Technical data for 1971 MG MGB
|Engine:||1.8 Liter I4|
There aren't many better ways to get into a British roadster than this 1971 MGB convertible. A product of a long-term restoration, you get great looks, newer components, and that amazing European roadster feeling all for a very affordable price.
This is the chrome lover's MGB. Not only is this an earlier model with the bright bumpers and grille, but also this restored roadster keeps everything looking great so the side trim line follows the European curves in an unbroken line. In fact, you can really tell the difference a decade-long restoration produces every time you check yourself out in the mirror-like chrome bumpers. But as great as that is, nothing beats a set of proper wire wheels with knock-off caps when you want a pure British motorcar appearance. Best of all, it's set in a modern and deep red. And we know that a bright clearcoat color like this is exactly how you want to be seen on every sunny day.
Beneath the crisp black convertible top is a great black interior. You can tell plenty was invested inside from the moment you lay eyes on the bucket seats that offer nice bolstering for all-day comfort. The carpeting, dash, and door panels, also carry this fresh feeling. But the interior is far from a completely dark affair. The wood on the gearshift knob and surrounding the upgraded sports steering wheel give this real British warmth. And as a true driver's car, you get a full set of Smiths gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. It all combines for that prefect package where everything is at your fingertips, and you begin to understand why other people take the long way home.
While you can already tell how fresh the restoration is by the interior and exterior, the engine bay might just be where you appreciate it the most. After all, the presentation of the 1.8-liter and its twin carbs looks the best when everything looks so crisp from the strong braided hoses to the fresh paint on the block. But the true worth of the investment in this MGB is out on the road. You'll love the confidence this classic gives you as you take full control of the rev-happy motor with the four-speed manual transmission and the poise of front disc brakes.
