I suggest that you obtain a current copy of the "Old Cars Price Guide" or go 
to  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 
worth about
$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
