MGB with a Ford 5.0 L V8

1971 MGB with a Ford 5.0 L V8

This 1971 MGB is for sale in Stockton, California with an asking price of $17,750. The little roadster is powered by a Ford 5.0 L V8 from a 1992 Mustang. The engine might only produce 225 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque but it’s plenty for a 1,900 lb car. The drivetrain consists of a T5 five-speed manual transmission and an 8-inch rear axle with a 3.25 gears.

  1. I am happy to say that this MGB is not for sale anymore as I purchased it this week. As promised it is a blast to drive. It is not without the standard British car issues with a few switches and gauges being at best intermittent working partners but that will soon be sorted out.

      1. Hi Michael. I am planning on and have most of the parts to swap the Ford 5.0 EFI into my 1979 MGB. I’d love to have a phone conversation with you to get some tips on your swap. Since I have a 79 I need to maintain all the emission controls and I’d like to see how you approach your car.
