OVERVIEW

The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), as a four-cylinder, soft-top roadster from 1962 until 1980. Its details were first published on 19 September 1962. Replacing the MGA in 1962, production of the MGB and its variants continued until 1980.

In structure the MGB was an innovative, modern design in 1962, utilizing a monocoque structure instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB's rival, the Triumph TR series. However components such as brakes and suspension were developments of the earlier 1955 MGA with the B-Series engine having its origins in 1947.

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. A parcel shelf was also fitted behind the seats.

Our MGB offers a slightly modified sportier version of the original roadster. When restoring this car we opted for the more robust 5 bearing engine, and added overdrive capacity for both third and fourth gear. To assure safety alongside this improved performance, we have fitted full-servo disc brakes on all four wheels.
