4610 Pet Lane
Rarely is a head-turning classic drop-top so affordable. This 1973 MGB convertible has been restored to have a distinct style and an extra-comfy interior, but it never loses that quintessential spirit that makes these irresistible to take out on every sunny day.
This is the chrome lover's MGB. Not only is this an earlier model with the bright bumpers and grille, but also this keeps everything looking great so the side trim follows the European curves like an unbroken line. Bright chrome bumpers, a classic luggage rack, and even polished exhaust tips are part of a great shining package. The green paint is distinct, and it goes great against the rarely-seen tan folding top. Picky owners may take some of the leftover money from the value price to invest in a respray, but many of us also find virtue in a driver-ready paint that won't make you envious about taking any road. That's the point of a driver's car, and this one shows that kind of style, right down to the Minilite-style wheels.
Since the tan roof looks so distinctive, you'll be happy to see that when you take it down there's a full tan interior waiting for you. This one continues to show it's out to be a car you're going to enjoy with upgrades like upgraded seats with terrific bolstering, plush carpeting, and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input for your iPod. Even the trunk is nicely finished with working light and a full-size spare. The glossy wood on the gearshift and sports steering wheel give you the right classic British sports car feeling in your hands. And the Smiths gauges have the crisp and clean look you love.
The engine bay has an ultra-tidy presentation. It not only makes it great to show off, but you can also easily spot the upgrades to this 1798cc four-cylinder motor. It now has a Weber carburetor Pierce intake, MSD Blaster coil, Cobalt plug wires, and a header feeding into the exhaust. It fires up with the ease you'd expect from such a well-presented motor. The dignified sound of the powerplant, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling are some of this car's many virtues. There is a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to front disc brakes and modern tires.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records and service manuals. Affordability and attractiveness are available right now in a turn-key package, so why go another weekend without this gem in your life? Call today!!!
