The MGB was launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA. Introduced as a four-cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in 1965. The MGB was a relatively modern design at the time of its introduction, utilising a monocoque structure instead of the traditional 'body-on-frame' construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard, and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. The MGB's performance was considered brisk at the time of its introduction, with a 0-60mph time of just over 11 seconds aided by the relatively light weight of the car.
This chrome bumper model MGB GT is in good order and has been well maintained. Some useful modifications have been made to the car such as electronic ignition and a 12 volt battery conversion.
The 1798cc engine runs well and the gearbox is smooth in its operation. Described by the vendor as being very reliable and enjoyable to drive, this white MG represents enjoyable classic car motoring at a modest outlay. Offered at no reserve.
