The MGB, launched in May 1962 replaced the MGA. Introduced as a four-cylinder roadster the 2+2 coupé (MGB GT) followed in 1965 with production continuing until October 1980. The MGB GT designed by Pininfarina as a sporty ‘hatchback’ style and by combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the BGT offered the utility of a hatchback while retaining the style and shape of a coupé. Relatively few components differed although the MGB GT did receive different suspension springs and anti-roll bars and a modified windscreen which was more easily and inexpensively serviceable. Acceleration of the MG BGT was slightly slower than that of the Roadster due to its increased weight. Top speed was 105mph due to improved aerodynamics.
Registered on 16th September 1975, this MGB was manufactured as a ‘rubber bumper’ model and converted to the more aesthetically pleasing chrome bumpers in March 2015. The silver/grey paintwork is in lovely condition over chrome wire wheels. The black interior is in good order The car has been very well maintained supported with a substantial service history file of invoices and a speedometer change, it is thought the total mileage covered by this MGB GT could be around 40,000 miles although this is not warranted.
MG’s are an ideal first classic car as they are relatively simple to maintain and any parts required can be sourced from the various Owners Clubs.
