1980 MG MGB

MG MGB (1980)
for sale

Price: US $3,500.00


1980 MG MGB The front bumper, (NEW) radiator, perfectly tuned Zenith carburetor (just rebuilt; have receipts for service *see below) , side covers and exhaust manifold are all currently removed for deep clean and/or media blasted.
Fans, reservoir tank, windshield washer pump, ignition coil, trunk carriage rack, side mirrors, dash pot, gas cap and windshield wipers have all been professionally polished to a shine. Upgraded to larger rims w/chrome beauty rings) and tires in more perfect condition than original, although all 10 tires are in excellent condition with less than 400 miles (I only put 100 on each set/95% tread and they shine up nicely) and will consider including with the sale if local pickup in AZ 85301 this weekend.
All smog components work perfectly; nothing is deleted. Replaced original smog pump and still have, if you want.
If you saw prior listing, you saw the ugly stuff: bend in the boot where p/o closed incorrectly; the paint imperfections are few and very small but will shine nicely with a quick buff; no rust.
Sent all instrument gauges to Nisonger (best in the biz) for complete rebuild/refurbish whilst I installed the Dash Top Cover from MOSS and removed all the electrical demons I could find; replaced main fuse box, indicator/wiper, light switch clusters, a few additional relays (*Glen Frost upgraded something I didn't completely understand regarding the/a relay(s) but the takeaway is he assured me there should be zero electrical problems... and that's rare for still having 65% original Lucas electric parts). The convertible top has those two half dollar-sized holes/tears (p/o strikes, again!) on either side but functions perfectly. I deep cleaned the plastic windows and are very clear/back zips down fine. Full tonneau cover strangely does not fit perfectly (3cm short of attaching to dash in the middle) but looks great with other two other connectors securing it. Half tonneau fits perfectly; one strap broke.Refurbished jack and tire iron in pouch w/original refurbed strap.
New headlights (no upgrade) and replaced all seals for tail lights, side markers, etc.
Both seats were completely torn down to the frame, painted and rebuilt; small tear in passenger side appeared afterwards and have not re-installed new foam and cardboard backing on that one.
*Glen Frost rebuilt the already strong Zenith carburetor, replaced window wipes and felt, replaced radiator and hoses @ $1600 and I have receipts.**I also have receipts for so many new extra parts including stickers, complete rubber replacement set from MOSS Motors/Vitoria British.***The ride was so smooth that the p/o must have upgraded the suspension bushings but I don't have proof (it was just such an incredibly smooth ride @ 75-80mph as well as maneuvering rough bumps, etc...yes, she cruised at 80+mph PHX to Tucson and back, twice with no problems.)* *If this can be gone from my shop this weekend (8/15), all extra/random MGB parts are yours. I don't want to spend the time to sell the $600+ in parts that are laying around; I've got other projects to finish and need the room. I will miss her very, very much and sad I can't sell her complete but it wouldn't take much to re-assemble. Last three photos are most current.
Happy bidding!
P.S. If you reached out to me during other listing, I did not respond in time before auction ended and you were close with that offer but my friend Craig may list it locally tomorrow, so check into that and we can talk.
