1798CC, 4 SPD, ACTUAL MILEAGE SURVIVOR, DEALER ADDED A/C, LIMITED EDITION, FUN!

This is a rare opportunity to own an interesting icon that has been exceptionally preserved. This 1979 MGB is a genuine Limited Edition model that's a documented actual miles machine with original paint, a stock interior, and a time capsule under the hood. And because this true classic is also a nimble British drop-top, it has the kind of attitude that's just begging to hit the road.

The Limited Edition cars are an in-demand item. It was a triple-black presentation right from the factory, and less than 6,800 were made over a two-year run. Collectors look for this car, especially one like this where the paint is believed to be the same application the Abingdon factory applied over 40 years ago! And since we don't always see this level of gloss and shine even from a resprayed black, you know this car has been treated with care. The silver striping package is a special design reserved for the Limited Edition cars, and in fact, it connects this style to even rarer LE cars that only stayed in England. So British car fans really do know this one is something special. Other distinct features of these LE cars are the deep chin spoiler and a luggage rack. And those special five-spoke alloys ...

Description

1798CC, 4 SPD, ACTUAL MILEAGE SURVIVOR, DEALER ADDED A/C, LIMITED EDITION, FUN!

This is a rare opportunity to own an interesting icon that has been exceptionally preserved. This 1979 MGB is a genuine Limited Edition model that's a documented actual miles machine with believed original paint, a stock interior, and a time capsule under the hood. And because this true classic is also a nimble British drop-top, it has the kind of attitude that's just begging to hit the road.

The Limited Edition cars are an in-demand item. It was a triple-black presentation right from the factory, and less than 6,800 were made over a two-year run. Collectors look for this car, especially one like this where the paint is believed to be the same application the Abingdon factory applied over 40 years ago! And since we don't always see this level of gloss and shine even from a resprayed black, you know this car has been treated with care. The silver striping package is a special design reserved for the Limited Edition cars, and in fact, it connects this style to even rarer LE cars that only stayed in England. So British car fans really do know this one is something special. Other distinct features of these LE cars are the deep chin spoiler and a luggage rack. And those special five-spoke alloys were a true calling card for these special edition convertibles.

The black convertible top looks original, and beneath is a full black interior. It not only gives you the ultra-desirable triple-black appearance (paint, roof, and interior), but this one also shows a well-done preservation. The main components are believed to be original, and while these MGBs are known for inexpensive replacement parts, there's no need to update things like the bucket seats when they look this good. Even details like the courtesy light is still working. And because the LE is a premium convertible, you even have features like the correct dealer-installed air conditioning unit (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) There are more nice stock pieces, like the armrest center console, Smiths gauges, and the Limited Edition glovebox plaque. But because this classic also likes being a better modern drive, you also have the right well-placed upgrades. There's a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel for proper grip, and the AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input gives you the best in upgraded driving music.

The engine bay has a great vintage look, right down to the correct Zenith carburetor. In fact, this 1.8-liter motor's date code is correct for us to believe this is the original powerhouse. More than just originality, you'll like this engine because it fires up with the kind of confidence that reaffirms the car's feeling of proper care. The four-speed manual transmission gives you good control over the full power package. And speaking of control, this MGB's nimble handling, power brakes, front discs, and modern Firestone Firehawk tires make for a very sharp sports car.

Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, this is the mixture of originality, care, and features you've been looking for. So don't miss a great driver at a great price. Call today!!!
