The production of 1,000 LEs (421 Roadsters/579 GTs) in October 1980 marked the end of the line for home market MGBs. The LE (ie Limited Edition) Roadsters were all finished in Metallic Bronze, trimmed in Orange/Brown cloth and featured distinctive Gold stripes on their flanks, Triumph Stag-style alloy wheels and deep front spoilers. The price tag was £6,445, for which you received a very well-sorted two-seater sports car capable of reaching 60mph in 14 seconds and a terminal speed of 105mph. They have inevitably become collectable, and the very smart 1981 example offered has been described by the MG Owners' Club Workshop 'as completely original and never welded or in receipt of any panel work'. It presently displays a credible though unwarranted total of 50,500 miles from new and comes complete with its original book pack containing owner's manuals and service record, plus a comprehensive history file and an MOT valid to July 2, 2019.
