* Manufactured in very limited quantities for the Canadian Market, makes this unique "Factory Original", extremely rare - different than any 1980 MGB  made for the US market. Note that this 1980 final year production model was part of the lowest production years, of the best quality MGB ever built. 

* The original owner purchased it new, in Montreal Canada and immediately drove it to Florida. It never saw Winter weather and was sheltered in A/C and Garage for most of its life. In 2016, this baby was inherited and eventually sold to me through a broker I was working with.
