Description:

There aren''t many better ways to get into a British Racing Green roadster than this 1970 MGB. Classic good looks in a car that doesn''t cost a fortune to acquire or maintain, it''s the ideal vintage roadster for the purist who prefers the old fashioned way of doing things. Sure, the B was archaic by 1970, but that''s all part of its charm, and with delicate chrome bumpers, the early cars have an entirely different look than their rubber-snouted younger siblings. With that in mind, this 1970 model is the one you want: rust free, fully finished, with all the good stuff already on board. The British Racing Green paint looks fantastic and the bodywork underneath is quite nice, too, with straight panels and no sign of the dreaded tin worm, for which these cars were notorious. The doors fit well, the hood opens effortlessly, and there''s a jaunty luggage rack out back to give you a little extra capacity for long trips. Of course, those chrome bumpers which make this one of the more desirable Bs are in excellent shape, as is the grille, which is protected by a set of rubber-lined bumper guards that actually look quite sporting. Classic accommodations for two can be found inside the cozy MGB, but once you''re behind the wheel you''ll discover that there''s plenty of room and the driving position is quite good. The steering wheel looks suitably racy and will go great with your string-backed driving gloves, and the shifter falls readily to hand under spirited driving. Wood was gone by 1970, but the classic Smiths instruments remain, giving a tantalizing glimpse into history. The black bucket seats are comfortable and supportive for spirited driving, and while the engine''s energetic exhaust note was reportedly copied by Mazda for the original Miata, you may also enjoy the sounds of the new AM/FM/CD stereo system. The trunk is spartan, but carries a matching wire wheel and spare tire, a battery, and a spectacularly rust-free floor, which is really the most important thing. The engine is the same rugged, reliable 1798 cc inline-four that propelled MGs for years, but why mess with a good thing. Thanks to a single carburetor and basic ignition system, maintenance can be performed with a screwdriver, and it has a satisfyingly fat torque curve that makes the car feel fast around town. It''s nicely restored under the bonnet, too, with lots of new gear, correct finishes, and a look of having been loved all its life. The 4-speed manual overdrive is a joy to shift, especially with pedals easily placed for heel-and-toe maneuvers. Braking is confident and handling competent thanks to the car''s size and low center of gravity. And, of course, gorgeous wire wheels have been fitted wearing 185/70/14 Cooper radials which are surely worlds better than the original Dunlops. There''s no better way to have fun with the top down than a vintage British roadster. Take this MGB home today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
