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 and black leather interior with white piping. The black hood and matching full tonneau cover are complemented by a stylish chrome luggage rack mounted on the boot lid. Sold by Historics to our customer in 2017 and having been enjoyed by him since this MGB is presented with an MoT test certificate which expires in March 2021. A lovely example with electric fan and braided hoses to the delightful engine bay and with its wire wheels giving it that classic British sportscar appeal, this iconic little gem will be a joy to drive and will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
