1974 MG B Tourer 1.8 4 cylinder
Great fun... timeless
Rust - it was well hidden by the previous owner, but is now coming through loud and clear - and it seems nothing slows it other than metal replacement.
These are great little cars - very solid and simple to maintain. Parts are readily available.
Many mechanics shy away from working on Brit bits, but once they realize the simplicity of the car, they actually seem to enjoy it - no computers!
I have not had the Lucas electrical issues others may have had. She fires up with a flick of the key.
Classic exhaust notes. Classic lines. Buy a good solid one. It's easier to sort out the mechanical and interior issues than it is to make a body right. Rust free is the priority. Enjoy!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
