V6 Project: 1976 MG MGB

The MGB was built by MG (Morris Garages) Cars in England back when the British Empire produced products for export other than loud mouthed food critics, loud mouthed automobile pundits, naked royals and eavesdropping newspapers. The MGB survived with only minor cosmetic changes from 1962 through 1980 by being good at what it did. It was a good two seat roadster that offered great quality and driving experience for a product from the 1960s…which is why it went out of production in the 1980s. Times changed and the MGB didn’t…other than to become uglier, slower and less desirable. Regardless the MGB still is a great platform on which to build your own version of the AC Cobra, but its small engine bay size makes it perfect for V6 conversions. Find this 1976 MG MGB offered for $1750 in Vernon, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
