800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1980 MGB has the distinct look of a classic roadster. So from the wire wheels, to the standout color combo, this full package delivers far more than the affordable price would suggest.
The first thing you're going to notice is the way the body looks. The 1980 car was the one to close the book on these legendary MGs. So it was born a black bumper convertible, but that's obviously not what it is today. Someone made a proper investment to turn back the clock and give this the more desirable chrome bumpers and chrome grille. It really looks nice against the other brightwork pieces, like the full-length trim and the rear luggage rack. Plus, the addition of wire wheels with knock-off hubs is a true masterstroke of sports car elegance. It's all finished in a bold shade of orange that was added later in life, so it has a nice gloss. And the tan folding roof only adds to this distinctive look.
If you like the way the roof color looks against the paint, then you're going to love the interior. It has more of the distinctive tan. Plus, this really has some great details, like the brown piping on the upgraded seats, and the full wood-like trim on the dash, door panels, and center console. There's an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input so you can have your favorite road trip tunes, and the steering wheel is an upgraded Moto-Lita unit to put you in firm control. So while all MGBs feel like great driver's machines, this one has that extra investment to really keep you enjoying it for many mile to come.
Under the hood is the proper 1800cc motor. It looks tidy and has some nice upgrades. This engine features a MSX aluminum crossflow/alloy head, along with pulleys and steel braded hoses. Just as the exterior went for the classic look, the engine bay turned back the clock by returning to the desirable twin SU carbs setup. There's even an exhaust header for that extra kick of power and extra exhaust note. You get to take full advantage of it all thanks to the four-speed manual transmission that also includes electronic overdrive. Plus, front disc brakes, the grip of modern Yokohama tires, and MG's nimble handling all make this one is ready for your favorite open road.
Complete with maintenance records and owner's manual, this is a classic British roadster with the best distinction upgrades. So don't miss this excellent deal. Call now!
