Volkswagen Powered? 1969 MG MGB

I typically don’t feature cars that have already sold (because DT is here to help you find your next ride, not just glorify El Caminos)…but sometimes there is a car that has sold before I can put up a feature. And sometimes that car is so utterly perplexing that I’VE GOT TO POST IT!! This is one of those cars. An MGB that is powered by a rear mounted Volkswagen Beetle engine and some other people parts too. How does that even work? What do you tell the man at the Autozone counter when he asks year/make/model? William Morris must be rolling over in his grave! Find this 1969 MG MGB that was offered for $7000 in Baldwin Park, CA via ebay motors. Tip from Rock On & Hugh!
