Description for MG MGB 1978

***. ***

This MGB is a steal! She has been my baby since flight school and I have been restoring her for the last eleven years but sadly can no longer afford to keep her. I have elected to set the starting price low and forego a reserve price because I simply don’t have time/money to keep relisting. Happy bidding!
