Harry's Thoughts

THE ESSENTIALS

SOLD!! Off to Puerto Rico!!!

This is as close as you can likely get to a brand new 1980 MGB roadster. With only 9,000 miles covered since new and essentially put away as a collector car since new, this is nearly perfect (as perfect as an MG can be). This is the last of the series for MG. This is almost completely original. Except for the correct radial tires which were replaced in 1989, this is an untouched original.

We love the livery in Carmine Red. This MGB has had no paint repair or body work. The paint looks as good as when it first left the factory. The interior is Beige vinyl and looks excellent. The only options is the addition of the overdrive, which make highway driving more comfortable for the motorcar and passengers! The car includes the top boot, tonneau cover and historical documentation.

This MGB was bought by our consignment client in March 18 of 1992 from Tom Flannery of Scottsdale. He was the original owner of the MGB. Tom had the radials replaced in 1989.

Our client is the long time owner of Max of Switzerland who was the area dealer for Rolls Royce, MG and all things sporty and fun. The mileage at that time was 8,606.

Max preserved his car collection and kept the very best. This MGB immediately made its way into his collection and was well maintained all through the years. This is not the car abandoned in the barn, neglected for decades. On the contrary, Max always had his mechanic service his cars and put enough miles to ensure that it is properly maintained. This car today runs and drives as an MGB should.

It’s time for this MGB to have a new loving caretaker. You will be hard pressed to find such an incredible example as this. Call Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.

Interesting Fact: The MGB succeeded the MGA, both of which were produced by MG, in 1962. Production continued on this model until 1980, which ended with over 523,000 cars being manufactured. Assembly on the MGB occurred in multiple areas, but originally began in Abingdon, England before eventually moving to Australia. The car itself is a powerful beast, with a 0 to 60 acceleration time of around 11 seconds with a power output of 95 horsepower; both respectable numbers for the time period. Crumple zones were first introduced on the MGB, a game-changer for the automobile industry, when a driver was killed in a collision with a taxi. This event led to the development of safety standards for the auto industry as a whole. There is a four-cylinder and eight-cylinder option for the MGB, but both are known for providing a fantastic driving experience. Car collectors and enthusiasts alike still try to get their hands on this model!
