Well cared for and a fun weekend cruiser at a great price!!! Automotive History: The MG MGB Limited Edition was a marketing endeavor between B-L and the U.S. distributorship in Leonia, NJ to boost slipping sales in the North American Market. The production period of the North American version "LE" was 1979-1980. All North American dealers could install the kit but only on black cars. There were 6,668 produced in the two years of production. The ironic thing about the "LE kit" is that it is partially made up of parts manufactured in the U.S. The front air dam and luggage rack were made in the U.S. and then shipped over to England for packing into a kit that was then shipped back to the U.S. with the cars selected to be "LE"s, which were then installed by the selling dealer. This is why some "LE"s do not have a luggage rack. The dealer no doubt pulled it from the kit to put on another customer's non-LE car. Items included in theLimited Edition kit: Front air dam L.E. Five spoke alloy wheels, manufactured by GKN, with MG hub center appliqués Silver lower body stripes Luggage rack Leather covered, padded, three spoke steering wheel with a special center hub. This uses the same MG applique as the wheels A Limited Edition dash plaque installed on the glove box Finally, there were the UK-market "LE" models. These were not quite the last 1,000 cars built. These cars were made between August and October 1980, but they were stock-piled and only released for sale in January, 1981. There were 580 GTs, all with cast alloy wheels and painted "Pewter Metallic" with silver lower body stripes, and 421 roadsters all painted "Bronze Metallic" with gold lower body stripes, of which 208 had wire wheels and 213 had cast alloy wheels. The last roadster, #523001, and the last GT, #523002, were both completed on 22 October 1980 and went straight into BL's Heritage collection at Gaydon, England.
