1980 MG MGB Roadster for sale by Auto Haus of Naples AutoHausFL.com
Just arrived is this remarkable example of the sporty and desireable MGB
Roadster from MG/British Leyland, a 1980 convertible model in stunning
Burgundy Metallic with tan interior. This ultra-clean and low mileage MG
has been owned by an affluent local couple for many years, and is pretty
much entirely original with the exception of a very expensive paint job, in
which the exterior of the vehicle was disassembled, stripped to bare metal,
and refinished to better-than-factory quality. The interior is original
and unrestored, as is under the hood and trunk. The car has no malignant
rust underneath with firm floorboards, no corrosion under the battery box,
and brkaes and suspension in excellent condition - it is a tue survivor.
It runs and drives extremely well, and is an absolute blast to take down
the road, with great clutch feel, smooth shifts, tight steering, and
like-new road handling. Do not miss this one! Phone us at (239) 273-1150
or (239) 261-3600 for sales information.

MGB V8 Roadster trip to the new forest 2013
A few days ago my dad and I took the MGB for its first proper run since it
was finished. We covered nearly 300 miles, averaged 22mpg and the temp
stayed rock solid between 170-180! Our baby is now 100% reliable and we're
looking forward to more outings.
Please comment and let us know that you think.
MGB V8: Starting from the back ...again
An electrical connector fell off at the start of qualifying so we never got
a timed lap. So... back of the grid again... And another funny race. I made
it up to 5th at the driver change and looking at the lap charts, my fastest
lap would have put us on the front row. Somehow I don't think the race
would have been so much fun from P2 though...
The new Rover V8 in my MGB - Starting for the first time
So, after a year or so I have finaly inserted a new V8 in my MGB. This
video show the very first (and successful) attempt at starting the new
engine. After 7 years on the road, the original engine's block cracked 1
month before I retired and moved to Lyme Regis in July 2007. I've never
performed anything major like this before, so this was a big and anxious
The first track day for the LS1 MGB GT
The first track session for the LS1-powered MGB. The goal was just to play
with the car and get a feel for its behavior at the limit, and identify any
weak spots. Plus have some fun.
The first time I came on to the straight, I did provoke the car to see how
it would behave. A little bit slow on unwinding the countersteer, but no
harm done. I got the balance right later on. That's why you test on the
More exciting was what happened at the end of the video. I think the vented
gas cap was leaking a bit of fuel on hard left turns, and I eventually
managed to light it off. No harm done to anything other than a rubber
gasket that got a bit hot, but it's definitely something that needs to be
sorted out before the car sees this sort of use again!
The car is a 1972 MGB fitted with a modified LS1 V8 and custom suspension
all the way around. It really only looks like an MG. Weight is 2400 lbs and
power is approximately 350-400 hp. For more information on the car, see

MGB Roadster in the New Forest
An edited version of a short trip in the New Forest in my 1970 MGB Roadster
(red, chrome bumpers, wire wheels, walnut dash and overdrive). Sister in
car with me (aged 13, hence some odd utterances), and my phone was taking
the video attached to the windscreen by a tacky, cheap, plasticky thing I
bought off Amazon for all of £5.99, hence the rather shaky video.
