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 T-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.

 

Originally registered on 26th June 1972, this MGB presents in very good order throughout. Recent restoration work has been carried out and we are advised this chrome bumper example drives as she should, with no known faults. MGs’ are a great entry level into classic car motoring offering relatively simple mechanics coupled with excellent owners clubs offering plenty of support. Offered for sale with a V5C registration document, this MGB roadster is great way to enjoy ‘wind in your hair’ motoring and is offered for sale without reserve.
