1980 MGB

1980 MGB

The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed from 1962 until 1980 by the British Motor Corporation, later the Austin-Morris division of British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top sports car. Development of the MGB started at least as early as 1958. In structure the car was an innovative, modern design in 1962, utilizing a unitary structure, instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while being 3 in shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. The four-speed gearbox was an uprated version of the one used on earlier MGB's.

1980 is the last year for the MGB production! This extremely well done Tahiti blue MGB has won awards at the local all British car festival. It comes WITH rare factory overdrive which is actually a 5th gear that allows for higher highway cruising speeds and improves gas mileage. It has been also been fitted with Weber Carb for easy starting and improved performance. Period correct alloy Minilite style wheels add to the sporty stance and improve handling characteristics. This MGB comes with black tonneau cover, jack, and owners manual. There has only been 500 miles since being restored, stunning in person and drives like new.
