Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1977 MG MGB has gone through an extensive restoration from 2017 to 2020. The result is a fresh look everywhere from the piano black paint to the detailed rebuilt motor. It makes for an awesomely presented European drop-top that upgrades all the best parts while never losing the value price.
This one is a stunner, and it starts with the paint. We're told it was taken down to bare metal for the restoration, and the level of quality reaffirms it. The sleek black paint has ultra-smooth sheet metal so that the sunlight can roll evenly across the MG's iconic lines. And the clean rubber bumpers, full mud guards, and customized Rostyle wheels add to the dark and detailed style. All this darkness also draws your eye to that very distinctive white racing stripe placed over the top. And the investment in a quality total presentation is proven right down to the new full-length side trim and classic stone guards for the headlights.
The new black convertible roof looks great against the black exterior, and the MGB gives you proper roll-up windows to seal out the weather. But really, we all know these were made to let the sunshine in. This one does it better than most. After all, you know only get more of the clean black style inside, but everyone's attention will really be on the lumber. It's a hand-made Zebrawood setup that unites the door panels, dash, wheel, and center console. Even the trunk is a tasteful custom setup. You'll also appreciate the little things, like the taut tonneau cover over the convertible top and an additional wood panel to go over the modern AM/FM/CD stereo when it's not in use. And while the style is unique, this never loses that terrific driver-oriented feeling of a comfortable bucket seat, well-placed shifter, grippy steering wheel, and a crisp/clean set of full gauges.
When you open the hood, you're reminded that this full restoration included the engine bay. All that purple and gold look awesome, and it also hints at the level of work that went into this one. The motor was pulled out not only for paint, but it also was given a new head gasket and piston rings in 2020. It also has a long list of new components like the fuel sending unit, fuel pump, lines, electronic ignition, plugs, wires, and Weber carburetor. There are plenty more investments, so call for the full details. The four-speed manual transmission also has a new clutch, bearing, and slave cylinder. So you have a motor that fires up eagerly and a full package that really lets you confidently hit the road. And the updated suspension with new shocks, bushings, brake booster, and front discs maximizes the MGB's nimble feeling on the road.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and a bra to protect the front end from stone chips. There have been all the right investments to deliver a sharp-looking and sharp-driving MG. So you know you can't let this affordable drop-top slip away. Call today!!!
