Big investments, a terrific color combo, and the joy of the open road all come together on this this 1979 MG MGB to deliver a terrific sports car experience that's heightened further by the value-oriented price.

This is the kind of color combo that will instantly catch your eye. The MG-correct Russet brown is a rich color that's enjoying a resurgence in popularity today. And because this is a professional respray, it has a terrific gloss that looks great in the sunshine – exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly droptop. There have been some nice investments in this car's restoration, including at least $15k at Glen's MG Repair (a well-known shop in the MG community.) You'll love the detail work like the front chin spoiler, Rostyle wheels, and full-length trim that showcases the quality of the body panels. And gold MGB stripe running down the side adds even more distinction to this convertible. Plus, the tan convertible top looks great when in place, because it has similar tones to the exterior color – almost like a triple earthtone car – very distinctive.

There's more of that great tan look inside, and you can tell there's plenty more terrific investments. Taut bucket seats, a center console, and upgraded glossy wood-like trim really make this a nice place to spend some time. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input so you can get the best in modern music in the vintage droptop machine. More than just look great, you're going to enjoy the drive, because this one was built around you. The stick shift is in the perfect spot for your right hand; the upgraded steering wheel feels grippy in your left hand; and the full gauge package with large speedo and tach are clear and easy to read. Even the trunk is nicely finished so you'll be proud to show everything off.

The engine bay looks fresh, and that's for a very good reason. There was a nice investment here about 1,000 miles ago where a reconditioned MG motor was installed. A quality job with a tidy look means you're going to lifting the hood wherever you park this MG... But that's only if they can get you off the road long enough to show it off. This newer motor is paired with a four-speed manual transmission that was replaced about 5,000 miles ago. So that makes for a strong-running and crisp-shifting total package. Plus, there's power brakes w/discs up front and the kind of sharp steering that makes the MGB one of the best ways to experience the open road.

The sale comes with the owner's manual, maintenance records, and build receipts. This is the classic convertible with distinct looks and great quality. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
