1978 MG MGB description

1978 MGB Convertible Roadster with Factory Hardtop


Rare, vintage British sports car in great condition.


This car was fully restored in 2001. It was driven occasionally until 2010 when it was put into dry storage in running condition. This MGB is a ton of fun to drive but it needs someone with the time to take it out and enjoy regularly. It will take little effort to restore this classic once again.


  • The engine has a Weber carburetor with electronic choke, performance exhaust header and free flow performance exhaust.

  • The head was overhauled and a Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition conversion was installed.

  • Many other components were renewed and extras installed.

  • Original MBG rims

  • Wide tires in good condition and great for cornering.

  • Paint is a beautiful metallic grey in good condition.

  • Interior is original aside from all new black carpeting

  • Tounea cover

  • Original hard top is included.

  • Under 50,000 miles.
