Post 79 MGB roadster

Well, time to sell another car I don't seem to ever drive...
It has a Weber DGV with headers. It shows 44,543 miles ( would assume 144?) The car runs great with good oil pressure and no smoking. It has the tonneau to cover the hood when down. I also have the clear wind blocker(works great!)
I bought this B from Dan Craig in December of 2007. Here is the condensed list of things he did to car:
Front suspension poly bushings with new lowered front coil springs
New rack boots
New front air dam
New rear check straps
Sandblasted/repainted wheels/ new trim rings/new Goodyear tires
New console lid/support

Things I have done to the car:
New top/new carpet installed professionally
New underbonnet insulation/new bonnet bumpers and rear bonnet seal
New front brake hoses/replace fluid/bleed 9/17
New license plate lights
New bonnet release cable
Clean and kit the carb
Rebuilt original alternator
Rebuilt original starter
Rebuilt distributor new points/condenser/rotor/cap
Fresh oil change/filter/zinc additive 9/17
The seats and door panels are very nice; I replaced the "knock on" rubber trim around the doors
The paint has some bubbles; left rear dogleg area/right rear dogleg area/rockers; none of this has gotten worse in my 10 years of ownership. The lower left dash has deteriorated (can't see it unless you are looking under dash). Someone before Dan did some rewiring; the headlight dimmer is on a foot switch; the hazard switch is not hooked up; the heater fan is on a toggle switch (never used it). I put a ball valve in place of the leak prone heater valve
Hagerty's price guide shows a #2 at $15,700 and a #3 at $7,600; this car falls somewhere in the middle.
NADA classic shows Average of $12,350. Based on these guides I am asking $8,900. I have plenty of photos and can take some of anything you need. This is a great car; looks nice and runs great. I have just decided to move out things I don't use enough...

Call or text me at 417-598-4088 to drive or for more info.

Well, The old girl is going thru the fall Branson Auction on Oct 21. Lot #508, so it will be one of the first to run Saturday morning. The reserve is a lot less than I was asking here...

Well, the queen bee didn't meet her reserve on Saturday, so she is back home. I will drop the price to $5,500 dollars... If you are interested, drop me a line...
