This 1979 MGB is coming off of long-term ownership. It has been
decades of respect with investments everywhere from the paint to
the recently rebuilt motor. And you get to reap the benefits of it
all while still getting quite an affordable price.
The MGB was a car that inspired driving passion, and some people
were a bit more passionate than most. That's why this one was with
the same owner for more than 30 years in garage-kept care. In that
time, it looks like all the right investments were made. The red
paint is a quality respray. So while this car has been enjoyed out
on the road (because that's what an MGB is all about) it also has a
gloss that loves to radiate on your sunny day drives. The level of
care in this one is seen everywhere from the shine of the optional
trunk luggage rack, to the way the full-length trim highlights the
well-fitting doors. The black bumpers have the good look of a
well-nourished plastic, and that goes well with the darker elements
like the convertible top and background of the iconic Rostyle
Since all that black accenting looks so good on the outside, you're
going to love the look against the all-black interior. The inside
also shows off more of this car's thoughtful style. The upgraded
AM/FM/CD stereo gives you better driving music; the soft
convertible boot hides the top well; and the velour cloth on the
bucket seats are particularly nice any sunny day that you hop while
wearing shorts. And of course, this one was built to be a driver.
The upgraded wood-rimmed steering wheel, ideally placed gearshift,
and full gauge package get you ready to enjoy a nimble European
Under the hood is the correct 1798cc engine. Since this has been
under the same ownership for the majority of its life thus far, it
is believed to be the car's original motor. Even the odometer is
believed to reflect total actual mileage. There was a nice
investment here less than 1,500 miles ago where the engine was
rebuilt. It was also enhanced with a Weber carburetor, Cannon
intake, and exhaust header. And everything from the condition of
the belt to the electric fuel pump in the trunk show that there was
a careful eye on maintaining a driver's classic. That's why it
fires up readily, runs strong, and the four-speed manual
transmission gives you ideal control. As you look underneath,
you'll spot everything from power brakes w/front discs to newer
bushings, and so you know this has confidence on the road.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the long-term loved classic
convertible you've always wanted. And the price will never be
better. So hurry up and call today!
