1968 MGB

Posting for my uncle.

He has a 1968 MGB in his driveway in West Van, and he’s moving and needs it gone. It’s been a lot of years since it ran. It still rolls, but likely doesn’t turn over. But probably a great parts car (especially for the price).

Shoot me a note and I’ll put you in touch with Andrew.

1969 MG – 1947 BSA B33 – For trade/sale

item is sold

Up for sale/trade is my 1969 MG midget. This car is a quality runner that has immense service history dating back into the 90s, it even has the original ownership card from 1969. It is not a show vehicle and is a driver, the car is local to BC originally being sold in Victoria. The most recent servicing has been completed at Octagon motor group with records totaling 6500$ from 2019-2023. New fluids, full brake job front and rear, new clutch, slave/master cyl, various gaskets, carb tuning ect – The list goes on. The MG is black with a beautiful Oxford red interior with classic white piping. Lap belts have been retro fitted and the top is in good shape. Headlights have had stone guards attached and yellow tint applied for a racecar look but both can be removed very easily. I’ve owned this car since 2019 and have loved it. Asking 12500.00.

Also for sale/trade is my 1947 BSA B33. This bike is ridden regularly and runs very strong. New front and rear tires, new battery, new fork seals, new clutch, original tank restored and painted, comes with a second tank and various extra parts. The headlight has had yellow tint and a stone guard added. I was also able to locate an original BSA tool box (now on bike) and hard to find tire pump that is mounted under the tank. I have an M42 headlight coming from the UK that I will put on as a later model headlamp is currently on it. The previous owner had this machine in his possession for close to 60 years. This is a very special and unique machine, not currently on collectors as I ride it to work regularly. Asking 14000.00.

Interesting automotive trades considered. I’m ideally, looking for a running/driving MGA or a 60’s Mustang. Will sell/trade separately or together OBO. Thanks.
