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. It was assured that the cars were always black as there was an agreement between "Leonia" and all North American dealers that the "LE kit" would be only installed on black cars and to buy a black car of that time period, it had to be a Limited Edition only. Less than 2800 were produced in 1980

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.

The following items make the Limited Edition unique as compared to the other MGB models of that time period. it must be also noted that the North American model came only in the "Tourer" body style and not the GT.

  • Front air dam
  • 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
