The B was an epochal car for MG. During its 18-year production run, it became the world's best-selling sports car and since it went out of production in 1980, by which time, it was already a classic, an entire support industry has grown up around it.
When launched in 1962, a up to-the-minute specification meant it was a delight to drive compared with its rivals, as well as being a significant step forward from the MGA. There was plenty of power on tap, thanks to its upgraded 1.8-litre B-series engine. Four-speed gearbox with overdrive, rack-and-pinion steering, independent front suspension, and disc brakes were standard fitments right from the start.

The MGB is arguably the most popular classic car. In its time, the MGB would have been a rival for the likes of the Fiat X1/9 and Triumph Spitfire. For a car that can trace its roots back to 1962, it handles very well. The rack-and-pinion steering provides the kind of feedback drivers of modern cars can but dream of. It's a proper sports car driving experience – you sit low down, and its four-cylinder engine creates a pleasing rasp.
What's really surprising is how torquey the B-series engine is. Most of the time, you can leave this torquey sports car in fourth-gear, flicking the overdrive on and off using the switch on the gear knob. If you do need to change gears, the gear change is a smidgen on the notchy side, but a short throw means it's not too much of a chore.
Priced well. A great wee investment and fun too. Way better than having your money sitting in the bank.
