Lot 202 - 1981 MG B
|Result||Sold - £4,032|
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 with production continuing until October 1980. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina with the launch of its sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the GT offered the utility of a hatchback while retaining the style and shape of a coupé.
Reported to be the last ever registered MGB, this was originally a rubber-bumpered example but was sent to the Mallalieu works after purchase which offered a service supplying chrome bumpers. The suspension was also slightly lowered and the radiator grill swapped over. Owned by the vendor, his company and then his son, this extremely useable MG has remained in single family ownership throughout its entire life. It presents in good condition throughout and has an MoT test certificate valid May, 2016.
