June 12, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

April 10, 2021 Update – The private seller just lowered their asking price from $7,500 to $6,800.

March 19, 2021 Update – We just came across a fresh listing for this ’71 MGB we first featured in mid-February. The description, limited pictures, and price all remain the same.

Sometimes you can just feel when reading a Craigslist “Classifind” when less is more.  That’s the vibe we’re getting with this 1971 MGB listed last night with only two exterior pictures.  Consistently warm spring weather is still six weeks away, so installing the freshly reupholstered leather seats, new carpet, and the convertible top is this perfect project to tackle in your garage why you wait for the weather to turn. If that sounds like a feasible project, you can find this MGB originally listed in April 2021 on Craigslist in Hanson, Massachusetts (south of Boston) with an asking price of $7,500. Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their ‘B priced between this guide’s #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $4,100 and its #3 “Good” appraisal of $9,000.  Similarly, the  Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the asking price falls between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $6,800 and its #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $11,500.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1971 MGB Roadster in very good condition. Has been mechanically updated: new battery, radiator, thermostat, water pump, hoses, belts, distributor/rotor, 4 brand new tires, clutch master/slave unit. Has Weber carburetor and electronic ignition. The interior needs to be finished installing. ( brand new leather interior and carpet ) Seats were professionally reupholstered.
