1980 MG MGB

I am selling my 1980 MGB Convertible, at NO RESERVE! This car was previously owned by an older gentleman in my neighborhood that had an extensive and impressive collection of older English cars. This was to be his next restoration project, but he never got around to doing it. The car is in good shape overall, but it has been sitting for about 5-years, so it will need some attention before hitting the road again. This is the last year for the MGB, and I think one of the best.
This MGB has the 1.8 liter, 4-cylinder motor, with the dual carb setup. It also has a 5-speed manual transmission. The body is in overall good shape, with some signs of surface rust, a couple rust bubbles here and there, and the typical rust under the door mirrors. The interior is in good shape, but the passenger seat has a tear on the shoulder, and the headrest. I hooked up a battery, but could not get the car started. I spoke to the previous owners son, and he stated that his father was tracing down an issue in the ignition switch, in the steering column. I have verified that the motor turns freely, and it shifts smoothly through all the gears. There is a spot of rust in the trunk, and it has developed into a small hole (see pics). The roof will need replaced, as the back corner windows are toast.
Overall, this is a great classic that won't need too much to be road ready. These don't come up for sale like this very often, so don't miss out!

The car has a clear title, notarized and ready to go. I am happy to sell internationally, but the buyer must arrange the shipping. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or if you need any additional detailed pictures of the car.

This car is sold as-is, where-is, with no warranty expressed or implied. It is the duty of the buyer to inspect the vehicle prior to purchase. Any bidders new to Ebay, or with zero feedback will have there bids cancelled if they have not contacted me prior to bidding.
