1964 MGB Roadster


Specifications


Description

 

The MGB was greeted with great excitement when it was launched in 1962.

It was the latest in a long line of sports cars from the British carmaker, that had come to define the very essence of what a sports car should be.

The MGB also caused a sensation because it was such a shift away from MG tradition.

It’s the archetypal British sports car - tough, entertaining and timeless - a remarkable car.

Just consider the statistics: in production at the start of the Swinging Sixties, it lasted 28 years before finally bowing out in 1980, as Margaret Thatcher was bringing about her vision of utopian Britain. In that time, no fewer than 386,961 B Roadsters left the Abingdon lines. And after the factory closed, the B fueled the growth of a remarkable industry geared solely to maintaining, improving and recreating the breed.
