MGB: Buying guide and review (1962-1980)

MGB: Buying guide and review (1962-1980) Classic and Performance Car
MGB front MGB rear MGB interior MGB B-Series engine
Owning a classic shouldn’t be a hassle; if you’re looking for something that’s fun to drive but a breeze to own, the MGB is the perfect solution. Stylish and practical, the MGB isn’t the most unusual classic around, but its popularity ensures a ready supply of cars, parts and support. Even better, just because you buy a B, it doesn’t mean that you have to have a car like everyone else’s – there are masses of bits available to make these cars more usable, faster or simply more individual. 
 
One of the most attractive aspects of B ownership is how cheaply the cars can be bought; buy a car with rubber bumpers instead of chrome and you can save a packet. You’ll also be snapping up a car that’s a bit more more usable; because it’s a bit newer, it was more thoroughly developed. If you’re still not sure, there’s a thriving social scene around the Abingdon icon, so it’s the perfect way of boosting your social life. So don’t think of this as a classic that’s B for Boring – it’s definitely B for Brilliant.
 
Arguably, no other classic vehicle is as well supported at both club and supplier level as the MGB. Today, more than 50 years after its introduction, running MG’s landmark sports car has never been easier. From complete bodyshells and authentic interior trim to modern engine conversions, everything is available to upgrade Abingdon’s warhorse for 21st-century motoring conditions.
 
Such modifications as suspension upgrades, typified by MGOC’s Evolution 3 front suspension and Frontline’s telescopic front suspension kit – designed in conjunction with Ken Costello – and five-link coil spring rear suspension, transform the driving experience. The venerable B-series engine is delivering ever greater performance, notably in fast-road or larger-capacity form, thanks to its inherent strength and ready response to tuning. Enhanced braking with four-pot calipers and vented discs ensures this performance can be utilised to the full.
 
Competition and high-performance road use similarly benefit from improved cooling, with alloy radiator and electric cooling fans. Electronic ignition and fuel injection, coupled with high-output alternator and modified starter motor, have proved successful innovations, while the availability of a power steering conversion has transformed the MGB’s ease of use. Moving the game on even further, the MG Rover K-series engine, mated to a five-speed gearbox, is a well-proven transplant, and there have also been successful LPG conversions of the B-series. 
 
While the number of MG specialists can seem bewildering, both the MG Car Club and the MG Owners’ Club (the latter with a huge spares operation) list their recommended suppliers and provide a huge information resource. Allied to this is the growing British Motor Heritage product portfolio – from bodyshells to OE parts and accessories – that is marketed through a national and international network of Approved Specialists.
 
Which one to buy?
 
At first there was an open-topped MGB only, then in 1965 came the hatchback GT. Both featured chrome bumpers, but in 1974 these were replaced by rubber bumpers. Of the models available it’s the chrome-bumpered roadster that’s the most sought after. 
 
Don’t overlook the other models though, as the GT offers excellent usability and looks smart too. Rubber-bumpered cars sit higher so they’re not as good to drive, but they can easily be lowered to improve the dynamics, while the rubber bumpers can be swapped for chrome. The 1.8-litre cars are torquey and come with a surprisingly pleasant soundtrack, but the V8 that arrived in 1973 is more relaxing to drive and sounds even better – but there was no roadster derivative.
 
This is why many buyers go for a roadster with a V8 conversion. There are lots about and they can make a great buy, but as with any modified MGB, check who has done the work and get a professional inspection if necessary, to make sure it’s been done safely.
 
And if you want the ultimate MGB, then there’s always Frontline’s re-engineered LE50, developed for the MGB’s 50th anniversary.

Common problems
 
• Rot and consequent bodges are common. New bodyshells are available but don’t under-estimate the cost of reshelling a B. These bodyshells are a mixture of the different panels used throughout 18 years of MGB production, so they’ll always vary in detail from whatever you're rebuilding.
 
• The car's complex sill structure provides a lot of stiffness for the shell, both in coupe and roadster form, but difficult repairs mean that bodges are all too common. For the best results the front and rear wings need to be cut off below the trim strip. The alternative is to unbolt the front wings, rather than cut the lower portion, but on a roadster you have to take off the windscreen surround to carry out a proper restoration.
 
• Check for rust at the box section towards the rear of the inner front wheel arches. There are a number of other rust hot spots, including the battery tray and rear spring hangers. Check the floorpan for holes – getting it up on a ramp helps with this – while you should also quiz the owner on how often they have cleaned out the top of the corrugated fuel tank. If this hasn’t been done regularly, it will likely be rusty.
 
• The GT’s tailgate is double skinned, meaning that it will often be hiding corrosion. Most cars will have had replacement doors at some point, as they are prone to rusting out. 
 
• Apart from the V8s, all MGBs had a tough 1798cc B-series engine, post-October 1964 units getting five main bearings. Parts interchangeability is good and 130,000 miles between rebuilds is possible. Expect a tappety tickover and 15-25psi oil pressure, rising to 50-65psi at 3000rpm. Anything less means a worn crankshaft or oil pump.
 
• High oil consumption points to blocked crankcase breather pipes or worn valve guides and stem seals, the latter given away by exhaust smoke when accelerating after the over-run. Oil leaks are common, from the front and rear crankshaft seals; replacing the latter means removing the engine first. Also look at the tappet chest side covers behind the exhaust manifold.
 
• Misfiring suggests the points need adjustment, or the heater valve above the distributor is leaking. A new valve fixes things, but the misfiring could be a cracked cylinder head, allowing coolant to leak out.
 
• Because the V8 is unstressed it lasts forever with 3000-mile oil changes, to prevent premature camshaft wear. Anti-freeze levels must also be maintained, or this all-alloy powerplant corrodes internally, leading to blocked up coolant passages.
 
• Automatics MGBs are rare; most common is the original three- or later four-synchromesh manual transmission. There are no specific issues with the ‘boxes, but they generally need to be rebuilt at the same time as the engine.
 
• The carbon-fibre release bearing in the clutch is a weak spot; wear is given away by a vibration through the pedal and a screeching noise.
 
• Most chrome-bumpered Bs and all rubber-bumpered editions have an overdrive which is usually reliable. Problems are usually down to a low oil level, dirty oil or wiring problems. Converting to overdrive isn’t cheap.
 
• Kingpins will often be worn out due to a lack of maintenance. With the front of the car jacked up, and the brakes applied, any lateral movement at the top and bottom of the wheel indicates that they need a rebuild. Apply grease every 3000 miles to prevent this from happening.
 
• If the front wishbone bushes need replacing, which is entirely likely due to age related wear, fitting the improved V8 items is highly recommended.
 
• If the car feels loose at the rear when driving, it’s likely that the axle-locating U-bolts and bushes need replacement or adjustment. Thankfully it's cheap to fix.
 
• The original lever arm dampers provide the best ride quality, and while it’s possible to rebuild them when they start to leak, but most swap to telescopic dampers resulting in a harsher ride. 
 
• Brakes were given servo assistance in 1973, so if you’re testing one of these models and the brakes feel ineffective it’s likely that the seals have failed. Replacement units can be bought off the shelf.
 
• Until 1974, two six-volt batteries were fitted – later cars have a single 12-volt unit. Both systems are reliable, but poor connections between the earthing strap and body are common.
 
• Interior parts generally wear well, although seat upholstery can become thin and baggy. Later rubber bumper cars got an improved dashboard, but generally all items are available to completely retrim and replace the interior if it's completely shot.

Model history
 
1962: MGB debuts at the British Motor Show in Tourer (roadster) form only, at £949.
1964: A five-bearing engine replaces the previous three-bearing unit.
1965: The GT arrives, mechanically identical to the Tourer.
1967: The MkII MGB arrives, with an all-synchro gearbox, negative earth electrics and an alternator. There’s also an automatic gearbox option.
1973: The MGB GT V8 debuts, using the classic Buick-derived Rover V8. There’s no roadster; the model is obsolete by August 1976.
1974: Rubber bumpers replace chrome. The new car is more usable, but the raised ride height doesn’t help the handling.
1980: The last MGB  is built on 22 October, the last 1000 cars being special edition LE models.
1988: British Motor Heritage announces the availability of brand new MGB bodyshells.
1992: The B is revived as the V8-powered RV8, 2000 of which are made over three years.

Summary and prices
 
With thousands of MGBs still on the roads, the car for you is out there. Early cars aren’t that easy to live with on a daily basis, but running costs are low, parts are easily available and specialists are easy to come by. Not only that, but you’ll also have access to one of the best car clubs going. 
 
The very early ‘pull handle’ MGBs are the most valuable, with a good example costing around £15,000 today. Usable cars start from around £6000-£10,000, while projects can be picked up from £2000. The rest of the range, from Mk2, Mk3 and rubber bumper models are all value on condition above all. Even the best of these can be had for less than £10,000, apart from perhaps the concours or fully-rebuilt examples, with usable and solid examples costing less than £5000. The Coupe GT models are cheaper still, and apart from the earliest models, these are generally available for less than £7000. 
 
Even though the B has been out of production for over three decades, the network of specialists that look after them has continued to grow. So where the B previously had a few downsides, such as handling that wasn’t too sharp, just about everything has been solved now thanks to a raft of affordable upgrades that have been developed.

    £15,995 £15,995

    About this MG MGB Roadster The MGB is a two door sports car manufactured and marketed by the British Motor Corporation, later British Leyland, from 1962 until 1980. The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. The body was a pure two seater, a small rear seat was a rare option. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while being 3 inches shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. The four speed gearbox was an uprated version of the one used in the MGA with an optional overdrive transmission which this example includes. In 1970 a split rear bumper was introduce with the number plate in between, in 1971-1974 returned to the earlier single piece full length style chrome bumper. Further changes in 1972 were made to the interior with a new fascia. This car has been subject to a sympathetic restoration program with the bodywork having been completely stripped down to a bare metal shell on a revolving jig with photographs to back this up. The following work has been carried out: New inner and outer near side and

  • 1968 MGB GT

    POA POA

    Philip Raby Porsche Porsche Sales and Service Photos to follow. This 1968 MGB GT is a lovely car, and a rare one too, as it has automatic transmission. It is finished in its original colour of Sandy Beige, with a wonderful red interior. The MG comes with a detailed history, going right back to the original sales invoice of 1968, when it was bought by a Mr Cockerill. The invoice even includes £3/10 for 12 gallons of petrol! The same Mr Cockerill still owned the car right up to 1996. It travelled to Greece around 2007 and returned to the UK in 2016 when it went back to its original 1968 registration plate. There are MoT certificates going right back to the first one in 1971, so we are reasonably confident that the stated mileage of 77,400 is genuine. The history file shows that the bodywork has had attention in the past, as you’d expect, and is rust-free and looking really good. Brand new wire wheels (as per the original specification) have just been fitted, along with new Dunlop tyres. The engine has been rebuilt and modified for use with today’s unleaded petrol, and fitted with an electric Kenlowe fan. The interior is stunning. New seat foams and covers have been fitted, along with

    The MGB is a sports car launched by MG Cars in May 1962 to replace the MGA and manufactured until 22 October 1980—originally by the British Motor Corporation and later by its successors. MGB production continued throughout restructuring of the British motor industry, and the parent company’s transition from BMC to British Motor Holdings (in 1966) and to British Leyland Motor Corporation (in 1968).

  • MGB Roadster

    POA POA

    POA Like Elvis or the Beatles, the MGB’s popularity seems to be eternal. And with good reason: by combining handsome roadster and GT bodywork with rugged BMC underpinnings, the ‘B is still more than capable of offering easy, trouble-free classic motoring today. In the decades following its 1962 launch, increasingly sophisticated competition made the ‘B look a little old hat. However, that is in its favour; with simple mechanicals, and unrivalled parts availability, there’s no reason why you can’t drive one all year round. Many owners already do. An extremely well restored and well kept 1966 MGB roadster, formerly UK registered, completely restored using a Heritage body shell, subsequently kept in a heated garage, and only used on dry days, although the owner tells it did once get wet on a visit to Jersey. Fully restored utilising a new Heritage shell Restored black leather seats with red piping, and contrasting red carpets. In extremely good order, recently replaced heavy duty starter motor, a new battery, prop shaft seals, plus regular service history through local specialist garage.

    £4,990 £4,990

    This is a really nice 1978 MGB Roadster which has been enjoyed and maintained by its last owner for ten years. Subject to an earlier restoration it remains in excellent condition throughout. The car is structurally sound and the bodywork and interior present very well. It drives really well, no doubt helped by the electronic distributor which has been fitted, and the overdrive gearbox functions exactly as it should. The hood has recently been replaced and is in very good condition.There is a small history file with numerous invoices and MOTs from 2007. There have only been three owners from new and the car is HPI clear. The MOT runs until March 2018 and the odometer shows 31000 miles.
