Free Dust and Spiderwebs: 1969 MGB GT

1969 MGB GT

This solid-looking MGB-GT is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico and is offered here on craigslist for $2,500. I know Jesse has just purchased a B-GT and I’ve looked at them many times but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. This one apparently ran until someone hooked up the battery incorrectly; now it needs an alternator and some ignition components. The last time it ran was 6 years ago. Having done that once on a Triumph, I’m glad nothing more serious happened! I like what appears to be a straight hood, period fog lamps and the wire wheels. The seller’s offer of “free dust and spiderwebs” had me laughing out loud! I know I’d be all over this one if it were close! How about you?

    Looks good to me. Chrome car, wire wheels. All there. Priced right. Too far for me, but I see potential.

    One of my favorite MG models. pricing may be correct based on the actual condition of the car. Just because its in New Mexico, it doesn’t mean that the car is rust free. I bought an Arizona AR Spider that looked great, until we got it up in the air and noticed a rusted through floor pan on the passanger side. Apparently water was entering the car on the right side …

    If this was for sale in a few months time, I could find myself on a plane to come and get it. An early chrome car, unmolested, and at a reasonable price. Nothing mechanical to worry about, it is a B so its simple. And available at reasonable cost. Arizona dry climate equals little rust to me too…..I could get excited!

    I really like these GT’s. I had a 67 GT “Special” once, which was one of the first 1000 GT’s imported to the US. Styling is so good. I think this one would be a good project.

    It was a good deal! It’s gone as of 1430.

    Top Tip:
    if you have a dusty classic and a few almost empty WD40 Cans empty them onto the dust and once the dust is impregnated it will repel water and help preserve bare metal.

    When and if you wash it off use a hose first to avoid damage to the paintwork.
