Why is the MGB such a favorite with classic car hobbyists? The answer is simple: It is good-looking, fun to drive and easy to maintain.
These are the same reasons the MGB, with a few changes, was successful in the new-car market for nearly two decades. Today, good examples are not impossible to find but getting harder. They are inexpensive to buy and backed by a fantastic network of MGB enthusiasts to provide support and share the fun of ownership.
A brief review of the MGB’s history provides an easy answer to what is considered the “best” MGB to buy: The cars from model years 1966 and 1967 get that accolade. They still carried the classic body style, highlighted by shiny bumpers and a pretty grille.
Under the bonnet, the engine had been converted to a very reliable five-main-bearing design that produced nearly 100 horsepower at the flywheel. Inside, the beautifully upholstered seats came with lovely contrasting piping, and the dashboard was adorned with black crackle-finish paint and toggle switches, evoking memories of fighter planes and the Battle of Britain.

As with all classic cars, the best of the breed attracts the highest prices, so it isn’t surprising that these cars have the highest values. However, even for the very best restoration of the most desirable model, prices, although appreciating, are still at a level that wouldn’t buy a half-decent Austin-Healey of the same vintage.
This is a very beautiful, well priced, popular classic car, that is certain to turn heads everywhere you go. Ready for Summer!
