Classifind Cut 33: 1977 MG MGB w/AC – SOLD!

May 2021 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Sports Car Saturday

June 12, 2021 Update – we confirmed the seller of this MGB “Classifind” we’ve been tracking since January deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “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.

May 11. 2021 Update – The seller just posted a fresh listing for their air-conditioned MGB.  The price, description, and pictures in the new ad all appear to be the same.

April 8, 2021 Update  – Fast forward two months after letting their last Craigslist ad expire, and we came across this new listing just as the weather warms. We also like how the private seller resisted the urge to increase the price, instead choosing to lower their asking price to $7,500 to promote a quick sale.

February 12, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this classic MGB expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” unless we come across a fresh listing later on.

January 11, 2021 Update – This MGB equipped with air conditioning remains available at the revised price of $8,000.

A vintage British sports car equipped with air conditioning?  Isn’t that what the convertible top is for?  Given the already anemic smog-controlled output of rubber bumper MGB’s, this 1977 white-over-black example originally listed in the Fall of 2020 in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania won’t win any drag races, especially when the compressor kicks in. Offered at $9,500, this MGB features a Weber carburetor that hopefully makes up for some of the aforementioned parasitic losses.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“This is a 1977 MGB Roadster (built in 1976), the body on the MGB is extremely clean.. the floors and rocker panels are straight and very solid. The Pure White paint is in excellent, shiny, condition and looks great with the all-Black interior. The interior is in decent shape with only a few cracks on the top of the dashboard and a slight rip on the passenger seat. The carpet is in great shape as is the rest of the interior, heavy-duty “MG” rubber mats protect the floors. It also has air conditioning installed but most likely needs a little bit of attention but is all in place, this was a rare factory option back in the day. The top is in excellent condition and the plastic windows are nice and clear. Tires and brakes are excellent on this car. Car runs very nice with the Weber downdraft upgraded carb. A recent radiator upgrade makes this MGB run nice and cool. Also recently added was an ECCO electric fuel pump which is one of the best fuel pumps you can use on an MGB. Flush mounted antenna is nice for when the car is stored. There is a trunk carpet kit installed, and the spare tire is in good shape as well. This car turns heads everywhere it goes and is an excellent example of a late model MGB Roadster. One wiper arm is missing but will be replaced soon. Get in and enjoy this beautiful vintage British sports car now for the fall!
