The MGB was launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA. Introduced
as a four-cylinder roadster. a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in
1965 with production continuing until October 1980. The MGB GT
sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina on launching the
sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with
the rear deck lid. the GT offered the utility of a hatchback while
retaining the style and shape of a coupé. This new configuration
was a 2+2 design with a right-angled rear bench seat and far more
luggage space than in the Roadster. 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 GT was
slightly slower than that of the Roadster due to its increased
weight. Top speed improved by 5mph to 105mph due to better

This stunning MGB GT Coupé was originally registered on 1st
December 1978. Restored recently to a very high standard. we are
advised by the vendor that she drives "outstandingly well". Whilst
carrying out the restoration project the car was modified to look
like an older model with chrome bumpers thus combining the 'best of
the old' with the 'best of the new'. The paintwork is in excellent
condition. as is the leather interior. Fitted with a full length
sunroof and 'mini-lite' wheels. this MGB is supplied with a V5
registration document and a current MoT test certificate. A highly
useable classic for a modest outlay.
