1980 MG MGB Roadster convertibleThis is an ORIGINAL 1980 Limited Edition MGB, hat was converted to a 3.5 liter Rover V8 and Rover 5 Speed Transmission. This Limited Edition V8 MGB is absolutely stunning in every way and is certainly one of a kind. It's powerful, as a very quiet V8 rumble and is very comfortable to drive. The V8 Engine is sourced from a low milage 3500 Rover SD1 higher compression “Vitesse model” engine (extremely tight, LEAN engine. Oil is absolutely clean). The Rover 5 Speed Transmission is also very tight along with Heavy Duty Driveshaft.
The exterior of this 1980 Limited Edition is painted the Bronze Metallic which is the original color found on the EUROPEAN 1980 MGB Roadster Limited Editions (MG History: In 1979 and 1980 America recieved 1 Limited Edition MGB which was painted Black with Silver Stripes, owever Europes' version of the Limited Edition MGB Roadster was painted Bronze Metallic and Limited Edition MGB GT Limited Edition was painted Pewter Metallic Silver since the GT was still being produced in Europe only, o in reality there were actually 3 Limited Editions produced, for USA and 2 for Europe). This custom made Black interior with Bronze Metallic piping is truly one of a kind and is not a kit. ALL pieces match, ncluding: Shift Boot, enter Arm Console Lid (which has extra padding for extra elbow comfort!) along with the rear cockpit surround. This specially made interior is extremely plush and luxurious. The windshield is also restored, n item that is usually always overlooked (mainly because it is extremely complicated to take apart and rebuild!
We pay special attention to this highly visible piece on the MGB and make it even better than original, he windshield frame is chromed (which is an extremely complicated/expensive process since the frame is aluminum), his really helps tie the side vent windows together nicely since they’re polished stainless steel, ll seals are replaced along with a new windshield installed, ake for a very luxurious European looking 1980 MGB Limited Edition, nd with those little V8 badges on the side, akes for one very special MGB V8.
