Original Limited Edition MGB, that was converted to a 3.9 liter Rover V8 and Rover 5 Speed Transmission. This Limited Edition V8 MGB is absolutely stunning in every way and is certainly one of a kind. It's very quick, very quiet V8 rumble and very comfortable to drive. The Rover V8 sounds amazing under full throttle! The Rover Engine is sourced from a low mileage Land Rover Discovery (extremely tight, CLEAN engine. Oil is absolutely clean). The Rover 5 Speed Transmission was rebuilt and is also very tight along with the U-Joints on the Heavy Duty Drive-shaft.
This custom made Tan interior with Black piping is truly one of a kind and is not a kit. ALL pieces match, including: Shift Boot, Center Arm Console Lid, rear surround Aluminum Covered Trim Piece (This is the long thin piece that surrounds the top part of the body that runs around the convertible top area. This piece is always overlooked.), Front Kick Panels, Door Panels, Rear Kick Panels and Rear Panel. This specially made interior is extremely plush and luxurious. The windshield is also restored, an item that is usually overlooked, we pay special attention to this high visible piece on the MGB and make it even better than original. The windshield frame is chromed which ties the side vent windows together nicely since they're polished stainless steel. All seals are replaced along with a new windshield installed.
All of the following items were replaced NEW during the full restoration: Gear Reduction High Torque Starter, TVR Oil Pump Cover Relocation Kit, Oil Hoses and Fittings (makes for a very easy oil filter change and use of a very large oil filter), Modified Speedometer Cable (to mate up to original MGB Tach to Rover 5 Speed Transmission), Original MGB GT V8 Radiator, Flex-a-lite Wide Blade Flex Fan, Water Pump, Top and Bottom Radiator Hoses, Fan Belt, Edelbrock 500 Carb with Electric Choke, Edelbrock Performer Intake Manifold, MGB Temp Switch, Low Rider Air Cleaner, Edelbrock Throttle Cable Bracket Set Up, MGB throttle cable, MGB heater Valve (with modified bracket mounted to Edelbrock intake manifold), Engine and Transmission mounts, PerTronix Flame Thrower Distributor with Ignitor II Module, Flame Thrower Coil, O.E.M.
