I bought an '80 in May of '81, not LE, no A/C or OD for $8279 including 4%
MI sales tax from Bob Owens sales in Westland, MI.
BTW, I had to sell it in 89 to help purchase new home. It had 42K miles on
it and I saw it just last summer with 64K miles on it and in exactly the
same condition as when I sold it. New owner (now 4th) had my original
sticker, odometer statement and bill of sale. Told him I wanted first right
of refusal should he decide to sell it!
A little more MG Magic I suppose.
