Out of State Member 1977 MGB I am the third owner of this local San Francisco Bay area 1977 MGB with 53,300 miles on the odometer. It sports its original sandglow paint with professionally-installed autumn leaf seating, as the original seating surfaces were somewhat faded. I had a local restoration MG shop add an MGB overdrive transmission purchased from another club member out here. At the same time the engine was removed, the side tappet cover gaskets were replaced along with the motor mounts, some hoses, and anything else we could find that needed attention. No other engine work involving any disassembly of the engine occurred or was needed. I also replaced the springs to refresh the suspension along with new bushings and added new Michelin tires. I have the receipts for the repairs performed on the car since new. The car has been garage-kept for many years. If someone is looking for a very clean and well-maintained MGB with a history, please contact me. Price negotiable Ellis Brenner, San Francisco, CA.
