1979 MGB Rubber Bumper Project CarGarage KeptSolid body and frame
Body is in great shape. Garage kept most of its life (has been outside only the last few months. Under cover when it has been outside). Does not run. Engine will need to be replaced. However, motor does roll over. I do not know what exactly is wrong with the motor. I was told by previous owner that it will need to be replaced. Top has not been removed from the cover in years, so do not know what it looks like. Solid body to begin a nice rebuild with.I do not believe that this is the OD model.
Car will need to be towed on a trailer. Actual mileage may vary slightly.
In the photos, you may see some dark spots on the paint. This is due to residue from a tarp that was placed on the car. It comes off quite easily.
This is a great project car. I just do not have the time with kids' college, etc. to take it on. I hope it goes to a great home.
Please send any questions. I want you to be clear on what you are bidding on.
This is a project car. It will need work, but it will be a great car when it is redone.
