Vermillion Orange

This 1980 MG MGB has a great total style where the outside and inside are highly original. But under the hood, there have been solid investments in the fundamentals and added pep. It all makes for a true classic that was truly made for driving.

Vermillion Orange is the kind of color that has a boldness that looks good on a fun classic. And not only is it the factory-correct paint, but this also shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. The finish is far from perfect, but there\'s an admiration from an earned respect over the last 40+ years. So you could use the value price to give it a respray, but right now, we really like the thought of a car that celebrates the final year of the MGB by preserving its paint. Plus, the overall presentation continues to impress. The full-length trim helps to add emphasis to the straight body panels and good gaps, and the black bumpers and good-looking folding top offer a stylish contrast to the orange. And this has the right classic feature you want, like the luggage rack on the trunk and bright Rostyle wheels.

As good as this might look with the roof up, we all really know the secret to enjoyment is when the top is stowed. You can take it down easily with one hand, and with just a little more effort, the convertible boot buttons it all up for a tidy style. You have a stylish black interior. There are no ostentatious upgrades, but instead just obvious maintenance so that you have good carpeting, and a smooth dash. There are handy features like cup holders and an AM/FM/cassette stereo. And what you\'ll like the best is how the bucket seat, grippy steering wheel, and Smiths gauges are all just part of a solid driver\'s package.

Under the hood is the correct-style 1798cc motor. It has the clean look of investment, including newer pieces like water pump, coolant, alternator, belt, plugs, wires, and distributor cap. There\'s also added pep for upgrades like a newer Weber carburetor, Cannon intake, and an exhaust system with header. It makes for a terrific runner. And the four-speed manual transmission is your key to get the most out of this powerhouse. Plus, power brakes, front discs, and nimble steering make this the kind of classic you\'ll love to drive.

This MGB has the right classic style to be a proper tribute to the final year of this legend. It also has been given the right investment to make sure you\'ll happily show off this history everywhere. Call today!!!
