Classic MG MGB for Sale

A lively little speedster. Two-seater convertible. The MGB was a sports car, which the MG division of BMC released in May 1962 as successor of the MGA and which was built till December 1980. The Roadster, released in May 1962, was the first model in the MGB series. It was a pure two-seater, but could be ordered with a small, single rear seat on request, but this rarely happened. By better space utilization the MGB offered more space for passengers and luggage than its predecessor MGA, although it was 76 mm shorter. The chassis was softer than the MGA, which improved ride comfort, and with the larger engine a slightly higher top speed was achieved.

When it first appeared, the MGB was considered modern. It has a self-supporting body, which reduced vehicle weight and manufacturing effort and gave the car greater stability. The MGB's performance was quite respectable at the time, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just over 11 seconds due to its low weight. Easy handling was one of the strengths of the MGB. The 1798cc BMC B engine with triple bearing crankshaft - the same one used on the Austin 1800 with only two SU carburettors - produced 95hp (70kW) at 5400 rpm. In October 1964 the engine was fitted with five crankshaft bearings, which increased its reliability.

The vehicle is in a good and nice condition, has overdrive, shifts very nicely and runs cleanly and smoothly. It has no rust, a good top and impeccable leather seats.
