Up for sale is a very nice example of an British roadster in the iconic British Racing Green. This car runs like a top and is ready to get out and turn heads this summer. It fires right up, steering and handling is tight, and brakes work great. This car has been very reliable (for a classic European car) and is not plagued with the electrical gremlins common to many MG's. The sheetmetal and understructure is also very solid and not rotten like many British classics. Current owner is absolutely meticulous in it's care, maintenance, and improvements. This is NOT a frame off restoration for the Pebble Beach show. It is in VERY GOOD "drivers" condition, and an excellent value for a fun & usable collectors car. Please compare to other MG's on craigslist and eBay.. You will find that others at this price point are not nearly as clean or as mechanically sound.
