Vehicle Story

This 1973 MG MGB MKIII roadster shows approximately 98,000 miles on the odometer and was the recipient of an older frame-up restoration completed in 1986. Powered by the original 1.8L inline-4 mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, the car is equipped with an AM/FM radio, aftermarket stereo speakers, heater/defroster and electronic overdrive. Located in Eliot, Maine, this chrome bumper 1973 MGB is offered for sale with tonneau and boot covers and a binder full of photos and documentation of its history as well as clean Maine title in the seller's name. 

As part of the 1986 restoration, the body was taken down to bare metal and repainted in Harvest Gold (BLVC19) accented by chrome bumpers front and rear and a black fabric top which is noted to have a minor tear on the passenger side and a small leak in heavy rain. Tonneau and boot covers are included in the sale and the seller notes a few minor chips and dings remain in the body and paintwork after repairs were complete in 1992. 

Steering is manual and factory 14-inch wire wheels are fitted with a set of 185/70 Michelin tires over mechanical dual-circuit 11-inch front disc brakes and rear drums. 

The interior is outfitted in black featuring vinyl upholstery over bucket seating, black carpeting, and matching dash and door panels. The stereo system is aftermarket with speakers mounted on the transmission tunnel but noted to be non-functional at this time. Electronic overdrive is equipped and able to be engaged in third and fourth gear by way of an operable arm on the right-hand side of the steering column.  

Instrumentation is framed by a 3-spoke steering wheel and includes a 120-mph speedometer and 7k-rpm tachometer as well as dials for fuel level, coolant temperature and oil pressure. Odometer mileage is reported to be approximately 98,000 miles.

Twin 38mm SU carburetors are fitted and said to be original along with the 1798cc inline-4 cylinder and 4-speed overdrive manual transmission. Documentation shows that the drivetrain was removed during the 1986 overhaul to replace and align the clutch and have the flywheel resurfaced. Less than 20% of all MGB's produced were fitted with the optional Laycock overdrive system which is confirmed to work properly in this example. 

Additional photos of the underside detailing the condition of the suspension and exhaust systems can be found in the gallery. 

A binder complete with photos and documentation from the1986 restoration is included in the sale.

@jasper – Why are you selling? ...

It isn’t a practical car for me due to its size and makes it difficult for my wife to get in and out of due to having bad knees.
