MG B GT 1971


Specifications


Description

The B was an epochal car for MG. During its 18-year production run, it became the world's best-selling sports car.

When launched in 1962, an 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.

In 1965, the B's appeal was considerably widened with the launch of the GT. Its fastback roof, designed by Pininfarina, followed conventional GT styling cues but resulted in disarmingly good looks. The raised windscreen height and side windows meant that there was a realistic amount of headroom for those in the front, although the rear-seats were really only useful for luggage.

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.

The traits you experience that make this MGB GT such a good starting place for classic car ownership are based on a number of key factors. 

  • Comfortable and plenty of leg room, this car is very cosy inside for two.

  • Its also a 2+2, so great for young kids to come along or for additional storage.

  • Fixed steel roof – so its not a problem to drive if the weather turns inclement.

  • Instantly recognisable styling, cosy interior, Smith's dials, MG badge, powerless steering, predictable handling and classic front engine, rear drive balance.

  • Manual with Overdrive

  • Well maintained and serviced by MG Specialists – Servicing records available.

  • Body and Paint in perfect condition.

  • Beautiful interior in excellent condition

  • Drives and Runs like a dream

Under the skin, the GT is pure Roadster, and that means tidy handling and excellent performance.

This MGB GT offers year round classic car entry ownership with bags of club support if required.
