The English elegance
More than 500’000 MGB were produced between 1962 and 1980. Following the MGA, and while the MGC was only produced from 1967 to 1969, the MGB GT, a 2+2 coupe, was produced from 1965 to 1980.
Our MGB GT has the very large vinyl sun roof which give you almost the impression to drive a convertible.
In his time, the MGB was considered as sporty with its 4 cylinders, double NSU carburator developping 95 horsepowers.
I used to call our MGB GT a “mini Jaguar E type”, it is premium inside and outside and very easy to drive once you find the right position with the seat to accomodate the large wooden steering wheel.
