1979 MG MGB Limited Edition Roadster Very Rare! description

The 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. 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 in...to 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.
The following items make the Limited Edition unique as compared to the other MGB models of that time period.
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 appliqué as the wheels
A Limited Edition dash plaque installed on the glove box
This particular example is a very well maintained MG, that runs and drives extremely well.
