This MG was given to me. No rust, but a few other issues. A friend from church bought it 13 years ago and never got around to fixing it up. I put the new rag on, rear wheel cylinders, rear tranny seal, seat covers and welded the exhaust manifold. I had it running, but the 1976 was puny because of all the smog controls. Since it was a gift, I can't sell it. It is just for showing off on nice days. Why not make it doubly interesting by gasifying? Here is a picture of a 1976 MGB engine compartment. Mine is now clean after removing all of the nonsense.
