Red Rover Red Rover: 1977 MG B V8

This next car came with a certain amount of deja vu.  Did we already feature this car? Or have we simply seen so many Rover V8 powered MGBs that my brain has become a fog of classic British steel and aluminum alloy?  I guess this is a new entry into the world of V8 powered MGs…but I dunno. Find this 1977 MG B V8 offered for $10,500 CAD ($7,536 USD) in Courtice, ON, Canada via Tip from Erik202.

From the seller:


MGB V8 in amazing condition in and out. Powered by a Rover 3.5 litre 215 ci engine. It has a 5 speed LT77 gearbox and a Ford 9” rear end. Tires are brand new. Dual free flow exhaust sounds mean. A factory MGB Works hardtop is also included. It also comes with an extra windshield and frame. I will certify the car for a serious buyer with deposit. Rare car that’s not easily found.
