Time to let my MGB go. I’m the 3rd owner, car was purchased new in High Point, NC, sold in 1971 to a gentleman in Lexington, NC. I purchased a few years back as a barn find and it’s a good driver now. Lots of character, and there just are not many of the Mark 1 cars on the road now.

The only rust on this vehicle was in a battery tray, and that’s been repaired. The paint is original and it looks 57 years old. They’re only original once. This is a good, honest little car you can stick a magnet to anyplace except the aluminum bonnet.

Mechanically, car is all dialed in. Engine is rebuilt, carbs have been properly set up, brakes are done, suspension is done, it has 5 new Firestones and a new wiring harness. The seat covers are genuine leather from Moss Motors. Seth Lehman at Elite Auto Restoration in Denver knows this car and did a ton of work on it.

New windshield, new top, new steering wheel, has a moss motors carpet kit that comes with it and all the stuff to make new door panels. New chrome body side moldings also come with it. Headlights and tail lights converted to LED. The horn and wipers even work!

I have a lot more in this gem than my asking price. Please don’t try to compare my car to a 1968 or later, they’re not the same. The Mk 1 is a metal dash car and a rare find.

Thanks for looking! Cash only, if the ad is still up the car is available.
