Cool BRG 1979 MGB, 4-Speed, New Top, Good Body

Welcome to Street Dreams as we celebrate our 23rd year in the classic and muscle car business. Here's a classic that's a bit different from our standard fare and a perfect machine with which to enjoy the spring weather. How about this timeless British Racing Green 1979 MGB. MG's 'B' model was introduced in 1962 and remained THE definitive British sports car throughout the 1960's and 1970's. The 'B' had such a successful 18-year run, in fact, that Mazda has said they used it as a benchmark when developing their wildly popular Miata. According to the MG websites and chat rooms, this cutie appears to have its original 1.8L engine (EN 18V672Z-L37229) in the original body (CN BU23T 980132P). Additional features include a fully synchronized 4-speed manual transmission, power front disc brakes, and a new top. According to the provided receipts totaling thousands of dollars, an extensive restoration was performed in 1999-2000. The engine was disassembled, hot tanked, bored, balanced, and rebuilt. New upholstery and carpet were installed, as well as a new wiring harness, hood, and trunk lid. A full repaint followed, and the new convertible top was just installed last year. This little gem is a pleasure to drive, with a direct mechanical engagement that is unavailable in a modern automobile. And, although it was restored about 22 years ago, I cannot find ANY rust on the body. Just the ticket for soaking up a little sunshine! String back driving gloves and tweed cap not included.
