Built in 1991 by Mike Goodman, this is a 1971 MGB GT that has been converted into a convertible... pickup truck. Because why not, I guess? The price is $22,000 OBO, which is a bit pricey, but the MGB appears to be pristine. As pristine as an MGB converted into a truck can be, anyway. A bulkhead was installed behind the the front seats and the rear seat and trunk area has been converted into a lined and carpeted bed, covered by a second tonneau cover extending from the back of the seats.

The engine was treated to a full rebuild, and given earlier twin SU carburetors, electronic ignition, and a custom exhaust among other things.

The icing on the cake? All the electronics were replaced with new ones, thus eliminating one of the MGB’s most infamous problems. It’s only been driven 8,428 miles since the rebuild, so there’s that as well. Still, with all that going for it, it still costs 22 grand. So what do you think? NPOCP?
