I'm hoping to go see this MGB, check it out and see if I want to buy it.
Please take a look at the ad and let me know if there's anything you see that's a red flag, it looks and sounds pretty good for the price he's asking.

Check for wreck damage. Steering wheel looks bent, that may be from a collision damage.

That could just be a strange camera angle but it could also be what you said.
If the guy responds to my email or calls me I will certainly check really well for any signs of collision.
(I always give my phone number, wish sellers would just respond)

You could look at it this way, $3000 for the car and $1000 for the top! Factory original hard tops are getting hard to find, even harder to find one that came on the car when new. If it has never been in an accident, I think it's a good buy. Steering wheels can get bent just by pulling on them to get out of the car. JMHO. PJ
