The MG MGB is the quintessential British sports car of its era. It was made available in several different versions from the British manufacturer, ranging from an open roadster to a three-door 2+2 coupe. The car was offered with a slate of engines spanning an inline-four and six-cylinder, as well as a V8. After its initial introduction in September 1962, numerous incremental improvements and upgrades were made until the final roadster rolled off the production line in 1980. To commemorate 18 years of MGB, a special Limited Edition model was created for the 1979 and 1980 model years. All of the limited edition models were finished in black with unique silver graphics on the side and featured a plaque on the dashboard designating its pedigree.
