  • Description

Designed in the late 1950's and introduced to the public in 1962, the MGB was to become one of the most popular sports cars of all time. Beautifully 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 previous MGA, though with unibody construction bodyshell unlike the MGA's separate chassis. To compensate for the newcomer’s increased weight, the existing B-Series four-cylinder engine was stretched to 1,798cc, while the MGB’s aerodynamically efficient lines made the most of the 95bhp. The MGB’s popularity remains undiminished today, one of the major factors being the continuing availability of spare parts and expertise, making it one of the easiest of classic sports cars to run and maintain and is certainly one of the most fun to drive.

 
Offered here is the ultimate of all the MGB's, an early chrome bumper, steel dash pull handle car. On top of that, it is a mid year 1965 which was the last of this early configuration, but with the first offered 5 main bearing engine. From 1962 until early on in 1965 MGB's had a weaker 3 main bearing engine. This particular car was in an estate on Long Island from the early 1970's until 2014 when the car was restored. Originally a black car with a red interior, this car is stunning. It has its original radio and original and very handsome early banjo steering wheel. It was also upgraded to 15 inch Austin Healey wheels and new Pirelli tires which really give this B a fantastic look. It also has a brand new top and its restored original fold away top mechanism. If you are looking for a great MGB then you should certainly consider this car.  Contact us today for more information.
