GT
The MGB GT is a fastback version of the convertible MGB that was built from 1973 through 1976. The B GT continues to be a fantastic bargain for a car with a Pininfarina roof and proper classic car credentials. I’d have expected these to increase in price with similar things from the era like Porsche 914/912, Datsun 240Z, Ford Mustang Fastback, Triumph TR etc…but you can still get them for reasonable amount of money. Find this 1969 MG MGB GT offered for $7900 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.

So The Reason For Selling This Car
I’ve obtained this car through a trade for another car I sold only been in my possession since about two weeks…..
1969 MG MGB GT
It was restored about five years ago as much as I know about the car is what I was told from previous owner the motor is a four-cylinder with a five speed manual transmission the car does run start drive shifts I did add a electric fuel pump and the battery those are the only repairs I have done it does need a little bit TLC tender loving care to make the final finishes it isn’t a far ways to go The body is pretty straight no signs of rust on the frame the frame is beautiful body is clean paint it’s great for being what it is….
The vehicle is located in Fresno California and I could be available seven days a week from 9 to 6 please have cash ready I have a clean title in hand California pink slip if you need help with someone for towing I do have a friend that does transporting it helps any

Good deal if it’s legit, but it seems priced in the “too good to be true” range. If I had room I’d make a call and go check it out.
Has a copper vacuum line. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
That intake manifold seems optimized for low rpm torque and if it really has a 5 speed I wonder what it is. If it’s set up for low rpm grunt and cruising the lack of air filtration seems odd.
Seller is in the Bay Area but the car is in Fresno? Seems if it were drivable it would be easier to sell if the seller drove it north.
5 speed from a Datsun B210 is a common upgrade. An original overdrive would be preferable.
If this is a truly “no rust” car, its definitely worth the asking. Great alternatives to older British coupes that have soared in price. Wish I had the space and time as these are definitely on my bucket list and I am not even a british car fan…
I’d love to find a shell of an MGB GT and hang it on my living room wall. These cars are so small I’d be terrified to drive them on the road but I would love to sit in my Eames Lounge Chair and sip bourbon whilst gazing upon a Pininfarina-penned hot hatch. And yes, I am obviously recently divorced. Which explains why I cannot currently afford an Eames Lounge Chair, an MGB GT, or even a bottle of bourbon.
Hilarious. That’ll teach you! Still a nice MGCGT would solve the power problem. As for fear of your ex wifes SUV….just stay ahead of her!
Back to the car.What’s with the funky mirrors? Does the drivers door look like it doesn;t close properly…like the bottom metal is deformed? Who put the five speed in it? Perhaps its a 4 speed with overdrive?The plates are from the mid to late nineties. Where did the car come from? Who redid the seats. Is this a Sgt Schultz deal or what?
Extra turn signal on the driver side front fender too.
Updated with 5 speed, probably from a Datsun B210, and 12 volt battery. It originally had 2 6 volt batteries.
