History of the 1970-1974 MG MGB
Mechanically, the MGB was little changed for 1970, retaining its 1,798cc pushrod engine, four-speed all-synchro transmission, and all the familiar running gear. Little changed for 1972, although American market cars were distinguished by a right-side door mirror and a modified dashboard with a glove box. For 1973, the traditional chrome grille surround returned with a black mesh insert and GTs were retrimmed with a corduroy fabric on all seating surfaces. Early in 1974, the bumpers sprouted unsightly black over riders, which were only a harbinger of worse to come. For the midyear “1974 ½” models, the MGB and MGB/GT were raised on their suspensions and fitted with large front and rear bumpers to meet increasingly stringent Federal crash standards with minimal investment.
