Conceived in the late 1950s and launched in 1962. the MGB would
turn out to be one of the most successful sports cars of all time.
Attractively styled. cheap to run and easily maintained by the home
mechanic. the 'B' carried on MG's traditional role of providing
affordable. sports car motoring for the ordinary enthusiast. The
MGB was mechanically similar to the preceding MGA. though with
heavier. unitary construction bodyshell. To compensate for the
newcomer's increased weight the existing B-Series engine was
stretched from 1. 22 to 1. 98cc. while the MGB's aerodynamically
efficient lines made the most of the maximum available 95bhp to
achieve a top speed which just bested the magic 'ton'. A 'right
first time' design that changed little over the years apart from
the adoption of a more robust five-main-bearing engine in 1965
(fitted from the start of GT production that autumn) a minor
facelift for 1970 and the adoption of plastic bumpers (to comply
with US legislation) for 1975. the 'B' enjoyed an 18-year
production life and sales totalling in excess of 500. 00 cars. Its
popularity remaining undiminished today. the classic MGB is one of
the easiest sports cars of its era to run and maintain in the 21st
Century. being served by a worldwide industry of spare parts and
service providers.

This superb early righthand drive. home market. pull handle. MG
B with overdrive was built in November 1963 and delivered to its

1996 it's then current owner performed a full and complete nut and
bolt restoration over a three-year period using a brand new
Heritage body shell. the result of which gives today a rust free
original. matching numbers 1963 MG B as it was when it first came
out of the factory and one of the most desirable to own and drive
early B Roadsters. The original superb 1798cc three bearing crank
engine has been fully rebuilt and runs superbly along with the
four-speed with overdrive gearbox. again fully refurbished.
Virtually every ancillary. including the wiring loom. all
electrics. steering. brakes were replaced with 'new old stock'
parts. The interior is completely refurbished with the original
seats re-leathered in the original red. Finished in Old English
White. it is supplied with a new hood and frame. Having covered
only 6. 00 miles since 1994. all the MoT test certificates are in
the history file; this MG B wants for nothing and will be the pride
of its next lucky owner. It comes with a V5C registration document. br/>an MoT test certificate. a history file and new wire wheels. This
is an extremely rare car with many thousands of pounds spent on it
