Here we have a lovely 1978 MGB roadster. A rust free, accident free, California car. Purchased by the current owner from a California dealer in 2011, this MGB has been regularly serviced and well maintained since its purchase.
With a turn of the key this MGB starts right up without hesitation. The automatic choke works properly, and though you need to baby it a bit at cold, when it starts to warm up it just drives so nicely. Shifting through gears is nice and smooth as it should be. The brakes are firm and upon braking this roadster pulls up nice and straight. The suspension is sound without any unwanted knocks and bonks as your driving. The steering is tight without vibration.
The interior is very tidy and complete. The black vinyl seats are in very good condition without rips or tears through the seams. The dash is complete with all gauges in working order, however there is some minor cracking to the dash. The indicators work and self cancel, along with the headlights and sidelights. The wipers work, and the push horn works as well. The black carpeting throughout is in really great condition, and the door panels are in decent condition but they do show some wear. The drivers’ and passengers’ window roll up and down properly and all glass is clear without cracks. The convertible top is excellent, aside from a small tear on the passengers’ side, the convertible top is practically new. The trunk space is tidy and complete with spare wire wheel, car cover, and SNAN jump starter which all come with the sale of the car.
The exterior has been painted classic British Racing Green and is in ok condition with some cracking and chipping of the paint in places of constant wear, but nothing too eye catching. The body is nice and straight and the front and rear rubber bumpers are in good condition. The chrome trim is shiny and complete. The wire wheels are in good shape and the tires have plenty of life left in them.
Overall this is a beautiful example of an MGB roadster. I can’t stress enough how nicely this car runs. If you’re looking for a solid MG to drive around town and enjoy then look no farther because this is the one. As always I would advise inspecting the car in person if at all possible.
