Year: 1979

MG B roadster


Financing available⤵

Stock # NE-1979-50

Quite the car.........66,000 original miles, excellent body, chassis, floors, etc. AND..........4,000 miles on rebuilt engine, new supercharger assembly, rebuilt T9 five speed transmission, just finished a comprehensive chrome bumper conversion including elimination of the side lights (all new chrome, lights, bumper guards, sheet metal, blended paint, new Mk I grille), lowered to pre 1975 ride height (poly front bushings, new springs, new tie rod ends), new 15" Minilite style alloy wheels with 195/60 H rated tires.

Awesome, actually.

Top is in good condition, same with boot cover, gray seats with black panels, new wood dash, wood steering wheel, digital stereo, hood and trunk struts, carpeted trunk with spare wheel cover.

Has a new radiator (and the later cars, such as this one, had a much larger radiator) electronic ignition, thermostatically controlled radiator electric fans, front and rear sway bars, power assist disc brakes, AND.......yes, it really goes. Runs at 4 psi boost (a 7 psi pulley is available for more performance), pulls like a V6 powered MGB and very very smooth. Even from 2,000 revs, strong performance coupled to the close ratio 5 speed transmission.

For distance cruising at any practical speed, the proverbial country road sprint, and especially taking to a local show, it is a sensational MGB which is obviously the product of a lot or money spent, a lot of time and planning, and more than likely, starting with an excellent low mileage rust free car.

Now, in ordinary circumstances, yellow isn't my color (had a yellow Morgan years ago and my wife, at the time, used to call it 'the yellow devil')...but considering this car being spectacular, and taking into to account how much investment in time and money went into the project, I guess its a color to grow on one. But, sure, want BRG or red or black or anything else? My guys are quite practiced at complete color changes and we can dye or redo the interior in any color one might choose. Either way, its a great car and one that doesn't come on the market that often.
