Up for sale and ready to drive home is this 1980 Limited Edition overdrive MGB. It's a great little car with a lot of the details taken care of and a few left for the next owner.
One of the details left for the next owner is the exterior. The car could use a respray and then fresh decals. That said, it won't take long to get this paint ready. The body is straight, free from rust and only very small dents are present. The hardtop from Custom Hardtops is dent free and the glass is clear. The rubber bumpers present well and only have the lightest marks. Chrome and aluminum shines nicely. Original limited-edition wheels bear Michelin X Metric 185/70 R14 tires.
The car functions well. All the lights work including the dash. The radio is not operating. Gauges work. She starts up, runs and drives well. There is a new clutch installed, it shifts as it should, and the overdrive works when engaged. Interior fan turns on. Windows go up and down and the doors shut with authority.
One bummer is that the windshield is cracked and will need to be replaced. There is also missing interior bits, but there are a bunch of new parts installed including: heater core hoses, fuel filter, gulp valve, egr, air filter, valve cover/side cover gaskets, vacuum hoses, thermostat, water-pump, belts, radiator hoses oil and oil filter. Some other work performed include a rebuilt carb, cleaned air pump, cleaned and painted engine bay parts and a rebuilt heater control valve.
We would love to see this MG go off to someone who will finish up the details or would like to just drive it as it is. Please let us know if you have any questions, need more pictures or would like to see a video.

This late 70s B is well put together with a nice alpine white paint and records to accompany. This is a high-quality driver that functions in all ways as it should. She starts right up and stops well.
If you’re looking for a fun little car to drive this Spring look no further. The paint shines nice and looks great all around. The Rostyle wheels have been painted silver and black. The rubber on the Michelin P185/70R14 still look fresh.
The tonneau cover is newer, covers the car well and snaps into place. The convertible soft top also fits the car well and has clear vinyl to check your blind spots.
There are small tears in the seats, but overall, the interior is well put together. There is a blemish in the dash in the bottom right corner.
The trunk carries tools and jack and an extra full-size spare.
When you pop the hood to peek in the engine bay, you will find a tidy MGB 1800 motor. The motor is supplied with air and fuel by one single Stromberg carburetor. Seemingly free of leaks in a clean compartment.
Also comes with a binder full of records dating back to the 90s.
