I suggest that you obtain a current copy of the "Old Cars Price Guide" or go
www.oldcarspriceguide.net and do some comparison. I think that you will
find that your MGA MKII roadster in #3 condition is still worth a bit more
than a 67 MGB in #2 condition.
A complete MKII engine (should be 1622cc) as a rebuildable core should be
$500.00 ,transmission about $150.00 as a rebuildable core, the 1600 engine
about $300.00. Seats 30 to 50 each (for the frames). Windshied frame a
$100.00 all day long.
The MGB would have to be in #1 or a very good #2 condition to make a
good trade, so check it (have it checked) very carefully. Opinions will
