  No Reserve: SVO-Powered 1970 MG MGB Roadster 5-Speed


Featured on "Bring a Trailer"



- This 1970 MG MGB roadster has been modified with custom yellow fiberglass bodywork and a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four reportedly sourced from a Ford Mustang SVO. Shifting is through a five-speed manual transmission, and additional features include a white soft top, cream leather upholstery, air conditioning, Blaupunkt AM/FM cassette stereo, power-assisted steering and front disc brakes, and 15” Super Sport-style wheels. The car is said to have spent time in the collection of the Volo Auto Museum before being acquired by the current owner. This modified MGB roadster is now being offered in Canada on consignment by the selling dealer at no reserve with British Columbia registration.


- The car is finished in yellow and has been fitted with custom fiberglass bodywork, including a hood with a scoop and vents, flared front and rear fenders, a vented front bumper, and aftermarket taillights. Additional equipment includes a removable white soft top, a rear lip spoiler, dual exhausts, bullet-style side-view mirrors, stone guards ahead of the rear wheels, and Kustoms of America badging. The seller has been unable to locate the trunk release lever, and various scratches, cracks, and paint chips are present around the body



- The 15” Super Sport-style wheels are mounted with Kelly Charger tires that measure 225/50 up front and 295/50 out back. Braking is through power-assisted front discs and rear drums.



- The cabin houses bucket seats trimmed in cream leather upholstery with a color-coordinated dashboard and door panels. Custom metal panels with switchgear have been added to the center stack, and amenities include air conditioning, power steering, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM cassette stereo. Duct tape and peeling upholstery are visible on the soft top headliner



- A wood-rimmed steering wheel with a Turbo horn button sits ahead of AutoMeter instrumentation that includes a 10k-rpm tachometer, a 160-mph speedometer, and auxiliary displays. The digital odometer shows approximately 17k miles, around 100 of which have been added during current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.



- The turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four was reportedly sourced from a Ford Mustang SVO and features electronic fuel injection, a top-mount intercooler, and an MSD Blaster TFI ignition coil.



- Power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. Corrosion is present on the underside, suspension, and exhaust components, additional photos of which are provided in the gallery below.
