ORIGINAL 1798CC MOTOR, 4-SPEED MANUAL, BELIEVED ORIGINAL PAINT, GREAT RUNNER!

This 1979 MG MGB mixes a ton of well-kept originality with all the right upgrades where you really want it. The result is a true classic that you'll truly love to drive.

Carmine Red is a great factory color to have. After all, it gives you the bold red we all love in a drop-top, and it's also a deeper tone with a touch of sophistication. So not only is it the ideal color, but also this shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. It looks extremely well-respected for its age, and that's what you get on a car that has averaged about 1,900 miles annually. That means a great story and a finish that still retains quite a nice luster. This one also has appeal just for its overall crisp look. The bumpers are exceptionally smooth; the full-length trim highlights the straight body panels; and the Rostyle wheels are quite striking. This even comes with some nice extras like the luggage rack on the rear and a tonneau cover for over the interior.

Full roll-up windows and a proper convertible top have always given these MGBs a practical side. But really, we all want them to be open to the world, especially with this tan interior looking so good against the exterior ... Please ask for the full description.

ORIGINAL 1798CC MOTOR, 4-SPEED MANUAL, BELIEVED ORIGINAL PAINT, GREAT RUNNER!

This 1979 MG MGB mixes a ton of well-kept originality with all the right upgrades where you really want it. The result is a true classic that you'll truly love to drive.

Carmine Red is a great factory color to have. After all, it gives you the bold red we all love in a drop-top, and it's also a deeper tone with a touch of sophistication. So not only is it the ideal color, but also this shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. It looks extremely well-respected for its age, and that's what you get on a car that has averaged about 1,900 miles annually. That means a great story and a finish that still retains quite a nice luster. This one also has appeal just for its overall crisp look. The bumpers are exceptionally smooth; the full-length trim highlights the straight body panels; and the Rostyle wheels are quite striking. This even comes with some nice extras like the luggage rack on the rear and a tonneau cover for over the interior.

Full roll-up windows and a proper convertible top have always given these MGBs a practical side. But really, we all want them to be open to the world, especially with this tan interior looking so good against the exterior red. In fact, the bucket seats look particularly nice with their seat covers updated sometime later in life. This is setup to be a driver's machine with a grippy sports steering wheel, a gearstick in just the right place, and full set of gauges with large speedo and tach. Plus, there's an upgraded AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with Bluetooth to make sure you get the best in modern music in this vintage convertible.

We have dealer paperwork to show this is the numbers-matching block in the engine bay, but this 1800cc unit has also been given all the right investments. It starts with good fundaments, like electric fuel pump, newer brake lines, and a newer alternator. Plus, there's some added performance from a Weber carburetor, Pierce intake, and an exhaust header system. This is both a smooth and strong runner, and the four-speed manual transmission has a crisp action to take full control of the motor. Add to this the nimble steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and newer Pirelli tires, and you have an unbeatable driving package.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manuals and service manuals. This is the ideal mix of history and upgrades to deliver a terrific all-around MG experience. So at a value price like this, you know you need to call today!
