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.
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

Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1968-mgb-roadster/ to see this 1968
MGB Roadster for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California.
Solid 1968 MGB Roadster for sale, just one owner until a year ago. Owned
from new by a couple in the Bay area until purchased by my client earlier
this year. The original owner worked at an MG dealership. It was his
wife's car and only used for local drives in their home town. The car
starts; runs and drives beautifully with smooth shifting, tight suspension,
excellent brakes and clean running quiet motor with plenty of oil pressure.
Truly amazing to find such an original gem.
Incredibly original and unaltered, right down to the emissions equipment on
the engine. Lovingly cared for. The only modifications are period speakers
installed in the rear bulkhead and an electric cooling fan added to the
radiator. Drives with a tightness and originality that you don't find on
restored cars. Has had one repaint of it's original primrose on a razor
straight, absolute rust-free body. The wheels still bear the factory paint
and car has a vintage Amco convertible top. Frame bag is included. Nice
chrome, trim, glass and even the original leather in beautiful condition.
Also includes both original issue black license plates.
Take a look at all the details as well as full photo gallery at the link
above and then give me a call with your best offer.
Thanks for watching this 1968 MGA test drive video - please leave a nice
