The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top roadster from 1962 until 1980. Variants include the MGB GT three-door 2+2 coupé (1965–74), the six-cylinder roadster and coupé MGC (1967–69), and the eight-cylinder 2+2 coupé, the MGB GT V8 (1973–76). Replacing the MGA in 1962, production of the MGB and its variants continued until 1980, achieving sales for the MGB, MGC and MGB GT V8 combined of 523,836 cars.

In structure the MGB was an innovative, modern design in 1962, utilizing a monocoque structure instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB's rival, the Triumph TR series. However components such as brakes and suspension were developments of the earlier 1955 MGA with the B-Series engine having its origins in 1947. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard, and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. A parcel shelf was fitted behind the seats. The MGB achieved a 0–60 mph time of just over 11 seconds. The 3-bearing 1798 cc B-Series engine produced 95 hp at 5,400 rpm — upgraded in October 1964 to a five-bearing crankshaft. The majority of MGBs were exported to the United States. In 1975 US-market MGB engines were de-tuned to meet emission standards, ride height was increased by an inch , and distinctive rubber bumpers were fitted to meet bumper standards.

The MGB was one of the first cars to feature controlled crumple zones designed to protect the driver and passenger in a 30 mph impact with an immovable barrier.

This exceptional example is arguably one of the finest MGB''s I have ever seen. Pampered and babied by3 owners from new, the car has always been kept garaged and used on sunny summer days only. Everything is in mint condition on this car, the paint, interior, top, brightwork, there are really no flwas to point out here, just just a great well kept car. Fitted with larger 15" wheels, radial tires, and a mahogany dash, the car is a great handling machine ready to be pressed into immediate service. Service records and all tools accompany the car as well as tonneau cover, top boot, and nice windscreen so your spouse doesn't get her hair messed up on high speed drives.

in short if you are looking for the best MGB you can find, look no further!
