1980 MG MGB MGB
HII'amdelighted to offer this rare and desirable example of British Leyland motoring history. The 1980 MGB Limited Edition was a marketing endeavor between B-L and the U.S. distributorship in Leonia, NJ to mark the end of new MGB sales in the North American Market. The production period of the North American version "œLE" was 1979-1980. An agreement between British Leyland, the U.S distributorship and all North American insured that the "œLE kit" would be only installed on black cars and to buy a black car of that time period, it had to be a Limited Edition only. There were 6,668 produced in the two years of production.In addition to the color specific exterior, numerous components are specific to the Limited Edition model. These items make the Limited Edition unique in comparison to standard MGB's of 1979-80. Here's a list of those components Front air damL.E.

This roadster has82k miles and the overall condition indicates it was always garage kept. The convertible top is in excellent condition as is the factory tonneau cover. The 1798 cc, 4 cylinder engine produces just under 100 horsepower and is matted to a four-speed manual gearbox. Hydraulic disc brakes are installed on the front with drum brakes on the rear. This great car represents the refinement and culmination of the MGB series that began in 1963. Our MGB-LE is a terrific car to drive and it's certainly nice enough to be proudly shown at any event. As MG prices continue to rise, this is the time to add this reasonably priced classic to your collection.
