We are proud to present this 1979 MG B, one of the finest examples of this model we have had at GR Auto Gallery. The MG Model B was produced from September 1962 until July 1980 at the Abingdon Works. The Plant was closed by Margaret Thatcher as part of the British Government's Privatization Plan. The "B" was the successor to the MG A, and because of the popularity of the car, it became synonymous with the definition of sports car. A total of 512,243 MGB's rolled off the line at Abingdon, of which 386, 961 were roadsters, and 125, 282 were MGB GT's. More MGB's were sold than any other British sports car. The MG B defined the meaning and character of the sports car, and gave it life.
This particular model is a two owner vehicle, and has been in the possession of the current owner for over 25 years. It has had the pleasure of receiving many improvements including new seats, head rests and interior panels. The biggest selling point to this vehicle is the very rare factory overdrive gear within its transmission. A near spotless example that you cannot see any clear signs of deterioration, this is clearly a well kept model throughout its life! The previous owner has included the boot covers as well as the tonneau cover, both in great condition. The original trunk tools as well as the tonneau prop rods are also part of this wonderful package. We are informed that the engine was rebuilt in 2008 by Oregon engine rebuilders and has seen under 2,000 miles since. An added Webber downdraft carburetor and chrome valve covers sets off the engine cabin and a new set of tires installed less than 300 miles ago help ensure this fine ride is ready to be taken out for a ride!
Many other additional new installs on primary and non-mechanical parts to this vehicle have been replaced in addition to what is mentioned, this vehicle is ready for its new owner to enjoy! Call us soon to hear more, it will not be here long!
