Everyone knows an MGB! Arguably the most popular British classic car, and for good reason. Produced between 1962 and 1980 the MGB is the quintessential British sports car. Light with a revy 1800cc 4-cylinder engine sending drive via a manual gearbox to the rear wheels.
The replacement to the MGA the MGB sold in huge numbers with over 500 thousand being produced, ahead of its time using a unibody structure instead of the normal body over frame design of most cars of the time giving the MGB great rigidity and in turn sharp handling due to its lighter weight.
The MGB was one of the first production cars to use crumple zones to protect its occupants from impact.
Later cars were facelifted to satisfy the American market and crash standards. These cars from 1974 onwards were raised slightly and larger wrap around style rubber bumpers replaced the earlier slender chrome versions. A popular modification in the UK is to convert these “rubber bumper” models back to pre-facelift by replacing the bumpers and fitting earlier spec suspension and in the case of better conversions such as this one even going to the trouble and large expense of converting the wheel assembly to take wire wheels with knock off fasteners.
This 1975 GT has undergone that very conversion giving it the looks of an earlier car without the now huge cost (presentable examples of earlier cars regularly achieve £15,000-£20,000)
Bumpers, suspension and wheels have all been changed by a previous owner as well as a repaint in a non-standard MG grey which contrasts nicely with the tidy blue/black interior.
Fitted with a wood rimmed steering wheel and glass pop top style sun roof this car is a very affordable way of entering the classic car world and was driven to site by the current owner.
