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 MGB is presented in gleaming white with black leather interior and white piping. The black hood and matching full tonneau cover are complimented by a stylish chrome luggage rack mounted on the boot lid and it comes with a MoT test certificate which expires in October 2018. With its wire wheels and that classic British sportscar appeal, this iconic little gem is a pure joy to drive and will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
