Vehicle Description

1980 MG B Convertible Resto-Mod

This MG represents the total transformation of a fun but underpowered English roadster into a world class sports car with incredible performance combined with a first rate restoration inside and out.

In place of the MG BMC 4-cylinder engine this B boasts a GM 3.4 liter V6 with a Holly 4-barrel mated to a rebuilt T5 5-speed manual transmission. Under the hood virtually every component is brand new and represents a significant upgrade from stock. It has a new radiator, oil cooler, alternator, starter, clutch, bushings, headers and exhaust, drilled brake rotors with new pads just to name some of the upgrades.

On the outside the body has been totally perfected with new English Bay paint scheme, new Moss chrome bumpers, cloth convertible top and tonneau plus MiniLite wheels. On the inside the interior has new carpeting, wooden steering wheel, deluxe tan leather seats and new door panels.

It is impossible given the limited space to describe all that has been done to make this MG B truly exceptional. Many enthusiasts love MGs for their handling and the feel of an English sports car with the top down. This special MG B takes the whole experience to a new dimension.

Estimate: $15,000-$18,000
