The MGB was launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA and was
introduced as a four-cylinder roadster; a coupé with 2+2 seating
was added in 1965. The MGB was a relatively modern design at the
time of its introduction utilising a monocoque structure instead of
the traditional 'body-on-frame' construction used on both the MGA
and MGT types. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs
while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were
standard and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of
legroom. The MGB's performance was considered brisk at the time of
its introduction with a 0-60mph time of just over 11 seconds aided
by the relatively light weight of the car. Handling was certainly
one of the MGB's strong points.

We are delighted to offer this rather pretty MG B Roadster. In
circa 2007/8 this Abingdon offering was subject to a rebuild that
included a new Heritage body shell. In doing so. it was decided to
give the car a retro look by fitting the earlier chrome bumpers in
place of the heavier looking rubber items. A set of Minilite style
alloy wheels complement the coachwork and the interior is very
smart. with the seats recently being re-trimmed with extra lumbar
support enabling those longer journeys to be completed in more
comfort. Our vendor purchased the MG in 2012 as a birthday
present for his wife who had enjoyed one during her university days
and since then they have both taken pleasure in regular. reliable
trips. particularly to France. In recent times the MG has also
gained electronic ignition and a new water pump. A fresh MoT test
certificate will accompany the MG to sale. Offered with an
attractive estimate. this pretty MG is sure to find a lucky new
owner who may look forward to a spring and summer of open air
motoring.
