    This one of a kind fully restored 1980 MGB has been through a rotisserie, frame off restoration by the previous owner 1,700 kms ago to represent the earlier chrome versions of the classic MGB. This rare Canadian car is one of the last ever built. Additions such as chrome wire wheels, grill, mirrors, bumpers and trim finish off the look of this classic piece of art. The sought after O/D transmission and new Weber double barrel carb makes this beauty drive like a dream. Includes custom microfiber car cover & black tonneau cover. Over $25,000 of work was done to this beauty at 100K kms. There are only 103,550 kms on this original car.
    Absolutely no work needs to be done to this car. Oil changes done twice a year and stored indoors. This car has NEVER seen a drop of rain since restoration. Owned and serviced by car enthusiasts. With a recent newborn in my family, I am unable to make time to enjoy this beauty and is now available for new ownership.
    Car is stored in Thornhill, ON and will come out to Toronto once the weather warms and the salt has washed off the roads.

    Asking: $16,800
