Description for MG MGB 1979

This is a really nice original car that is 95% original blaze paint, it is a survivor that is rust and accident free. All body panels and the interior are original as is the motor which runs great.
This is a very useable classic car that could be very easily improved, the paint is acceptable but being original is not perfect. The original top has a tear and will need replacing and the dash has a crack.
The car drives really well, the brakes are very good as are the engine, transmission and suspension. She drives so well she could easily be a daily driver, all the instruments work as do the lights and horn and wipers.
Unfortunately for us it will not pass a stringent California smog test and we suspect it needs a catalytic converter so it is being sold at No reserve for sale to dealers or out of State. She presents a very good opportunity for a rock solid, safe, affordable and useable sports car at a rock bottom price. These later MGBs are beginning to finally find some love and are inching upwards in value.
