This 1973 MGB has the instant appeal of a classic British drop-top with an obtainable price tag. But make sure you read about its unique and respected history, as well as the custom details of this example that make it one of the overall most attractive buys around.

This year MGB is often sought-after because it's one of the final years for metal bumpers. This one takes that interest up a notch by color-matching them to the car. And we can absolutely understand why. The very dark blue has a sophisticated tone that gets the car noticed. It was applied about 20 years ago, and the result is the shine of good care while also something that will never make you too nervous to drive it. In fact, the whole car is made to be driven. The story we're told is that this is only a two-owner car. The first owner was an employee of Virginia International Raceway. He has it on the road and then in storage up until 2014. At that point, the second owner took over the care and has been making the right investment in regular and professional service. So not only do you have an MG that looks distinctive, but it also loves to hit the road and show off its style.

The interior reminds you this is a driver's machine. Bucket seats, a well-placed gear stick, grippy sports steering wheel, and a full set of Smiths gauges make this a great European sports car. There are upgrades in comfort, like the cup holders and an AM/FM/CD stereo for better driving music. And while the current owner never drove the car in the rain, the proper folding soft top and full roll-up windows make it easy to get home if the weather turns wet. There's even a racing tonneau that comes with the sale, too.

The presentation under the hood is crisp, correct, and shows plenty of great care. In fact, when this car was coming out of storage, there was a solid investment in giving the motor a full overhaul. It included new pieces like the block paint, starter, gas tank, radiator, carburetor, and much more. Since then it has also been under professional care, including an annual check-up. So the 1798cc motor fires up eagerly, runs strong, and the four-speed transmission shifts smoothly. Plus, the light steering, nimble chassis, new suspension components, and control of front disc brakes are all part of a sharp driving machine. This even has newer tires on the classic Rostyle wheels.

The sale comes complete with service manuals and maintenance records. This is the distinct and respected drop-top classic you've always wanted, and the price will likely never be this within reach again. Call now!
