1978 MGB V8 For Sale

This V8 conversion was completed in 2004, by British Sports Car Services in Powhatan, VA. Receipts for the build are in excess of $24,000. Some items included on the build sheet are as follows:

  • Rover 4.0 short block crate motor. + (Intake, Headers, Edelbrock Carburetor, Free flow exhaust, Crower Cam and FI Heads, Gear reduction starter)
  • New oil pan and gasket.   (D & D Fabrications)

Total build sheet includes 63 lines and I think there are some items not listed.

The car spent the next 10 years with a British car enthusiast in SC where it was always garaged, well maintained and lightly driven. Except for a few paint chips and some tiny blisters in the paint next to the top rear fender beads and a 2-inch cut repair in the vinyl top, which isn’t noticed until you look for it, the car is a “good 10 footer”.   It is estimated that the car has only logged 7000 miles since built.

Upon moving to my garage a new Edelbrock 500 carburetor was installed, a radiator leak repaired, all fluids serviced and a remote oil filter added.

Also included are a tonneau cover and a convertible top stowage cover.
