HIGH BIDDER WINS***


You're looking at a 1980 MGB LE (limited edition). date made 12/79.   Under 7. 00 of these cars were made.  Very solid. nbsp;rust-free car.  Runs and drives. but will need attention before it is road worthy.   It's been sitting since 2007. but was started and driven. although not registered.  The tires are old with dry cracking as are the hoses and belts.   The brakes work but are soft.   The emergency brake works.   They both work well enough for loading and unloading the car for transport.  I opened the radiator cap and it looks pretty dirty.   It needs flushing.  Shiny paint. but not perfect. Everything works. heater. wipers. lights. blinkers. horn. tachometer. gauges. The radio does not work and the antenna is broken. The dash pad has a crack on top and a spot of vinyl is missing on the passenger side. The driver's seat is ripped. The passenger seat is good. The carpet is good but it could use some new MG floor mats. The door panels are nice. no rips.   One license plate light is missing. The smog equipment is there but I have not tried to smog it. The tag riveted on the side of the motor looks like it says: 8V883AEL043230.   Under the hood there is a sticker that says made in Taiwan. so the hood may have been replaced. The gas tank has a dent in it. but it does not leak and is fine for driving purposes.   The driver's side fender needs an area of body work.  It's actually right between two body lines on the fender. so it would be an easy fix for a body guy to blend it in.  The odometer reads 74. 84 but I am not sure if that is the actual miles. Comes with a luggage rack but is missing some parts for assembly. The glass is all good. The top is good. but the plastic window is cloudy and there are some small tears around the plastic window.   It will keep the rain out. Comes with a hard top that I believe is aftermarket.  It has a clean California title in my name and is in non-op status (no back fees for California residents).   To sum it up. it's all here. it's not rusty. it would make a great little project for someone that likes to tinker.   Put some tires on it. look into the brakes. hoses. etc. . and drive it the way it is or drive it while you restore the rest.
