This 1978 MGB Roadster by MG is the quintessential classic British road car. and its popularity remains undiminished today. This particular example still wears its original color of British Racing Green. and thanks in large part to having been garage-kept for the entirety of its 38 years. still provides excellent reflection with minimal flaws in the paint. The 1. 8L 4-cylinder engine is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission that sends its power to the rear wheels. just as the almighty car gods intended. All four corners sport the original wire wheels. with each wrapped in factory-spec rubber. It has a clean title. and has only had two owners; the car has spent nearly the entirety of its life with the second owner. who lovingly purchased it in 1980. It was. and to this day still is. a dream car. Mechanically. this little roadster is in good stead. and starts up eagerly at every turn of the key. The interior is nearly completely original. with the only "modern" amenities being an upgraded aftermarket stereo head unit and speakers. After nearly four decades but only 38. 00 original miles. this beauty is still in great shape. A car like this isn't for everyone. There are no extraneous electronics or screens. and it's not going to blow the doors off of your neighbor's Jaguar. There's nothing to interfere with the connection of driver and car. and make no mistake: this is a blast to drive. Drop the top. put on some excellent cruising music. and hit the town. This classic gem will always turn heads. The title is clean. in hand. and the car is ready to drive home today. The asking price is firm with the only stipulation that she go to a good home where she'll be well maintained. appreciated. and most importantly. driven. The car is currently located in Morton. Illinois. and will be shown to interested parties at the East Peoria police station. Please. serious inquiries only. 1978 MGB 38000 miles 1. 8 Liter 4 cylinder engine 4 Speed manual transmission Wire wheels
