Technical specifications, photos and description:
Lets be honest MG tried to fill a large gap in their range by introducing the MG C in 1967 and they failed in spectacular fashion with a combination of bad press and poor pre production development work.
It took an independent enthusiast though called Ken Costello to show them how to shoehorn the brilliant Rove/Buick engine into their shell.
Indeed MG even commissioned Ken to build them one of his “Special V8 MG Bs” in order to save development time and money.
This lovely example has been owned by its last owner for 26 years and has received ongoing maintenance as necessary meaning she is in wonderful condition today.
Finished in Harvest Gold from new she is backed up a comprehensive history file including Mots dating back to 1980.
She is fitted with a Webasto sunroof and has the benefit of a stainless steel exhaust.
I had not driven a V8 for years and this one just took my breath away with its evocative V8 burble turning into a glorious roar when pressing on.
With overdrive on 3rd and 4th she is a great long distance cruiser and you could set off anywhere knowing that you will have great fun in this underated car.
The MG B V8 is an enigma really as its costs a fraction of its peers like the E type or Aston Martin whilst being rarer and in many ways more entertaining and useable!
