Two MGB chrome bumper but Pillow dash wire wheel roadsters and one very junk MGB-GT with some good parts.

Bought these a while ago with intent to back-date restore the blue car.

Seems too many around me are kicking the bucket with a lot of unfinished projects.

I already have at least five other projects that comprise my personal "Bucket List" so will offer these up on the cheap.

Very much projects, engines will no doubt have to be rebuilt or replaced. 

Enough parts to have one very good car for the street and easily build another for track. Biggest missing item is front bumpers.

I have not done a full inventory as I am still bringing pieces home from the sellers place.

Yep, I'm still in Nevada but this pile may be worth the trip even from fairly far away.

Not parting the roadsters but the GT doors, rear deck, etc. can be had unless someone speaks up for everything first.

Not really desperate to sell as I see at least one complete MGB and enough parts for a nice Locost build or race car here.

Will ad pics once I get them resized. Blue car should be able to obtain a title.

Free bump for you.

Hopefully these get saved.

They just got a little better. Now have a complete intact roadster windshield to add to the pile.

In reply to RichardSIA :

If you do part out the GT what do you want for the carbs?

GT is definitely parts due to rust.

Before letting mechanical parts go I need to sort them out. Want to have as close to complete sets of parts for each of the roadsters as possible. I believe there are still parts to be picked up.

How to you feel about cutting the roof off the GT?

Or is yours dented too?

Just tell me where to cut!
GT is scrap due to rust.
Roof is ugly with peeling paint but I believe it is strait.
Can take a better look in the morning.
Roof cut off will make getting interior parts I want easier.

Great, I hear Win-Win...

Mine is only damaged on Drivers side (semi large tree branch).

Visually it looks good, but when I ran my hand over it some rippling is apparent.
Never been wrecked or badly dented but I'm guessing some items have been sat on it at some point.
If you still want it let me know where to cut.

OK, time for an update.

GT is definitely parts, "Brown" roadster now for sale on it's own CHEAP!
I am keeping the louvered bonnet.

I may get around to restoring the blue roadster unless I get a decent offer, pretty sure I can get a title for it.

1970 MGB wire wheel Roadster rolling shell at $300.00. 
No title in hand but may be able to get one. 
No engine*, transmission*, bonnet, or front bumper. 
Missing left front fender. 
Needs a small rust patch to the RH door. 
Perfect inexpensive shell for your engine conversion project, "Challenge Build", or to restore a wrecked car. 
Can ship at buyers expense but best to just come for it. 
Yerington NV USA, 89447 
Please email questions. 

*Actually I do have a set in another car but it seems they are probably more valuable to me than anyone else. 
Might sell for the right price, engine is probably stuck from sitting.

So...what's the price on the blue?

Sheetmetal looks ok (ish), needs a front bumper and what else body wise?

Interior complete? Obviously needs re-work, but all parts there (seats, door panels, dash, etc)?

I had kind of decided I might get around to making the blue car a runner.
I took the louvered bonnet from the brown "Patina" car for the blue one so it now has a fairly nice complete body.
Blue car has stuck engine missing valve cover but otherwise complete, I think I even saw the air cleaners.
Guy I got it from said it was his sons car so title should be available.
How about an offer somewhere near what the parts are worth?
That would be significantly more than the $300.00 Patina car.
My thinking is that if I cannot sell them soon they are great traditional Locost 7 donors.

OK, traded the two MGB roadsters for a hacked up Bugeye.
Similar to the Riggamort car, had a V8 of some sort stuffed into it so lots of repair for me.
I have a Mk. II shell to provide repair parts.

I get to keep the carbs and GT drivetrain, so all I need is a rear axle to have all the basics to build another 7 replica.

Need to get the GT cut apart before winter.
