1975 MG MGB For Sale
Used 1975 MG MGB 58,000 km, Red
Ruby Ruby is a fiery little lady who loves to hated, keeps a man on his toes and has all the qualities needed to look beyond all that and love her dearly. Known History I know little of the history of this beauty. I bought her from an older fellow in Kelowna BC who loved vintage cars more than most. He says he found her sitting outside and somewhat neglected in a yard on the other side of town. As his youngest was needing/wanting a 1st car, he approached the owner and struck a deal. Unbeknownst to him and his son, his wife refused the idea of her youngest lad having a vintage convertible as his 1st car. Hence the sale of her to me some months later. At some time in her life she was part of the MG owners club of the OKanagan region. My only indication of this was the much-faded sticker on the windshield. Sheâ��s also had some work done to her. There was a new wiring harness installed at some point in her life and I believe that the duel carbs are an upgrade of sorts. They donâ��t seem to fit all that well under the hood and they seem to be â��Jerry Riggedâ�� to a point. I suspect that Ruby originally came with a single car set up. However, I could be wrong. Modifications My plans for Ruby are many. Although this lady handles wonderfully, my 1st plan is to upgrade the suspension to help her hug the road even better. With the inclusion of fifteen-inch wheels, this should work out nicely. The drive-train is also on the list with a planned upgrade of a fuel injection system and performance cam to match. A suitable performance exhaust from the head back should complete this portion of the project. And, I canâ��t have done all this without giving some attention to the transmission. The non-overdrive four gear will be pulled, and a five gear will be put in its place. I have a budgeted $25,000 for these upgrades. Hopefully, itâ��ll be enough. Once finished, Ruby should make for a wonderful driving experience. As with my Pearl, this car is never to be sold but, after many years of enjoyment, to be handed down to 1 of my sons.
