1977 MG MGB Additional Info:

1977 MGB Driving Project 1977 MGB, 4 speed, Weber. Runs and drives. I bought this a few years ago to piddle with, replaced all of the brakes, installed a tube shock conversion in the rear, new fuel lines, tune up, front wheel bearings, new thermostat....
The top has a couple of tears, but could be repaired. There is a boot cover, but no tonneau. There are 4 new Kuhmo KR21 solas tires, less than 100 miles on them. The wheels were re painted.
I removed the interior, and there was some scaling on the floorboard. I had it blasted, brushed, used POR 40 and a wire brush, primed with rustoleum primer, and painted rustoleum green. I bought this car cause the floorboards were pretty good. There is a couple of spots of JB weld in the floor, less than a tube.
The body is pretty good, I see some filler in the trunk lid, but I am not sure if there is any more. The paint was non professionally done, and needs to be re-painted. The windshield has some fog, and needs visors.
I had the seats recovered, bought a carpet set, and a roll of soundproofing. That all needs to be installed, the interior was taken out to treat the floorboards. One seat is held in with a couple of bolts, enough to drive around neighborhood.
There is a box of new parts including front end bushing sets, rear wheel bearings, U joints, tune up parts, fan switch, and a service manual.
The car needs:
new steering rack
paint job
there is a aftermarket exhaust system on the car, it is junk and rattles like a skeleton falling down a flight of stairs.
There is no radio
I have the old seat belts, but they are ugly
Needs a drivers side mirror
Windshield weatherstripping is dried out and should be replaced.
The front suspension is a bit loose, it need the steering rack replaced. Brakes need to be adjusted and bled. The car is kept in a barn out of the weather.
I have lost access to my shop space, and am too damn old to crawl around on the ground under a MG.
The car is about 30 miles east of Pensacola Florida, and has a clear Florida title.
Mileage exempt - I do not know how many miles are on the car, the speedo says about 57000, but who knows?
