1975 MGB with a Buick Skylark 215 V8 conversion! This is probably the baddest MG you will find! This MG has been converted to a chrome bumper car like the 1974 and older models, has a convertible top cover, very nice top, extremely solid and nicely undercoated to keep it that way, and has the original jack, tonneau rails, and lug wrench, MGB manuals, and V8 conversion data! The engine is an aluminum block 215 out of a Buick Skylark that has been bored, had a mild cam installed, and has an Edelbrock 500 CFM carburetor with electric choke, and Offenhauser aluminum valve covers. Bolted behind the engine is a Borg-Warner T5, 5 speed manual transmission from a Camaro. Other upgrades include: Grant steering wheel, American Racing honeycomb wheels, trailer hitch and wiring harness, and hydraulic throw out bearing! Please, call 800-231-3616 or 618-271-3000 for additional details.

1980 MGB LE V8 For Sale 215 Olds V8 T5 speed
Updated 9/14/13 Marc Gottlieb's 1980 MGB LE V8 conversion is once again up
for sale. I sold this car a couple of years ago and then bought it back in
the Spring so I could drive it for the summer. Now I found a Bad Boy Chevy
V6 Miata and finishing up the ultimate MGB V8 so I need the room. This has
the outstanding lightweight 215 Olds V8 coupled to a 95 T5 5 speed
transmission. Did I forget to mention it has air conditioning. This car is
amazing. Great ride , sound and pulls through every gear. This car was
built by Tom Hoagland of Richmond Automotive the way it was meant to be. It
started of as a low mileage survivor with 46,000 miles. The paint is mostly
original and I cleaned up the interior with new carpet, seat covers and top
so now it looks brand new. It has a rebuilt 1962 Olds 215 coupled to a
rebuilt T5 out of a 95 Camaro with new tires and LE
rims. The rebuilt drivetrain has been driven about 4,000 miles. Call my
cell for additional information 631-988-5087 or email me. My email is

First drive of the LS1-powered MGB GT!
A big day! The MG came out of the garage for the first time in nearly two
years. This is just a "let's make sure it all works" drive. The power
steering pump was a bit low on fluid, thus the moaning noise. The brakes
were a bit soft but worked - you can see me checking them as I bring the
car out of the garage the first time.
And yes, there was a good burnout that didn't get caught on camera.
The car is a 1972 MGB GT that's been fitted with the engine and
transmission from a 1998 Camaro Z28. It's packing
somewhere between 350 and 400 hp, has a 6-speed T-56 transmission and a
Positraction rear. The front suspension runs on a custom frame and is
modeled after a Miata, the rear is a custom three-link setup. At the
moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs.
Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the
MG Special Tuning airdam that is not fitted. It's since been replaced with
a more efficient radiator that isn't quite as deep, mostly for better

The new Rover V8 in my MGB - Starting for the first time
So, after a year or so I have finaly inserted a new V8 in my MGB. This

engine. After 7 years on the road, the original engine's block cracked 1
month before I retired and moved to Lyme Regis in July 2007. I've never
performed anything major like this before, so this was a big and anxious
