Here’s your new MGB
This 1980 MGB was one of the last few built, as production ceased in
October of that year. This excellent example was first registered in 1981,
in Toronto. A sharp looking car, it never fails to attract attention.
The twin SU-carbed engine runs strong and smooth when warmed up, the
drive system works well, the Radial TA tires show good tread and the interior
and trunk are fully carpeted. Could use new seat covers, but shows well with
the existing originals. A new radio (2015) with media inputs (SD card, USB and
input jack) is installed. High-end Blaupunkt speakers included, but not
The fuse panel has been replaced (2016) with modern fuses and relays to
reduce load on switches, improving reliability. Similarly, relays for the
headlights and horn save the switch points while increasing light output. An
extra powered relay is installed, ready for driving or fog lights.
New gas struts allow the hood to open fully for easier access. Gas struts on
the trunk lid are much better than the original prop device. Both short and full-
length tonneau covers are included.
The body is rust free (rust-proofed since new) and the relatively new (2013)
paint job was well done. The car is never winter driven and is always stored
inside. Tires, brake pads, and top were renewed in 2013 and the engine
received a major tuneup. Mechanical work was done by Trevor White, British
Sports Car Centre in Gormley, ON.
