Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1978 MG MGB!

The recipe for a British roadster is timeless. Making the experience accessible to the masses the MGB offers affordability, fun, reasonable reliability, and top-down wind through the hair experience!

The odometer shows 12,898 miles. This mileage is believed to be 112,898. The current owner purchased it from a dealer in 2015 in great condition and drove it very little. Most of the car appears to be original with the exception of twin carburetors, red suspension springs, and an aftermarket radio.

The driving experience is what one expects from sporty vehicle from the late 70s. It starts, runs, and drives like a car from the 70s, but add the fun of a rear-wheel-drive front engine experience. These inline 4 cylinders are notoriously reliable and sporting good fun. Most cities can proudly claim MG owners clubs to add community to your ownership experience.

The paint and upholstery are in proud driver condition and maybe even a step above. The engine bay shows a couple years of dust but could easily be detailed to a high level. The interior seats don't show a ton of wear, and the touch surfaces also seem to be in great shape!

This 1978 MG MGB is offered by the St. Louis sales staff and can be seen in full detail on our website. Our listing all include 100+ HD photos and a detailed video!
