Vehicle Description

Check out this 1979 MGB Convertible has only 26,576! This MGB was assembled for export in Abingdon, UK, in April of 1979. It was sold through the British Leyland UK Sales and Marketing Division Personal Exports Division In Birmingham England on April 30, 1979 for £2,836. It was delivered to the owner, (a Ford Motor Company Executive working in London at the time) on May 15, 1979. The owner had the car rust proofed by Zeibart in England on August 22, 1979. The car was then shipped on the Royin-Maru on March 18, 1980, arriving in Jacksonville, Florida on the 23rd. It resided in Florida until sold to a fellow Ford Executive In 1993 and was transferred to Charlevoix, Michigan. In August of 2003, it was sold to the Executive's son and currently resides near Kalamazoo, Michigan. The car has been well maintained and garage kept its entire life and has yet to reach 27,000 miles. The brake lines have recently been replaced as have most rubber products for safety reasons. The engine was freshly tuned in August of 2019 and the mechanic called it a "strong runner". Issues: The tachometer does not work. There are a couple of dents/chips shown in the photos. There are also a couple paint flaws (from the factory) shown in the photo. There are also some scuffs on the quarter window and a small repaired tear in the convertible topping the driver's side. There is a split where the quarter window attaches to the top on the passenger's. These are shown in the photos. There is wear in the carpet on the driver's side on the outboard side of the well. Rust: There is no rust that I can see. This vehicle was treated with Zeibart in England within 90 days of being delivered to the owner while he was in London. The vehicle comes with a convertible top cover for when it is down, a full tonneau cover, and a 3 piece "Targa" hardtop. All are seen in the photos.
