After the considerable world-wide success of the MGA, it was obvious that the MG's successor would have a tough act to follow. Considerable development had gone into the new car which, unlike the MGA with its separate chassis, was to be of monocoque construction to enable production output to exceed the record 100,000-plus run of the MGA.

Designed in-house at MG, 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. Power came from the tried and tested B Series four cylinder engine, though with strengthened bottom end and capacity increased from 1,622cc to 1,798cc. Via twin SU carburettors it developed a respectable 94bhp at 5,440rpm which, allied to a four-speed gearbox, allowed the handsome new MG to reach 0 60mph in 11.4 seconds and 104rnph. Suspension remained as for the MGA, i.e. independent coil spring wishbone at the front with a live, leaf-sprung rear axle.

The car on offer here was originally registered in 1967 and purchased by its current owners in 1993, since when it has been in regular use and stored in a garage. Three years prior to this, in 1990, the car was fitted with a new Unipart Gold Seal engine. It was subjected to a restoration process in 2003, and since then various mainenance works have been carried out on the car, which are documented in its history file.

Described as being in fair to good condition, the car comes complete with V5 certificate, MOT certificate and service history. An excellent chance to acquire one of these iconic little cars for a reasonable price.
