Description

VIN Chassis Number: GVGEJ1A6512628

First Registered: 01.08.1980

The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed from 1962 until 1980 by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later the Austin-Morris division of British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top sports car. It was announced and its details first published on 19 September 1962. Variants include the MGB GT three-door 2+2 coupé (1965–1980), the six-cylinder sports car and coupé MGC (1967–69), and the eight-cylinder 2+2 coupé, the MGB GT V8 (1973–76).

Replacing the MGA in 1962, production of the MGB and its variants continued until 1980. Sales for the MGB, MGC and MGB GT V8 combined totalled 523,836 cars. After a 12-year hiatus, the MGB re-entered production as the heavily modified MG RV8 with a limited run of 2,000 cars before finally being replaced in 1995 by the MG F.

Craner Classics are delighted to offer this very exceptional example of a 1980 MGB Roadster Sports finished in gleaming black paintwork, complemented with cream Connolly leather interior and Damask Red mohair roof.

The car comes complete with the very fetching wire wheels which really do set the car off along with a chrome luggage rack and tonneau cover.

The interior of the car is outstanding with beautiful cream Connolly leather interior and walnut dashboard.

The exterior black paintwork is finished in a mirror/glass effect set off with the very striking Damask Red mohair roof.

The Roadster was notably fitted with a replacement Gold Seal engine unit in 1991; overhauled overdrive in 2001; and spring kit in 2012. Additional work includes electronic system recommissioning in 2012, with engine timing and tuning and servicing completed the subsequent year.

The car has clearly had thousands spent on it and it really does stand out as a very striking example of this very popular classic British sports car.

We expect this vehicle to create a lot of interest so would urge interested parties to contact us ASAP to avoid any disappointment.
