Applies to Rubber Bumper Cars
This was a recent eBay item where all the parts to convert a LHD rubber bumper imported MGB were being sold to convert it to RHD.
A friend of mine used to import cars from USA where many good condition MGBs are available rust free ideal for restoration but it costs about £2000+ to import back to the UK.
Looks like a lot of work involved making me wonder whether it’s really worth it!
Update 22.5.2020 – On a recent trip to Belvoir Castle a lovely looking MGB arrived by chance into the car park. Chatting with the owner it turns out this was an American import and converted to RHD spec 26 years ago – it looked stunning with all its original panels and chrome wheels.
Apparently the CB cars are a lot easier to convert simply by swapping bolt on parts. The RB cars were made LH or RH and not so easily swapped over without a substantial amount of welding.
