1971 Tough, Entertaining & Timeless! SOLD

The MGB is a remarkable car. It deserves to be at the top of the shopping list for anybody who is looking for a classic sports car, that is practical and affordable, as well as stylish.

Given a straight choice, most people would plump for the early all-chrome grille as their favourite but for a car that was in production for 28 years, the MGB changed remarkably little.

First impressions are that the MGB is a typical sports car. Climbing in is a trifle undignified for anybody over 40 years old, and once ensconced behind the wheel you sit with your bum seemingly inches above the road and your legs stretched almost horizontally out in front. But you soon notice that this is not the cramped cabin of lesser rivals and settle in quickly. There is enough elbow room to mean you don’t have to be on intimate terms with your passenger, and even a Queen’s Guardsman will be able to slide the seat back far enough to get comfortable.

The MGB was a decent performer in its day and in a car fitted with overdrive, the engine will be spinning at a leisurely 3000rpm at 60mph and still only around 4000rpm at 80mph, making light work of long distances. The steering is still light enough not to be character-forming even at parking speeds and standard brakes are perfectly adequate.Visibility is good too.

ABOUT THIS CAR

 Chassis #: G23D036975
 Engine #: 1899RWE424405
 Manual / Overdrive
 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.
 Sound, rust free body with beautiful paintwork.
 Drives & Runs exceptionally well
 Comes with various maintenance and servicing records.

The MGB is such a popular classic choice because it simply ticks all the right boxes. It is cheap enough to consider as a daily driver, and it doesn’t arouse the same kind of jealousy in others that something like a Porsche or Jaguar can. Everything you need to keep a B running sweetly is freely available. The slightly antiquated running gear is perfect for regular use, too.

There is nothing complex under that timeless skin and the B-series engine is like a faithful Labrador - always willing, eager to please and with a lazy torque that is a million miles away from the high-strung tantrums of other exotica. It might take a few miles before you can push in the manual choke, but once warmed up a well-sorted MGB will be as docile in the stop-start of the commuter crawl as it is on the open roads you bought it for.

Transport / Shipping can be organised on Buyer’s behalf at Buyer’s cost.
