The MG B is powered by a 1798cc, 4 cylinder engine with 4-speed transmission, and is a very roomy 2 seater sports car that makes a great choice for taller drivers requiring additional legroom.

This MG B is a rare example that has been very well kept and maintained, is highly original, and presents a great opportunity for the new British classic collector.
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 (1965–80), 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. The MGB bodyshell was reprised in modified form with a limited run of 2,000 MG RV8 roadsters (1993–95).
