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 with production continuing until October 1980. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina with the launch of its sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the GT offered the utility of a hatchback while retaining the style and shape of a coupé. Acceleration of the GT was slightly slower than that of the Roadster due to its increased weight although top speed was improved by 5mph to 105mph due to better aerodynamics.
Originally registered on 18th December 1972 this MGB presents in delightful condition. Extensive work has been carried out in recent times including an engine rebuild and an overhaul of the rear axle. The bodywork has also been taken care of with the car finished in British Racing Green and the interior has been re-trimmed in black with red piping and red carpets. A good history folder accompanies this MGB as does a Heritage Certificate and a V5C registration document. We are advised this MGB GT will be presented for an MoT test certificate prior to auction. MG’s are a great way to enter into classic car motoring with the marque well supported by the MG Owners’ Club.
