Description for MG MGB 1980

1980 MG-B

1980 MGB Convertible in nice, restorable condition. 1.8 litre, 4-cylinder motor, 4-spd manual transmission. Intake system w/ dual SU carbs. (Rear carb needs new bowl gasket and is currently being bypassed.)Complete front suspension upgrade to modern tube type shocks, etc. Over $2000 spent on the front suspension upgrade alone. Handling and ride is much improved over original factory lever-type shocks.

Recent new interior, exhaust, gas tank, fuel pump, radiator. Brand new front tires and battery installed last week (June 30th, 2020).

Undercarriage is very clean and solid. All electrics work except radio and cigarette lighter. All locks work and have keys for everything.No under carriage or body rust issues, but clear gloss, top coat is peeling and needs to be re-done.Due to not being driven, hydraulic clutch slave cylinder is currently inoperative and needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

Up until 2016 car was one of our daily drivers, but only during good weather.

This is a nice, fun car to drive around, especially with the top down. It gets a lot of attention, too.

Can be inexpensively FULLY insured as “Historic Collectable” with Historic plates for less than $200.00 per year.

HAGGERTY classic car appraisal value for this car in 2014 was over $12,000.00

Our total investment into this car exceeds $14,000. Must sell due to moving. $3,500

Although the car is in very nice condition, it needs to have the clutch slave cylinder repaired in order to be driven and is being sold as "USED, AS-IS." Please remember that this is a 40 year old British sports car and needs to be properly maintained and cared for as such.
