1977 MG MGB

1977 MG MGB

The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed from 1962 until 1980 by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later the Austin-Morris division of British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top sports car. It was announced and its details first published on 19 September 1962. Replacing the MGA in 1962, production of the MGB and its variants continued until 1980.

A well maintained and upgraded car that has been garage kept during the duration of the consignor's ownership, we give you a visually very nice condition example of the B from 1977. Save for the large bumpers, (which was the Brit's way of getting around the 5 MPH law), and known as the phase 4 version, this car is a great little, nice running, sports car.

Exterior
1977 was the height of the crash bumpers and this car sports them in front and back, all black and ready for impact. Steel panels are bathed in nice metallic blue paint which is in good condition with a few chips, areas of rust bubbling under the paint and notable dents to the front lower valance. Chrome trimmings are good and shiny, and the rubber seals all are supple. The top on this car is fairly tight but does show some wrinkling from being in the down position, and rear windows are clear with no clouding. A top boot is included as is a cockpit cover for those days when the clouds roll in. A shout out to the British luggage rack for outings that require an overnight stay. MG rally style wheels are on all 4 corners and show similar to Magnum 500 wheels.

Interior
A swing of the doors and we have black vinyl for the door panels. This is showing a bit wrinkled and is peppered with black knobs and pulls and aftermarket speakers. The buckets are in black vinyl with a tuck and roll pattern to compliment the textured grain. The original dash is upfront and in splendid condition. Overall, in very nice condition with original gauges and a nice center console in black with a cup holder inlay, an ashtray and the shift lever with its decidedly British wood knob topper. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD player hangs above the HVAC controls. Black carpet covers the floors, and nice black MG logo mats cover the carpet. A peek into the trunk and it has been completely redone and holds the spare wheel and tire and jack assembly.

Drivetrain
Popping the bonnet, an 1800cc 4 popper is neatly tucked into the clean engine bay. The original SU carbs and intake have been rebuilt to work properly and are topped with K&N air filters. A 4-speed manual transmission with a newer clutch and slave cylinder sends power back to the 3.90 geared rear axle.

Undercarriage
Nice clean and surface rust free underneath with only minor surface rust on the suspension components. Independent coil springs and leaf springs make up the suspension with newer bushings and newer front disc brakes and rear drums are on. A header feeds into the stock style exhaust system which snakes its way toward the rear of the car. A newer fuel tank is noted at the rear of this roadster

Drive-Ability
I squeezed in and was off to the races in a flash after a quick start and short warmup. Here it performed nicely, especially with the rebuilt carburetors, handled well, and was an overall comfortable drive. All functions were working at the time of our drive, but we did notice the horn would not honk. Thankfully my crack decoder and partner in crime has a big mouth to warn pedestrians in our path.

If you feel the need for some winding back road enjoyment, top-down fun in the sun, wind in your hair motoring then this car is the one for you. With all the upgrades and maintenance, you'll be saying Cheerio! on your next adventure.
