1980 MG MGB MGB Limited Edition, nice original car low miles
Rosner MotorSports is delighted 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, J to mark the end of new MGB sales in the North American Market. The production period of the North American version “LE” was 1979-1980. An agreement between British Leyland, the U.S distributorship and all North American insured that the “LE kit” would be only installed on black cars and to buy a black car of that time period, t 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, umerous 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 dam
L.E. Five spoke alloy wheels, anufactured by GKN, ith MG hub center appliqués
Silver lower body stripes
Leather covered, added, hree spoke steering wheel with a special center hub. This uses the same MG applique as the wheels
A Limited Edition dash plaque installed on the glove box
Our 1980 MGB Limited Edition Roadster is finished in original black exterior with the optional tan interior. This roadster has fewer than 20k 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, cylinder engine produces about 65horsepower 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, his is the time to add this reasonably priced classic to your collection. Contact Bob Reilly at Rosner MotorSports at 540-287-4378 for additional information.
