This 1979 MGB is a great example of what these cars would look like from the factory. The limited edition black paint is clean with no major deficiencies the car shows extremely well. The original top was beginning to show its age so the current owner decided to replace it with a period correct one and now looks brand new. Under the hood the original 1798CC 4 cylinder is a viable option for a car that weighs less than 2000 LBS. The original electronic ignition is in great working order and seems to have no issues as the car starts right up and idles nicely. Power is smooth and really comes to life at the higher RPM’s just like it should. The 4-speed synchronized manual transmission shifts nicely with the clutch having great feel.
