Delightful Driver: 1965 MG MGB – NOW $10,800

June 14, 2021 Update – In their latest listing for their ’65 MGB, the private seller just lowered their asking price by nearly five thousand dollars to land at $10,800.

Unintentionally, the MGB ended up Morris Garages’ (“MG”) longest-running model with production lasting from its launch in 1962 through 1980.  The MGB was the company’s first modern design car incorporating a unitized body and even early forms of crash crumple zones. MkI MGBs such as this red over black example currently listed here on Craigslist in South Glastonbury, Connecticut (Hartford) still relied on a four-speed manual gearbox with a non-synchromesh, straight-cut first gear carried over from the MGA.  Featuring the more desirable folding top mechanism that later became standard on all MkII versions, the current caretaker is asking $15,700 or best offer for their chrome bumper ‘B. The Collector Car Market Review indicates the current asking price is $500 above this guide’s #2 “Very Good” estimate of $15,200.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“This is a fun 1965 MGB Roadster with ONLY 32,739 miles going for $15,700.

This 1965 MGB is a sight to behold with its chrome bumpers and Bright RED paint with a sheen that will make a speeding bullet jealous.

The interior is cozy and snug just like a sports car should be. With black vinyl bucket seats, shift knob, and proper sporting gauges the driver has everything YOU need for your next spirited drive.

This motor is a delight to drive. This car is a 4 cylinder, 4-speed manual transmission.
This car has been well taken care of with no issues and drives as new.

When the weather gets hairy the vinyl top with a plastic rear window will keep you protected on your journey.
