Lot 316 - 1972 MG B Roadster
|Result||Sold - £7,280|
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 MGT 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. Handling was certainly one of the MGB's strong points.
This two owner MGB was originally registered on 25th April 1972 and is supplied with the original handbooks. Sitting proudly on wire wheels, this MG is fitted with an overdrive unit on the gearbox. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years' MoT test certificate, we are advised RDR343K drives with no known faults; enjoy classic summertime motoring at a modest outlay.
