1978 MG B V8 ‘Track Car’


The MG B is well known as an affordable British sports car that is also a lot of fun to drive. The MG B that you see for sale here has been modified by a previous owner for mostly track use, though it is important to note that the car is completely road legal and will be sold with an MOT so that you can use it however you please. Among the modifications made to this particular car is the replacement of the original engine with a 3.5l Rover V8 which provides more power and arguably a more entertaining sound track too. Also fitted is a pair of race seats and also a roll cage, certainly helpful if you do want to use this pretty little MG on the track.

The paintwork is in good condition, though it could use touching up in the engine bay if you are particularly fussy. The interior is also a pleasant place to be and needs no work, there are also a few additional switches for a battery cut off and more. There isn’t a lot of paperwork with the car unfortunately, but perhaps that isn’t too much of a surprise considering the life this car has lead over recent years.
