Year: 1979

MG B roadster


Stock # NE-1979-42

A beautiful, rust free example, only 60,000 miles since new (clearly has always been a second or third car covering around 1,400 miles a year), excellent floors, sills, rockers, and body, very nice deep BRG paint.

Rebuilt engine, new 32/36 DGV Weber carb with electric choke, chromed headers, electronic ignition, larger aluminum radiator with thermostatic electric cooling fans, new (and entirely modern) air conditioning with a powerful supplemental heater offering comfy/cozy driving in any season, oil cooler with steel braided Aeroquip oil lines and pressure fittings,.....is almost strange for anyone with a lifetime experience with older British cars.....just turn the ignition key, hit the throttle once, it fires up instantly, warms up smoothly,and runs like....can it be?....a modern car.

Has the added sophistication of power four wheel disc brakes, 14" wire wheels (or we can install splined hub Minilites), thicker front 3/4" sway bar, rear sway bar, lowered to pre 1975 ride height, new springs and front end bushings, new 3" competition belts, has the same stronger gearbox and back axle as the six cylinder MGC, AND.........excellent wiring harness, now fitted with modern fuse boxes and fuses, lots of relays, FAR BETTER electrical system than any other MGB sold in the USA.

All new interior in tan, modern digital stereo with classic knobs (and Bluetooth), redone reclining low back seats, panels, carpets, dash and console dyed to match, wood grain dash, new top, carpeted trunk, hood and trunk hydraulic lifts, and a complete, professional chrome bumper conversion with all new bumpers, Mk I grille, new lights and sheet metal, even eliminated the side lights and fitted early Mk I pull handle doors. Quite an elaborate conversion to offer all of the improvements of a late model MGB with the classic and most attractive aesthetics of the earliest cars.

So.............a/c, improved cooling and electrical systems, improved suspension and brakes, this is a fantastic MGB, just in and ready to drive anywhere.
