1967 MGB has been sold
These are pictures of my 1967 MGB project car. The top two pictures Right and left, third below it (right), the pictures of
the floors, trunk and engine bay are as the car looks today (May, 2015). This 1967 MGB had new Moss Motors rockers and floors
tacked in about 25 years ago about $900 worth of parts with receipts while the Moss Motors rockers and fender panels were
recently finished and welding in. Most of the metal work is done with only minor work remaining. This car is complete and
comes with the original and many new parts, including a new windshield (not yet installed and still in its shipping bubble
wrap), all of the new rubber for the windshield and side windows, most of the broken or missing metal and plastic parts (like
window roll up handles, side curtain hinge tail lights etc.),and many other parts. The car ran when I parked it about 25 years
ago, and it has been sitting in my garage or barn ever since (I squirt oil in the plug holes from time to time and the engine
turns over easily by hand). I believe the transmission is OK although shifter is stiff but movable through sitting, and I
believe both the engine and transmission will require a rebuild. I believe the car is pretty much complete, but it has been
moved from New England to Missouri, so some small parts may be missing. The car has both the old style bows for the top that
you assemble and a newer style top that can be just pulled up. The vinyl top is the one that I recently took off of my 77
MG and is in fair condition. This is one of the more desirable years for the MGB because it is the latest model year right
before emission controls. It has a 1971 high compression engine in it that was supposedly rebuilt before I got the car(I saw
it running before I bought it). There is no mileage on it since that time and I never registered the car but rebuilding is
required. I bought it to have a ten year difference between my two MGBs and now finally am in the procass of restoring it
it. However, my body tells me that it is not interested in doing much more car work. The car has twin SU carburetors and a
four speed trans and aluminum hood. It is now mostly prime waiting for fairing and a full primer coat. The car is now mostly
disassembled, and the next step would be to remove the wind screen, Paint, install the new window and rubber seals, then perform
the complete assembly. This car has paperwork for it's original car number and it's vin number and comes with a Missouri Title.

The above picture is of the right rear quarter with the panels welded in. In this shot the primer painting is not
yet complete. Below is the 1967 MGB interior and dash prior to disasembly. Note that there is no radio.
Above are some of the loose parts that will go back into the 67 MGB. These are older shots of the car parts
so now the side panels and floors are welded in, the engine is removed, and the wnd screen will soon be removed. The
car is mostly complete, but some items such as the the radio are missing. The white stuff to the left of the pile
is the new windshield that is still in its original shipping bubble wrap and will go in later.
Below is the left side with seats removed to show the inner rocker panel work. Of course both sides have
all inner and outer rocker panels. There are no floor rugs with the car. I will hopefully get some more updated shots
of the car shortly.
Below is the right side floors prior to finish work.
Below is a view of the trunk interior after finish welding and priming. The trunk had no real damage and only
fine surface rust, and it cleaned up for priming quite easily. Only a few small spots required welding.
Below is a picture of the engine bay with its 1971 engine prior to engine removal this summer. The engine bay has had
welding done around the top of the wheel well areas and has been primed and has one coat of red applied at this time. The
bay still needs minor finish work in the lower areas.
The above picture shows the engine bay as it looks today July 10, 2012. The engine and parts are stored in my shop area.
