FUN CRUISER, 1798 CC 4 CYL, 4 SPEED, NICE INTERIOR, TONNEAU COVER, GREAT COLORS

There are not many better ways to enjoy a warm day than taking a traditional British convertible sports car down a twisting country road. This 1979 MGB is a wonderful foray into a time when the cars were elemental and pure, and the driving experience wasn't measured on a clock, but instead by the size of the grin on your face.

The MGB is one of those cars that everyone loves to see because they know it's built for pure pleasure. The compact proportions are ideally suited for carrying two passengers, and there's no extra fat to steal performance. The taut bodywork is now an icon that is pure retro cool. The chrome trunk rack adds a bit of class and is something you'll find useful on your next weekend getaway. But what really makes this roadster standout is the paint. Red was a factory color, but next to those, this MGB will look like a premium upgrade thanks to a respray in a hue borrowed from the Mercedes palette.

This is not the kind of cushy interior that comes from a turnpike cruiser, but if you've read this far, you already knew that. Instead, the entire inside envelops the driver like a second skin. The space between the three-spoke wheel and the stick shift (both with factory optional wood accents) is exceptionally close for comfortable and quick performance. This entire interior feels quite original right down to the AM/FM/cassette stereo. The driver gets a full set of gauges with a large speedometer and tachometer as well as dials for other vitals such as oil, fuel, and water. The tan interior is in great condition, and over the coming years it will resist UV fading much better than the black ones. Since you'll be spending most of your time with the top down, the included tonneau cover will certainly come in handy.

Power comes from a sprightly 1798cc four-cylinder motor. With a sporty exhaust note and a willingness to rev, the engine lives up to its British roadster pedigree by offering a mighty experience in a small package. The sound of the powerplant, the slickness of the four-speed gearbox, and unmatched tight handling are some of this car's many virtues. There is a surefooted feeling on the road thanks to the iconic alloy wheels with disc brakes behind the front set. This car comes with maintenance records and the owner's manual, so you know it has lived a cared for life. But if you do feel like spending a weekend tinkering with this one, the parts are easy to obtain and install.

The MGB is one of those rare affordable icons. It's as easy to own and maintain as a VW Beetle but runs in much cooler circles. Call now!!
