1970 MGB Roadster
The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed from 1962 until 1980 by the British Motor Corporation, later the Austin-Morris division of British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top sports car. Development of the MGB started at least as early as 1958. In structure the car was an innovative, modern design in 1962, utilizing a unitary structure, instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while being 3 in shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. The four-speed gearbox was an uprated version of the one used on earlier MGB's.
This 1970 MGB has been very nicely restored in arguably the best color to show off the most sporty lines of this iconic british sports car. The black color was only used in the early MGBs, and then later brought back for the Limited Editions produced in 1979 & 1980. The complete black respray is show quality and very well set off by the 60 chrome wire wheels. The upgraded black leather seats piped in contrasting red certainly puts the exclamation point on this great looking car! Some additonal improvements to this 1970 model MGB include retrofiting a one piece rear bumper and the handsome early chrome grille. A factory style luggage rack has been added, twin Lucas driving lamps added to a chrome badge bar, and chrome stone guards installed over the headlights. The car has a black folding vinyl top and black vinyl tonneau cover. We have given this MGB good going over in our shop, road tested it, and find it ready for a new home.
