Technical specifications, photos and description:
In reality British Leyland made the decision to comply with USA regulations and suffer the consequence of upsetting other markets including the home market.
The bumpers were not popular in the UK and the ride height was also raised in order to comply with headlamp regs thereby upsetting the cars handling!
So in todays classic car market where do they stand and are they still unpopular?
The answer most certainly is an early 1960s MG B with chrome bumpers and wire wheels still looks the nicest version of the whole 18 years production but like everything in life the rubber bumper models have a place in history and “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.
There were only 420 LE Roadsters built and only 208 with wire wheels so it is guaranteed to be a safe investment.
This example has enjoyed ongoing maintenance and around £6000 spent within the past few years including mohair hood. fuel tank. suspension etc.
The current result is a superb condition LE that also drives beautifully and presents well.
She has a good history file including original BL books etc. even a stamped service book is in the pack!
Surely a car worth keeping and maybe one day in the future the rubber bumpers will look as good as the old fashioned chrome?
