For Sale: 1979 MG MGB in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1979 MGB reminds you that the best British drop-tops delivered the best driving experience. So it's time to hit the road in a car that's bold, affordable, vintage, and truly made for enthusiasts.

The MGB is one of those cars that everyone loves to see because they know it's built for pure pleasure. The compact proportions are ideally suited for carrying two passengers, and there's no extra fat to steal performance. And the body has sleek lines that make every drive feel like you're on an adventure. The yellow paint is quite vibrant, and the black bumpers and roof make for a nice contrast for an almost two-tone look. The finish is not perfect, but you likely don't want it that way. It keeps this a car that's ready for a drive at a moment's notice. After all, the best back roads have loose stones, and not all of us want to worry about every pebble on the pavement. And the full story on this one is the presentation of the details. Good body panels let the bright full-length trim look almost like an unbroken line. The rear luggage rack is the perfect British sports car accessory. And you even have the iconic Rostyle wheels. So this one really represents a fun roadster that looks good in your driveway and begs you to take the long way everywhere you go.

The interior has an inviting presentation where the reupholstered seats, good carpeting, and smooth dash make you want to get in and drive. Of course, that's also because this MG was made to engage you. It's in the grip of the sports steering wheel, placement of the stick shift, and crisp Smiths gauge with large speedo and tach. It really reinforces the driving attitude, right down to details like the clean trunk with a full-size spare and AM/FM/CD stereo for better driving music.

Under the hood is well-presented with good maintenance and newer items like the alternator, belts, valve cover, and air grabber. There are even good upgrades like the Weber carburetor and Pierce intake. And at its core, the 1798cc four-cylinder block even has the right casting to possibly be original to the car. It fires up eagerly and runs strong. The four-speed manual transmission, power brakes, front discs, and nimble steering are all part of a terrific package that puts you in the center of the action.

Complete with service manuals, this is the iconic affordable roadster that has the exact setup for those who love to drive. So if the open road is calling, answer it with this MG. Call now!
