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. The MGB achieved a 0-60 mph time of just over 11 seconds. The 3 bearing 1,798 cc B Series engine produced 95 hp upgraded in October 1964 to a five-bearing crankshaft. The majority of MGBs were exported to the US. 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 200 ton barrier.

This MGB roadster is a 3 owner car with 12k original miles. It has been a local car its entire life and much of that time serviced by here in our shop. This MGB has all of the most desirable options available including an electric overdrive transmission, wire wheels, tonneau cover and boot cover. A factory Limited Edition MGB front spoiler has also been fitted. A modern 2 barrel Weber carb has replaced the vintage single Stromberg unit and a heat wrapped header installed all for improved starting and performance. It also has the original jack bag, jack, hammer, and owners manual. This original Vermilion Red MGB is in near pristine condition and drives as new. If you want to enjoy the pleasure of driving the country roads or a quick trip up the highway, this is the classic British sports car for you!
