Undeniably fun to drive, this 1980 MG MGB represents the chance to own a classic, nimble droptop thats perfect for open air motoring at a good price. Its got historical significance, as well, being part of the last class of MGBs built at the famed Abingdon factory just outside of Oxford - a facility renowned for their production of dozens of winning rally and race cars. br / br / MG filled a niche by building an accessible, comfortable and reliable sports car for the masses, in the process doing away with the extreme temperamental nature and design quirks inherent in so many cars that came previously. They were able to get the job done while consistently refining both the mechanical engineering and aesthetics of their cars and, as a 1980 model, this particular MGB represents the culmination of those efforts. Its a great looking car - sporty and able-bodied, and the white exterior shows off those good looks. Showing nice, even paint from top to bottom, and fresh, unscuffed rubber on both the front and back bumpers, it looks fresh and gives the car an undeniably road ready vibe. The black manual convertible top is free of tears and moves into position without issue, and youll notice both the windshield as well as the glass to both sides is clear and unscratched. As befits a car with such an extensive rally heritage, it sits low and level to the ground, but with ample clearance for its tires to deal with imperfections in the road. br / br / One of the tangible results of MGs constant efforts to improve their cars becomes pretty obvious when you step inside and slip behind the wheel. Unlike many sports cars before it, this MGB has a surprising amount of leg room, eliminating the need to assume a driving position with knees virtually straddling the steering wheel. Theres a respectable amount of shoulder room, as well, so two normal adult-sized passengers can hit the road in sporty comfort. Its a nice-looking interior, with a very cool, burl-patterned dash looming just behind the steering wheel, harboring a full complement of gauges still easily readable through clear lenses. The durable-looking black vinyl buckets still appear plenty comfortable, too, with higher backs than often encountered in cars of this stature. Between them, the center console provides some storage space, as well as a convenient resting place for an elbow as you cruise the asphalt. Unlike most convertibles of this era, its equipped with A/C, although it does seem to need a shot of freon. A modern AM/FM/CD player resides just beyond the floor shifter in place of the original AM / br / Pop up the hood and youll see a tidy looking engine compartment, with an 1800cc inline 4 cylinder sitting front and center - a fitting powerplant for a car weighing just 2500lbs. Its in good form, starting right up and running strong. Paired with a 4-speed overdrive transmission, therell be no worries about excessive revs at highway speeds. Youll see an electric fan sitting just behind its radiator for more efficient cooling, so this is also a ride that should deal well with stop and go traffic during those times when you arent fortunate enough to be out on the open road. And with power brakes all the way around - discs in front- this MGB can stop as nimbly as it carves corners. This fine example of British automotive engineering sits on a set of Mini Cooper rims, wrapped in Bridgestone / br / In the market for a classic, agile droptop thats road ready and comes at an affordable price?
