The Model: From the end of WWII up into the 1960’s, MG produced a succession of sports roadsters and limited coupes that introduced thousands of people to the wonderful world of the sports car, be it for the road or the track. When the B­-series was introduced for 1962, it was a revolutionary step forward. It marked MG’s first use of a monocoque structure construction that reduced weight while at the same time provided more protection for the passenger with “controlled crumple zones” thus supporting one of the company’s mottos, “Safety Fast”. When the Mark II edition was released in the fall of 1967 it featured some real improvements starting with an all­-synchro transmission, a dual­-brake master cylinder, redesigned rear axle, alternator electrical charging with negative ground, and improved handling. Considered by many as the best of the MG­B’s, the Mark II was a solid, reliable car.

The Car: There is a very strong enthusiasm for the MG­B, and why shouldn’t there be. When introduced, the MGB was miles ahead of the competition in regards to styling and performance. This example is finished in one of the most popular colors available on the MG­B, British Racing Green with black vinyl bucket seats and matching folding soft top. It has been given a full restoration and presents itself quite well. Body panels are well lined up and both doors are operating as they were designed, closing tight and secure. Fitted with wire wheels, this car has a bit of “old­ world” elegance combined with modern­day sporty appeal. Under the hood does show a bit of patina, which is ample proof that this MG­B isn’t a trailer queen. One of the economical ways to break into the world of British sports cars, this MG­B is one vehicle you may never want to let go of.
