Beautiful 1974 MGB Roadster. This iconic British Roadster is a low mileage, original matching numbers, 2 owner car that was maintained and tuned by the legendary John Twist of University Motors. here / The car still bears his name plate on the engine.
The car is finished in the factory color Harvest Gold, over a black interior with a new black convertible top, boot cover and tonneau cover with original tonneau bars.
Only driven in good weather. Low 64,500 odometer miles are original and accurate to best of my knowledge. Accident free. Solid, honest car with no visible signs of serious corrosion. This UK convertible classic is very fun to drive - a great summer vehicle in good condition.
Although I am British, I am not an MG guy. I am selling this vehicle to fund my Vintage VW’s, which is my real passion. So please read the following info on the car, and ask all questions before bidding. I will try my best to answer them. Feel free to set up a time to see the car in person.
The previous owner, had the car for over 40 years. He restored it in 78/79 so this is an older restoration that still shows well. The paint is starting to show signs of wear & tear in places (shown in Photos). Worst is some paint cracking on the trunk and bubbling on the front driver’s rocker.
John Twist and his crew at University Motors were responsible for tuning the motor and maintaining the car over the years. Please do your research on John. He is a very knowledgeable guy!
Awesome interior. The dashboard and console are free from warping, with one small crack on the dash vertical face. Gauges are clear, and door panels are good, with original carpet set, and rubber mats,
This car has been well maintained. It has a very clean body for its age. As far as I can tell the frame and underneath is solid and in great shape. All chrome is good. It drives down the road fine, and everything seems to be in working order. The convertible top is in great shape and operates, as it should. All glass is original, however the windshield has a small crack in one corner that has been there since 1978 without spreading, so it’s purely cosmetic at this point, and does not obstruct the driver’s view of the road. Vent windows work fine. Door glass cranks up and down nice. All electrical seems good, wipers work fine, nice headlights, all lights work etc. Car has a working period correct stereo system that sounds good and has not been installed by cutting interior panels etc. All brakes work great including the parking break. Has all original wheels with new tires including the spare and has original jack also. Very cool OG tool kit and original unused distress flare! ... Texas license plate is just for show and does not come with the vehicle.
This MGB is a Non overdrive model. Overall, the car runs drives and sounds Awesome! – Great little sports car!
