A guy stopped by the house Saturday with his '67 roadster,
& told me that he was thinking about selling it.He's a retired German
car mechanic from Southern California.
Anyway,it's BRG,decent paint,overdrive,all-synchro box,nice in-
terior,chrome wires w/o knockoffs.He asked me what I thought it was
worth,& I couldn't give him a definate answer.
He told me that his daughter,who lives in Santa Barbara,wants it,
but didn't think that it'd last more than 6 months if she got it.
As I have someone interested in the TR6,I'm tempted to buy it,
if the price is right.Why is it that something like this always seems to
come along at the wrong time?

Doug, sounds nice. Give him a $4500 offer and see if he flinches, if it were closer I would have a hard time tuning down a nice driver at that price.

Price is a hard one, depends so much on condition and the local market. I'd guess between $5000 - $10,000 assuming it's a nice driver but far from perfect, and probably at the higher end of that range. '67 is a good year for a MGB in the USA, and wires and an overdrive are desired options. If it's in really nice shape then more like $10,000 - $15,000.

None of these cars are as cheap as they used to be.

Yes....$5000 to $10000 for a reasonable driver.

I'd be happy to split the difference on those numbers for my '69 B roadster right now.

Bummer!

But, if you decide to go that route, there are plenty of nice, mid-60s MGBs around. Keep an eye out, and you'll find a nice one for a sensible price.
