1969 MG B Roadster
The roadster was the first of the MGB models to be produced. The body was a pure two seater but a small rear seat was a rare option at one point. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while 3 inches shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. The 4-speed gearbox was an uprated version fully synchronized in all 4 gears. 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. In 1969, three windscreen wipers instead of just two were added to sweep the required percentage of the glass, high back seats with head restraints. and side marker lamps.
This particular chrome bumper MGB is an excellent drivers car that was sold and maintained by us for a local gentleman for over the past 15 years. He has just recently decided to pass it on to a new owner and asked us to find a new home for it. The car is of course the desirable chrome bumper model with original chrome grille. It also has dual carbs that give it more performance than later cars that were subject to strict US mandated emission controls. This MGB has kept in very original condition retaining it's one year only high back leather seats piped in contrast red, curved dash, and factory air pump which is still in functioning condition. The car has optional chrome wire wheels, tonneau cover, and later cassette radio. The car also has the original owners handbook, jack, knockoff hammer and jack bag that the factory provided. The car is not a show car and has some touched up blemishes but is quite presentable for casual cars & coffee events. A strong suite for this "B" roadster is the engine that has great power, excellent oil pressures, and very quiet. If you are looking for a good starter collector car that can be used and enjoyed this is the one for you!
