Non-Member - 1972 MGB for sale.
73,000 miles, driven every summer. I originally purchased this car from O'Connor Classic Cars in Santa Clara, California and have owned it for over 20 years. Finally decided that a summer-only car is not practical in Wisconsin and I'm ready to let it go. This car, which is unrestored, has always been stored inside. Just had a new fuel pump installed. Tachometer hasn't worked for years, but who needs it?! $5000.00 includes hardtop (ragtop is very sun-damaged and torn) and shop manuals. Phone Ann, 262.879.5521 (work number) or -Southeastern Wisconsin, near Milwaukee

Very good condition mechanically & structurally. Rebuilt engine, carbs, transmission (4-speed), just about everything mechanically has been replaced including brakes, shocks, fuel pump, tires, ect. Engine has less than 7,500 miles since rebuild, runs great! All the lights and gauges work, 83,000 miles. Body is solid but has the typical rust areas, paint is so-so. Always garaged. No cracks in the dash, seats are OK, carpet needs replacing. Asking $3,500 or best offer. ContactTed, 847.644.3330,

Very early car with special-order tuxedo black paint, red interior and wide white-walls per BMIHT certificate. Solid California car needing complete restoration inside and out, not running but it’s 100% complete. Clear, undated California title. Only rust is in floor pans – doors, rockers, etc. are extremely solid. These are interesting and very rare cars now. MGCC believes there to be no more than 50 left world-wide!? Uses mostly Austin-America and/or Mini Cooper mechanicals. I paid $1250 for the car, another $1000 to haul it back to Illinois, and have another $1500+ invested in mostly hard-to-find NOS parts and trim, including grille, NOS hub caps, exterior lights and BRAND-NEW 12” radial tires – even some sheet metal. I would like to just get my initial purchase price back as I have a Midget project to complete. To a good MG home only. Many, many pictures available on request.
