Year: 1979



Stock # NE-1979-38

What a car!!!!!!!!!!! Sort of the ultimate MGB.....3.9 liter Rover SD1all aluminum V8, new 650 cfm Edelbrock/Weber four barrel carb, guessing around 230hp, 5 speed transmission, excellent body, stripped to the bare metal and repainted (no bondo), excellent floors/chassis, all new interior, carpeted trunk, 2600 miles since rebuild/conversion, stainless steel exhaust, new cloth top, Minilites with 185/60 radials, FABULOUS car.

The Rover V8 is more than double the displacement of the original MGB 1800cc engine yet weighs less (so it retains an MGB's light, very precise steering). And with a five speed transmission, general driving is more like a modern car. As a 1979 MGB, has power assist disc brakes, a bigger more efficient radiator, stronger back axle, front and rear sway bars.............either 'as is' or with further modification (hmmm, lets see, IF it was MY car, what would I do? Maybe a set of WIlwood four piston front calipers, maybe rear disc brakes, maybe a thicker front sway bar, maybe dye the interior in Camel, maybe this or that....And we can easily convert the car to wire wheels if wanted. .Geez, all the things I did to my own V6/five speed MGBGT and anything else you might wish.

Easy to service, cheap to repair, tons of performance, and the 'quality feel' afforded by most any MG. Just in and ready to drive anywhere.
