Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1979 MG
MGB! A lot of the mechanicals have been touched, and the interior
was replaced September 2021 along with door seals. Overall the MGB
is in good running order and a perfect option for a driver's
quality car, or do service the paint/body after 42 years of use!
The engine is a 1.8-liter four cylinder with a 4 speed synchronized
transmission. The engine code provided by the seller is
18V883AEL037746. The body code provided by the seller is
GU23T974827P and the VIN is GHN5UL491106G. A short, but not fully
inclusive, list of repair items are as follows. New tires installed
at 33,430 miles, carburetor overhauled, clutch master cylinder,
brake shoes, both front steering gear boots replaced, rear
transmission mounts, gearbox bushings, engine buffer mounts, and
the rear drive shaft and u-joints refurbished. This work was
primarily done between August 2020 and September 2021. For an entry
level roadster there are few better than a British roadster. The
MGBs had a lot of stuff figured out and the 1.8 liter engine
provides JUST enough power to have some fun safely and there is a
plethora of aftermarket support options for these and most
communities have active MG clubs! The paint is believed to be
mostly original and shows some flaws and cracking throughout. There
is also part of the door skin lifting near the passenger window
trim / passenger side mirror. This 1979 MG MGB is offered by the
St. Louis sales staff and can be seen in full detail on our
website. Our listing all include 100+ HD photos and a detailed
video! GatewayClassicCars.com Video: https://youtu.be/FEpjieGeeZs
