Year: 1980

MG B Roadster

$16500

Stock # NE-1980-42

Just in........a well kept, excellent example of the 'Limited Edition' submodel. Either as is or further improved, a wonderful starting point. And only 65,000 original miles.....1,500 miles a year.

Excellent body and close to ;as new' original black paint. "Mirror image" finish and (literally) 'laser straight' bodywork. Very clean tan interior. No observable rust underneath, clearly has led a happy life. We did a compression test: 145-150 psi compression in every cylinder (excellent rings and top end), 70-75 psi oil pressure (excellent bottom end), no smoke, transmission and clutch work well.

Has its original 'Limited Edition' alloy wheels (including the spare), nice leather aftermarket steering wheel, modern 'classic' digital stereo, fairly new 185/60 radials, exhaust looks fairly new, everything works and it drives wonderfully.

In the trunk, its original tonneau, good convertible top, nice and tidy engine bay with excellent wiring, AND we can offer this car with the best original factory hardtop we have even seen. And in matching color.

Now, as is....a nice classic British sports car that starts instantly, runs flawlessly, and really doesn't 'need' anything. However we (as a group of enthusiasts) decided the car was FAR too good to leave as an ugly rubber bumper car. Hence, just finished a complete, professional chrome bumper conversion, new Mk I grille, filled in/paint blended corners. Now, absolutely beautiful.

For hot weather, we offer a very efficient modern a/c unit that is designed for this car and provides a 'factory look.' We can lower the car to the pre 1975 ride height, offer a wire wheel conversion, and for more performance, a new 32/36 DGV Weber carb with racing headers and electric choke.

Regardless of which we one goes, the basic car is an excellent starting point. And a beautiful 42 year old classic sports car.
