1979 MG MGB

1979 MG B Roadster

With numerous buyouts and mergers, the MG moniker became increasingly less funded, due to concentration of efforts to market other models within the waning British Leyland Company. The MG MGB sports car was the first new sports car for hundreds of thousands of Americans and likely was owned by at least half a million because it had second, third and even fourth owners. A good number of MGB's are still around, mostly in restored condition.

A restored version with numerous panels and suspension parts getting attention, we give you a visually very nice condition example of the B from 1979. Everywhere one look at this car you see no rust, and nice paint or finished interior surfaces. Save for the large bumpers (which was the Brit's way of getting around the 5 MPH law) and known as the phase 4 version, this car is a great little, nice running, sports car.

Exterior
Thinking of a British sports car in anything but green, one may question the brown exterior color. However, a glance then a good look at the fit and finish on this car will give one pause to question this outdated thought of the green. Excellent paint, nice bumpers, a clear chrome trim spear, and a nice black vinyl convertible top. Unfortunately, there is invasive rust on the rockers, and lower fenders on every corner. Original restored chrome wire wheels are noted on all 4 corners.

Interior
With snappy exterior complimenting camel colored stitched reverse 3D vented style vinyl buckets flanking a small but very clean black console housing the mini wood topped knob shifter, and a clean little dash, the interior becomes very comfortable all be it tight (but I'm reminded it is a sports car). An aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette radio sits proudly in the center, and is bordered by temperature control knobs, and a seat belt warning light. Standard tach and speedo with water and fuel gauges front the original steering wheel and sit in a field of Black textured vinyl...all clean. Lastly, a note about the clean black pile carpeting and the camel colored door panels, both very nice.

Drivetrain
A pop of the bonnet and we are met with the 1800cc engine, a Weber carbureted 4 popper, sitting in an original and clean engine bay. This is backed by a 4-speed manual gearbox.

Undercarriage
Giving the car a lift, we see POR-15 coated with some recent patches of this material in darker black. A mostly rust-free environment undercarriage save for a few steel parts that have surface rusting. Frame, and suspension are solid, and as mentioned we can see the invasive rust on the exterior panels working its way into the unibody at the rocker areas. Independent coil spring suspension up front and leaf springs on the rear, and front disc and rear drum brakes tell the story.

Drive-Ability
Starts right up, a bit of a climb downward to get in, but good acceleration, smooth ride and comfortable interior, especially the seats. Stops quickly and safely with no pulling to one side.

If you have a hankering for an attack of a winding country back road, with the top down, sun in your face, and wind in your hair tool, then this nice example is probably beckoning. This well dressed, classy British royal is a fine thing to look at and a fun thing to drive. With some rust remediation, and you will be spit spot!
