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. It 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. The performance was considered brisk at the time of its introduction aided by the relatively light weight of the car
This lovely British convertible sports car is presented in red with a black interior and comes with a tonneau and black hood to match. A luggage rack has also been fitted for those long weekends away and there is a history file with various old tax discs dating back to 1997, together with some old MoT certificates dating back to 1994. The black carpets are in good order and we understand there is also a spare set available with the car and also spare mats. These cars are fun to drive and earlier examples such as this are becoming more desirable.
