Classic Car Auctions says:

A very special MGB roadster...
This good-looking 1979 MGB Roadster has just arrived back in the UK from Ireland and is being offered for sale with an MoT until next January. It has clearly had money lavished on it over the years and is a 'Compilation' car. Finished in Dark Blue it has a lovely modernised tan leather interior including the door cards and dash top.The car rolls on 15" Minilite alloys and has been 'de-bumpered'. It's fitted with a 'Sebring' front spoiler, a Mk1 grille and a sixties chrome luggage rack. It's also had an engine rebuild over recent years and sounds throaty with a pair of K+N filters. There are some old MoTs and invoices in its history file. The 'look' of this MGB has been carefully thought out, mixing the mid-sixties sporty look with a modern interior, and we think it works.
