This beautiful MGB was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later British Leyland, with a four-cylinder, soft-top roadster from 1962 until 1980. The five-bearing 1,798cc engine produces 95 horsepower with peak power coming at 5,400 rpm. The majority of MGBs were exported to the U.S. and the distinctive rubber bumpers were fitted to meet domestic standards. This white/black 1979 example sports only 21,000 original miles and is located in our Milwaukee showroom. Features include a manually operated top, AM/FM radio and vinyl interior. This survivor is an all original numbers matching car. You can view this amazing 1979 MGB in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com.
