Cherry Red: 1967 MG MGB

The MGB is one of the better classic British roadsters, because it combines good looks, composed handling, and rugged build quality. The B won't be the fastest car on the road, but it'll get you to your destination with minimum fuss, and today's example is cherry! Find this 1967 MG MGB offered for $6800 in Highlands, TX via craigslist.

  1. Why does the speedo show 77K miles?

    1. 77,000 miles per hour would be really optimistic for an MGB. Oh. The odo...not the speedo.

  2. I do like these but the workshop manual being bigger then driver's manual might be a clue of what is to come....!

  3. That's sweet. I'm glad its in Tejas. Dont bother me with questions, it's perfect. Hmmmmm. I wonder if a certain loudmouth with a spray on tan with owl eyes and ridiculous hairdo is the owner.

  4. MG's are great cars.

    The BEST ride in an MG is when a friend owns it.

    It's a blast.

    And you never have to worry about the next time it breaks (which, hopefully, won't be during your ride).

    Because when you spend more of your time looking at the car as a really cool paperweight, the passion kinda fades...

  5. There is a ton of stuff incorrect/changed with this car, but if it's mechanically sorted, it's a pretty decent deal on a chrome bumper MGB at that price. Just be really careful to check the VIN against a decoder because there's a lot I see with this car that makes me question it being a '67 vs. a '68 or '69. Not a big deal, but it does affect value and desirability, not to mention potential title shenanigans.

  6. The photo of the open engine compartment speaks volumes about the paint. Lots of paint is where it should not be, with sags etc. What is it about paint shops that they will spend hours upon hours sanding, but but can't spend an extra twenty minutes masking and removing bits like the latch and the hood springs.
