You see plenty of Fiat 124 Sport Spiders in self-service wrecking yards these days, but junked MGBs— which were more commonplace back in the day— are fairly rare. The MGB was slower, less sophisticated, and sturdier than its Fiat competitor, and it still has a big following today. This could mean that more MGB projects get finished, while 124 Spider projects languish for decades before getting discarded.
This car still has its SU carburetors, which must be worth dozens of dollars.
Judging from the very crispy interior and radiation-blasted paint, this car spent a decade or so outdoors and exposed to the Colorado elements.
Still, it has some usable parts. I’d grab that steering wheel for my stranded-in-California Sprite project, but it already has a sharp-looking Jaguar wheel.
