1975 MGB Convertible V8

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.
