Vehicle Story

This 1975 MG MGB is said to benefit from the replacement of its convertible top and recovered vinyl seats, and is powered by what's described as a rebuilt BMC B-series 1.8-liter line-four mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Manufactured in England in February 1975, the car comes equipped with a chrome-finished luggage rack, a wooden shift knob, and a radio. Finished in tan over a refurbished brown vinyl interior, this 1975 MG MGB is offered with a vinyl tonneau cover and on a clear Oklahoma title in the seller’s name.

The MGB model debuted in 1962 from the British Motor Corporation and saw some cosmetic changes in the early 1970s, including the replacement of chrome bumpers with a larger impact-resistant design. This MGB saw the replacement of the black vinyl top recently. Brightwork is reported to be in good condition including the headlight rings, side moldings, windshield surround, and trunk-mounted luggage rack. 

Wire wheels measure 14” in diameter with hexagonal center caps and are wrapped in 185-section Kumho Solus tires.

The seats are described as original, but reported to have been recovered with replacement vinyl material. The door panels are trimmed in matching material while the black carpeting and padded dash add contrast. The shifter is fitted with a wood knob and a radio is present but not functioning. The trunk contains a spare tire as well as a wheel wrench.

Smiths gauges includes a 120-mph speedometer, a 7,000-rpm tachometer, and smaller instruments for fuel level, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The five-digit mechanical odometer shows 79k miles, but total chassis mileage is unknown.

The BMC B-series 1.8-liter pushrod inline-four developed 63 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 86 pound-feet of torque at 2,500, and is fueled by a single-barrel Zenith carburetor. The engine was rebuilt under prior ownership per the seller, who describes a leak. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive.

Photos showing the underside are available in the carousel.

The sale includes a vinyl tonneau cover, extra black carpeting and touch up paint.

@phild6969 – Im from UK and worked in a Leyland dealership as an apprentice . Im 99% sure that these cars ONLY came with twin carbs. The twin carbs can be a bit tough to synchronize but you can get there in the end. Seems to me somewhere in the past the manifold and carb setup must have been changed out. ...

When I read about the 1975 MGB in the US they were dialed back to meet the emission requirements and they added the rubber bumpers and changed the bunper height.

I am the current owner and I am selling the MGB because it is a car outside of my wheelhouse. I just found today several u-tube videos showing the car being bought at auction for a couple that had it stored for 16 years The video shows the car going thru a refurbishment to make it road worthy. The video is on Auto Auction Rebuild The updates that were done are 1. New larger 16 gal fuel tank 2. New fuel pump 3 New electronic ingintion 4 New spark plugs 5 New spark plug wires 6 New coil 7 Rebuilt original Caburator 8 New Carpet 9. New original door panels The car is not perfect but the video shows that it is original.

Can’t tell by the photos but does this have the dual carbs? I had a 1974 MGB that did and they ARE a pain the rear to synchronize once they are out of synchronization!
