MGBs are not the most powerful sports car ever made and many folks spend lots of money these days trying to add a little power to their slow car. Here we have a Craigslist 1963 MGB for sale that has gone the opposite direction. Why the hell would you put an anemic VW engine in the back of an MGB? Perhaps because you can have the only VW powered MGB in your state… or the world? Or maybe, the VW engine produces more horsepower than the stock MGB and this car is a poor mans Porsche 914? The car is located somewhere in Detroit, might explain it! Cold weather and a shithole city can do weird things.

The Craigslist ad for this crappy car is located here but this won’t last long. This is your chance to own the only MGB VW on your block.

One thing this piece of junk Craigslist 1963 MGB VW has going for it is better paint than the Detroit house it’s parked in front of. It also has a pretty cool modified interior. I like the electrical tape on the steering wheel, probably there so you know the car should be going straight.

This cool MGB VW even has fake wire wheels.  I thought you only saw these on Detroit pimpmobiles. This is in Detroit but these really belong on an old Ford or Cadillac land yacht.

At any rate, this MGB VW or VW MGB has too much time and maybe even too much money invested in it. It’s a deal!
