This solid MGB was located by the former owners with an MG service specialist in the Santa Ana, CA area where it was restored both mechanically and cosmetically in approximately 2010. The battery system has been converted to a single, negative ground 12-volt set-up along with an alternator charging system. And the factory disc brakes were upfitted with a vacuum power booster and dual circuit master cylinder, while an auxiliary engine oil cooler and 6-blade fan help keep things cool under the hood. It would sell to new owners in October 2017 in Elizabethtown, PA where it would remain until the summer of 2021 when it traveled to a prominent collector here in St. Louis. It continues to drive terrifically with approximately 3,000 miles on the rebuilt drivetrain! A brand new convertible top was just installed in March 2022.
These late Mark I examples are extremely sought after, and the attractive chrome-bumpered 1966 model has been considered one of the most desired. They feature push-button door handles, retain the original style steel dash with toggle switches, have larger 12-gallon fuel tanks, and utilize an electronic tachometer. This example will be sold with an owner's manual and radio instructions. Please call with any questions or to arrange a personal inspection! Thanks for looking!
