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.

    MGB Roadster 1966 Manual O/D The Classic Car world would be a far lesser place without BMC’s ubiquitous Sportscar. They’ve been the main stay of British Motoring enjoyment for over 50 years now, and we would be totally lost without them. This car, finished in traditional Tartan Red with a black leather interior is an older restoration but has done very little mileage since it was refurbished. The paintwork positively gleams and the chrome work sparkles. Seat are in delightful condition and the engine runs like a Swiss watch. It really is a delight to drive. This car is also fitted with the original steel wheels with chrome hub caps, and really stand out from the crowd in having these, and they’re so much easier than wire wheels to keep clean too. It alos comes complete with a full tonneau cover and a very recent soft top too. So its all good to go. If you fancy an MGB why not take a look at this, it really is a great car. So easy to drive and like all MGB’s so easy to maintain. It also comes with a comprehensive history file which though not going back to day one, does detail the work done to the car when it was off the road being rebuilt and it also confirms the car has done something under 10,000 miles since that rebuild. This car would look great on your drive and at only £9995 must be tremendous value for someone. Go on, why not treat yourself?

     The MGB Roadster is the clic open top British sports car and this example is in very good condition. It's an early restoion, which was carried out before the previous owner had the car. He had had the car since around 2000. He bought the car from his wife's family member. We bought this car on a bit of an impulse. As luck has it, we have several other clic vehicles and we just don't really have the space for this one. At the time we knew it was a bit of an impulse buy. When we got the car, we handed it to our mechanic as it had been sitting around for a while. He has been through the car, serviced it, converted it to electronic ignition to make it more reliable. He also stripped the cabs, etc at the same time he put a new MOT on the car, which it ped with flying colours. The only advisory was, that due to lack of use, all four tyres had perished. We have replaced all of them. He also commented how solid the car was. We was going to re-wax oil the underneath of the car, because there are some light rust areas that just need wire brushing, but we  decided not to, as we didn't want it to look like we to cover something up. The previous owner had had fitted many new items, suspension, brakes and brake callipers, alternator, water pump, fuel pump etc, etc. The engine has been changed to an unleaded engine.The mileage is showing 23000 and we are uming this is on this engine. The interior is in very good condition. The hood is in excellent condition, obviously a replacement, but very good quality. It has a zip out rear window. It also has a full tonneau cover which looks new and a half tonneau cover with all the appropriate fixtures and fittings. It has the original toolkit and jack.Mechanically this car is very good, drives really well. Overdrive works in third and fourth gear. The car has done approx. 50 miles in 2 years. The car just needs to be used and enjoyed, which we just unfortunately don't have the time to do. There is some early stages of rust, but you have to really look for it and there is a scch on the nearside rear wing, which you can see in the picture. It's an appreciating clic, in a lovely Damascus red, with chrome wheels. We have some spares from the previous owner, one being a boot lid in case you don't like the boot rack, we do, but it is down to personal choice, and a spare set of wheels and tyres. Any inspection welcome. The car is currently on SORN. It's a real shame to see this one go, as we really to keep it.

    This superb value, very smartly presented MGB Roadster was first registered on the 1st February 1971. We recently sold the MG to a local business owner who has enjoyed the car for a short period of time before seeing a Rolls Royce come into stock with us. Plans of summer touring in an MGB soon changed and a part exchange deal was agreed, the third purchase from us within the past year or so. Prior to this, the MG was owned by another regular customer of ours, also in Pickering. From 2009, the MG spent seven years with a classic car collector with a wide selection of cars from various era's. The MGB has been driven over to us, it is excellent on the road and presents very well with clean upholstery, a very good hood and an immaculate, detailed engine bay. The MG also boasts overdrive, a wood dash cover and desirable wire wheels.

  • 1972 MG B GT Costello V8 MK1 3,500cc

    £22,950 £22,950

    Very rare MK1 Costello V8 Genesis for the MG B V8, shoehorning the Rover V8 into the MGB GT was the brain child of Ken Costello, an idea so good and a product so well executed that it was copied by MG themselves. Of the 225 Costello V8s 190 of them were GT bodied. A decision was taken in the early 2000s that the best way to make repairs to the body was to replace it entirely, a replacement shell was sourced and the major mechanical parts were transferred to it. Unfortunately what remained of the original shell was destroyed by fire in 2003. There is a signed certificate of authenticity from Ken Costello in the accompanying history file. 140mph speedometer Rear boot spoiler Competition clutch with additional servo New bucket seats Correct MK1 Costello bonnet bulge Boot spoiler Minilite wheels Rally spotlights
