MGB V8 (https://www.panjo.com/buy/mgb-v8-194860)

For Sale: 1965 MGB roadster, V8 conversion.

Engine is an aluminum 215 CID (3.5L) V8 from a '63 Buick Skylark, fully rebuilt in 2004, less than 5K miles on it. Gearbox is from an '88 IROC, world class T5, .73 5th gear. Custom driveline, all new Spicer parts. Stock rear end. Hydraulic clutch, throw out bearing recently rebuilt, brakes fully rebuilt, new rotors last year. I installed a new cap and rotor this past week, runs smoother.

Some original (not repro) MGBGT V8 parts were used in this conversion including the inductions system w/ dual HIF6 carbs and air boxes, as well as original Dunlop V8 wheels, all sourced and imported from the UK. I wanted the car to look like a roadster version of the factory GT V8 cars, specifically the LHD prototype models tested in the states in 1973.

10 year old paint job looks fine, but could use refreshing. There is some small bubbling in the outer rockers, tough to see with the dark paint.

There are extra parts included, the original 1965 grille and the front bumper assembly as well as a spare V8 wheel, jack, lug wrench, etc. I also have an NOS MGC one piece exhaust that I intended to fit to the car to make it a little quieter, it's included in the sale along with new, correct hangers and hardware, not installed.

Car goes like a scared rabbit, cools fine, L\ˈXܞH\[YY \[\[ܚY[[ NM۝\XHX]^H[YK[ۛX]H[ۛX]H\[YY BBH\ۉ]H]]X[[[ܙK\H]ڙXYYH[^H\YK[HH[KBB[XZ[]XYX]Y\[ۜ܈XYXX\H\]Y\ˈIH]Z[XHH\[][[[[^\ˈY[IܙH[[[YH] ]YHۛ[IZH[H܈HYKBB\]N
