This 1967 MGB GT (Chassis GBD010950P) is a well preserved example with a truckload of desirable spares and a currently inoperable overdrive. The seller put together an excellent Picasa photo album with captions (link), showing that the sale includes some very cool vintage America Racing Libre wheels and the corresponding 4-lug rear axle and front hubs. An additional steel dash and the tired factory engine and transmission are included, and the car currently sports a modified engine from the same year with Sean Brown head, VP-12 cam, and side-draft carb as well as an overdrive transmission that won’t currently engage overdrive. The seller says that it runs very well apart from that issue, that the interior is excellent, and that the Grampian Gray paint is good driver quality. It is available in Oakland, California for $11, 900.
The car came from Bakersfield, California where the previous owner had painted it and put in mostly all new interior. The paint has some chips and minor orange peel, and lower drivers door sill has small bubbles starting, but no other rust according to the seller. The seller admits that he is no overdrive expert, and after adding new seals, solenoid, wiring harness, switch, and bearings, it still does not want to engage. He suspects that an expert with these units is required to help sort it out.

Your PB G3 Is Borderline2002-12-30 10:48:32 by macman
You'll be able to install Jaguar on your PB G3 as long as it's an M4753; if it's an older M3553 then it won't install. If your hard drive is already formatted HFS Plus (a.k.a. Mac OS Extended) then you can install OS X without destroying your OS 9 installation. You'll be able to boot your OS 9 system under OS X using Classic, or native. As with any software installation, back up first!
On your 266 MHz G3 with 192M RAM, OS X will be sluggish, especially if you're used to using it on a faster machine. Whether OS X performance will be acceptable to you is a personal matter. Regardless of performance, I'd still spend the $100 on OS X Jaguar, if only for the experience of learning the new OS.
