Designed in-house at MG, with final styling by Farina, the new MG MGB was launched at the 1962 Earls Court Motor Show. Its appeal was instant, offering a huge increase in interior space while having overall dimensions less than those of the MGA. Capacity was enlarged from 1,622cc to 1,798cc and via twin SU carburettors it developed a respectable 94bhp at 5,400rpm and 107lb/ft at 3,500rpm which, allied to a four speed gearbox, allowed the handsome new MG to achieve 0-60mph in 11.4 seconds and a top speed of 105mph. Universally acclaimed, the MGB was to become a symbol of the Swinging Sixties. And as with all MGs, it was soon very active in competition. After an inauspicious two car entry at Sebring in 1963, an Abingdon works car won its class and finished 12th overall at Le Mans in the same year, courtesy of Paddy Hopkirk and Alan Hutcheson.

Chassis 363248 has had only two owners from new and is described as being in excellent condition throughout. It has recently been subjected to a 350-hour body rebuild using all original panels, with the exception of the sills and rear quarters. The engine has also been rebuilt using the original unit and lightened, balanced and fitted with a new Duplex timing chain. The gearbox has also been rebuilt, the brakes replaced and a new interior fitted in piped red leather.

Complete with tax and MOT valid until March 2010, current V5 and heritage certificate. An excellent chance to acquire one of these much-loved little MGs which is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
