Wire Wheels: 1970 MG MGB GT

The MGB GT continues to be one of the cheapest ways to get into a Pininfarina styled fastback classic with racing pedigree and affordable parts. This is a rare example of a car with a price that hasn’t been appreciated into the stratosphere by hungry classic car stamp collectors and I couldn’t be happier. I just gotta get one before they become “cool” and the price goes nuts. Maybe I shouldn’t be talking about these things? Find this 1970 MG MGB GT offered for $9000 in Dublin, CA via craigslist.

I have an 1970 mgb gt pretty much complete has original wire wheel single lug with tubes, the original double carb tuned properly, great car runs perfectly has good compression oil pressure runs between 60 and 50. I Removed and plugged some of the pre smog nonsense on the motor and deleted the resonator from the exhaust to give it a little more natural bass in the sound but it is not obnoxious still has stock muffler. Always parked in the garage comes with custom car cover.

Can send more pictures on request.

Cons-
Needs a manual choke hard to start when cold the one installed is slacked out.

Brakes are not holding fluid so no power at the moment but I’ve driven it around using the gears to slow down. I’m not sure if it’s the booster or down the line. I planned on putting it on a lift and figuring it out but if someone else can do it even better.

Wiring there is a slow draw happening with the key off might be the stereo that someone tried to wire in I never dug deep into it so I removed the negative battery cable when I’m not driving it.
