For Sale: 1980 MG MGB in Mooresville, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

HIGHLIGHTS: Final run 1980 MG MGB Limited Edition! Driver-quality car ready to hit the streets!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body is remarkably straight for a British auto of this vintage that has not seen a restoration. Imperfections are present, as shown in the photos, but this MG would be a great little driver and an even better start to a high quality restoration.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The Limited Edition MGBs of 1979 and 1980 were kind of the 'last hurrah' for the MGB, and as such were all finished in the same distinctive color combo of black paint with silver decals. This MG is wearing what appears to be both its original black paint and silver decals. The big plastic bumpers are a polarizing attribute among enthusiasts, but they sure do look nice against the black paint! All of that being said, it is worth bearing in mind that the paint and bumpers on this car are now 42 years old, and have the flaws that one would expect to come with age. While this MGB photographs great, when you get up close defects such as fading and cracking are visible in both the paint and on the bumpers.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior in this MG also appears to be all original, and is aged in the same manner as the exterior. Considering that this is an unrestored car, the interior is in good original condition. The original Limited Edition plaque can be seen installed on the dash. Aside from normal wear and age, notable interior attributes include an older aftermarket stereo and aftermarket speakers installed in the doors. Note that one speaker is missing.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Don't let the aged exterior appearance fool you-this MG runs like a champ! With the classic 1.8l 4-cylinder under the hood (the same engine found in MGBs for almost 20 years!), this MG is the buzzy little sports car it has always been intended to be. The engine runs great, the 4-speed transmission shifts as it should, and this thing fires right up every time! Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay is clean and intact but showing some age.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The unrestored condition, and how delightfully well it runs.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: These final year MGBs aren't for everyone.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? That depends entirely on what you want to do with it! As it sits, this car is ready to hit the road. The horn, radio, reverse lights and turn signals are not currently operational.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for an affordable, comfortable, cool-looking cruiser should take this little MG into consideration. Whether you're looking for an affordable driver, or something to take to the next level, this MG could be a good choice!
