This 1977 MGB is very dirty from its stay in a barn for the past 23 years, but with a thorough cleaning and some freshening it could make someone a fun affordable driver. The color combo may not be to everyone’s liking, but it does make this rubber bumper beater standout. Find it here on eBay in Woodstock, Georgia with a BIN of $3,500 and the option to make an offer.
Dirty but complete describes the interior. With a good steam cleaning of the carpets and a thorough polishing of the interior surfaces, someone has a chance to make this space livable again without throwing much money at it. The seats are another story though. They will definitely need replacing or recovering before anyone will want to sit in them.
The engine bay is as dirty as the interior but should clean up easily if the car is to be used as a driver, which makes sense for this car. These late rubber-bumper Bs are at the bottom of the pecking order in terms of value, and power was down from earlier years due to emissions controls, so doing a total restoration would easily exceed the value of the restored car. There are a number of photos of the underside showing what looks like very minimal surface rust here and there, so the car would probably not need structural repairs to be roadworthy.
There is no information on the systems, drivetrain, or mileage, and the car has not been run since it was stored 23 years ago so expect some work. Plan on cleaning and sealing the fuel tank. You will then want to replace all the fluids before attempting to start her up. If you can get her running you will want to go through the brakes before driving anywhere and we would also want to inspect all the wiring because the seller mentions that they found a squirrels nest in the door. It does roll, so removal on a trailer equipped with a winch will work. Buy it low, fix it cheap, and enjoy for as long as you can keep it running.
