1974 MG MGB Description:

To the best of my knowledge: This 1974 MGB (2-seater, Tourer) is the last year of chrome bumper MGB's. It has the Leland 1798 cc, 5 main bearing, vertical, inline, MK3 engine and a full synchro, manual, 4-speed transmission (i.e, it runs great and shifts like a dream). The car was manufactured in September of 1973 (the 50th birthday of the car is September of 2023). The original color was the rare grey color. The Tonneau Cover with Headrests and Convertible Top Boot appear to be original to the car. A small 1 in by 1 in patch is nicely sewn to the boot cover.
It has a new battery (2023), Repairs in 2020 include new top, new brake cylinder, new slave clutch cylinder, new rear brake lines, odometer cable, turn indicator switch, new clutch hose, and steering boot kit. In 2016 I had the twinSU carbs replaced by aWeber carb kit, fuel pump, front brake hoses. The SU's and other parts, manuals, etc. go with the car.
I found the car in a barn behind the Thorsby home in Thorsby, Alabama in 2011. It had been in the barn for 10 years. I was told by the owner that she purchased it from the original owner, a doctor in Atlanta, GA.The second owner had it painted red. The odometer cable was broken when I bought the car so the actual mileage is unknown. There is a loose connection in the windsheild wiper system. I think it is the switch or connection to the switch. I've not replaced it because I don't drive or park in the rain. It hasn't been in the rain since before 2001, if then. Windsheild washer is not working.
The interior is in good condition. Its fun to drive. Handles great. Looks fantastic from 20 feet. Its mechanically simple, and easy to keep running. It does not require any special fuel, but I run ethanol-free, regular gasoline in it.
