This is my British
stuff page so the 1977 MGB is the one that I drive around in during the warmer months. It is presently not on the market
for sale. My 1977 MGB Special Edition fits easily in the very good condition category (NADA
guide at WWW.nadaguides.com) so these cars have a solid place in the collector car market.
I have recently put a rebuilt alternator back in the 77 and it is working fine. I have also finished putting
a new soft top on the car 2-22-2010.This 1977 MGB was gone over pretty well in 2004 when
I replaced the inner and outer rockers and any other metal that needed it and a reasonable
paint job was added. This is a MGB Special, so originally it had a MGB decal (silver)running horizontally
on each side and a luggage rack. I chose not to put the decal stripe back on, but I do have the new un-installed MGB side
decals. There is NO rust on this car. The car looks and runs well. Both of my MGBs have a Missouri Title and
there are antique auto plates on the 77. The 77 is not required to have regular inspections, but it has been inspected regularly
and all parts are up to safety standards for the year model. The engine is tight
and doesn't burn any oil, although there is small seal leak at valve cover gasket. All systems but the clock work
(it just stopped one day years ago) and I just installed a new antenna for the radio, so the radio now works fine, but speakers
could be upgraded. All of the other systems including the wheels, brakes and other safety systems are in good working order.
The car runs and drives well and was used regularly last summer, but I have put very few miles on in the last ten years. The
car has about 103955 miles on it at this time. This is the car that I drive around when I feel like a bit of British Motoring.
I have just installed a rebuilt alternator and it is working fine and the new soft top is now on. There really is nothing
quite like driving a real British sports car and the modern copies with all of their government mandated restrictions just
don't compare. I do enjoy driving it on spring, summer and fall days and there seems to
be more people who also enjoy working on and driving these classic cars. Summer will
get here some time, so soon it will be time for putz around on the old car. This 1977 MGB
Roadster Special is presently off of the market, but of course that could change. I have decided to pare
down on a lot of "stuff", so I got rid of my two spitfires and my 76 Bonneville motorcycle and
am selling the 67 MGB and the 71 Bonneville motorcycle.
