Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: Last of the Chrome Bumper MGBs

As we search for deals to bring to you from across the internet, we feel obliged to mix in some core cars along with the strange and unique. This 1974 MGB may not be the most spectacular classic we’ve posted about, but it rolled out of the factory during the last year that chrome bumpers were available, and it’s finished in a beautiful factory color option called “Black Tulip.” The seller, Leadfoot Muscle Cars, is asking for $16,500 for this clean example.

I'm sorry a 'black tulip' liveried chrome bumper 1974 MGB, even if it had delivery miles is not worth $16k IMHO.....ever. I own one.

I respectfully disagree 759NRNG. Before long, that price will seem like a bargain. MGB prices have been creeping up--- especially for the chrome bumper cars. Give it 10 years, and they will be $20-$30K for #1 and #2 examples.
