Description

The MGB was launched at the 1962 Motor Show having a new monocoque body construction and the B-series engine bored out to 1798cc. Response was immediately favorable. The cars were soon entered in races and proved very successful. As sales were slowing in 1965 the GT was introduced and, although much heavier, proved to be a good seller. In the late sixties the American need for µsafer' cars and pollution regulations gave the engineers a headache. Various mechanical changes kept the car up to date. In 1975 the American specification black bumpers were put on UK cars and BL rationalization, which favored Triumph, meant an end to the MGB. This is a book of contemporary road tests, new model introductions, technical and specification data, long-term tests, buying second hand and history.
