We are excited to offer this 1967 MGB Tourer for sale. This is a later 67 B (built on the 22nd and 23rd of September 1967, per the Heritage Certificate) and thus was among the first cars to be shipped to the USA with back-up lights. This is the last of the best Bs, with chrome bumpers and a metal dashboard. The less attractive padded dash model come out in 1968, which also marked the dawn of less sexy “safety” octagon knock-off spinners, additional reflectors and more. Here we have cleaner lines and much more attractive vintage two-earned knock offs, correct for the car.
We’ve just installed a pair of new front lever shocks and aligned the front end, to further prepare this great car for a new home. And check out the driving video shown below!
I have a particular soft spot in my heart for this vintage of MGB as my first car was a 1966 B. Here’s a picture of me in that car with my sister back in the 70s. So when this one came along as a trade-in recently, I jumped. This is a particularly special color combination of black and deep red– always a knock-out. The chrome wheels are also quite striking. Top is brand new. New leather seats are beautifully restored with contrasting piping. Carpet is also new. Trunk is fit with an aftermarket carpet kit for a more finished look.
The included Heritage certificate validates that this is the correct original five-main bearing 18GB engine that came with this car, another big plus. The car has a non-synchro first gear original four speed non-overdrive gear box. This car drives great, the engine is very clean and rebuilt, not many miles were put on the car since restoration. She was converted to a single 12 volt battery from the factory twin six volts, and while not authentic, it’s a lot more convenient with fewer connections to fail. This is a popular upgrade that I have in my own personal 67 MGB. The original electric fuel pump was converted to a solid state fuel pump with no points to fail. This is another good reliability upgrade. New fuel tank, exhaust system and master and slave cylinders. An upgraded gear reduction starter has also been fit.
The car drives great.
This car looks stunning and shines beautifully. Engine matches and the color is correct, matching the heritage certificate. We have priced it very competitively at $18,995. There isn’t much you can find under $20k that has this kind of heritage and is also the best of the lineage. Rubber bumper Bs are out there sometimes for less, but this is a car with serious collectability, and it’s faster, simpler and more pure, before reflectors, air pumps and other emission controls mucked-up these wonderful cars.
As with almost every classic British car, there is a short punch list for this one: Tach is reading too high, we can have it rebuilt for you if you want it to be right. Choke is technically in the wrong location on the dash, although working perfectly-again, we can move this if it bothers you. Windshield glass has a small wiper-induced scratch. Some vibration is evident above 50MPH. Properly balancing the wheels should fix that. Shift knob appears to be from a 68 B, earlier shift knobs are available. That’s a very short list-all the most important stuff, like drivetrain, body and interior restoration, has been done quite nicely!
