1963 MG B Mk 1 1.8
This is motoring not driving - breath and feel the world go by
Some rust repairs.
Speedo odometer stop working.
Starter motor made horrible noises.
I bought this car as a project to rebuild and sell. It was advertised in the paper fairly cheaply because of gearbox problems. I replaced the clutch and the gearbox was fine. It had the odd issue here and there, but nothing too annoying.
I then drove the car for 1.5 years. This was a great car to drive; when you wanted to get a way from it all, just put the top down and drive, all your cares just faded. I drove with the top down always, unless it was absolutely pelting down with rain, otherwise just keep driving and hope there are no red lights - the rain tends to catch up with you when you stop.
I then had the car re-sprayed, and sold it for a profit. I now own an MGA, but it's still being rebuilt. I hope it brings me as much fun as the MGB did.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
