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 1972 Manual with Overdrive What can we say about the MGB? Possibly the most iconic Classic British Sports car of our time. More preserved and being used than just about any other Classic Car on Britain’s roads. And do we wonder why? The MGB is probably the easiest Classic car to run and maintain. Very simple to work on, with a vast supply of sensibly priced spare parts available mostly on overnight delivery. In point of fact the parts supply is better then some newer cars. So that’s the practical side of an MGB. However the best thing about the car is its style. The Classic look of a former era. Stunning good looks, comfortable seats with plenty of space inside. And then there is the whole new world an MGB open up for the owner. Wherever you go in an MGB there is always someone wanting to say Hello. Complimenting ou on your car and asking how long you've owned it. Then there are the Motor clubs offering a whole new world of fun and adventures. And this car would offer all of the above and more. This car is finished in British Racing Green one of the two most sought after colours for the Marque. Inside is finished in beautiful Black Leather and the seats have recently been refurbished. The hood is top quality mohair providing excellent weather protection along with stylish good looks. The Periods Minilite style alloy wheels have recently been refurbished and the car stands just right. Paintwork gleams. The chrome just lovely. This is a car that’s been well maintained for many years. The History file with the car is one of the most extensive on any MGB we’ve ever had with bills and invoices going back to 1991. The car looks as though it was rebuilt in around 2002 and has covered less then 20000 miles since then. The latest keeper has continued with the excellent level of maintenance and now the car is in an ideal condition to go to its new keeper. So if you fancy an MGB this one is in very good order and driving well. It will come with 12 months MOT for its new owner even though now it doesn’t need one, and of course it’s a Historic Vehicle, so no charge for the Road Fund License. Go on treat yourself, you know you’ve always wanted one, this car at only £9995 is perfect for high days and holidays and will more than likely still be better than money in the bank!

    Originally primrose yellow with rubber bumpers, the MG is now vermillion red, with chrome bumpers and spoked alloys, similar to Minilites. It also has a vgc., well-fitting, black, fabric hood, a vinyl tonneau cover and a removable roll-bar. The interior is all black, with red-piping to the seats and headrests.To match the change in appearance, there are equally exciting changes in the mechanical spec... In 2007, the engine was stripped, reconditioned, bored out to 1950cc, modified and rebuilt by Oselli Engineering, to their Stage2, fast-road specification. The car has a single 45DCOE Weber carb, Bosch 123 electronic ignition, a sports coil and an oil cooler. The brakes are up-rated and the suspension has adjustable Spax shocks at the back and a V8 anti-roll bar at the front.The car benefits from overdrive on 3rd and 4th and, being one of the ‘transitional’ cars, has the O/D switch on the windscreen wiper stalk - the best possible place for easy operation. The car has correct oil-pressure, both on start-up and when warm, is a delight to drive, with vast amounts of torque and very lively acceleration. The car has never been dyno’d, but performance is reckoned to be about 40% up on standard... so somewhere around 135 to 140 bhp. There is also an Oselli tubular inlet manifold, a S/S exhaust manifold and a tuned exhaust system, which provides a fabulous, throaty, exhaust note. The car has had 5 owners before me and comes with a very full and comprehensive history file. The body is very sound and cosmetically good, though by no means concourse... always inviting comment wherever it is parked. The under bonnet area is the only real cosmetic let-down, definitely ‘go’ rather than ‘show’. The ‘B’ was MOT’d at the end of March, with no advisories.The car currently has its roll-over-bar in place and is fitted with pressed aluminium, black & silver number plates, though the reflective ones are in the boot!, ( Lucas fog & spot lamps and AA & RAC badges are NOT included in the sale ) Body wise, pretty much straight and true and, if I remember correctly, ( without wading through the history file ), doors, sills and a wing or two have been replaced over time. As you can see in the pics, all chrome is excellent, apart from some blistering on the air intake in front of the windscreen ( I’m yet to see one that hasn’t blistered ) The seats and interior are good. There are matching headrests, but I never use them, as they spoil the line of the car. The tonneau cover is vinyl and is the non-headrest type. It has been modified to fit around the roll-over bar, but has blanking plates to cover the holes when the roll bar is removed. The boot interior is tidy, with the spare in place and covered. I also keep a cover on the fuel pump, to stop it getting knocked. Except for the spare, tyres are all matching Avon ZZ’s, with very little mileage. I have owned a number of sports cars over the last 50 years... this one has probably made me smile more than most... it is a great driver’s car!

    1971 MGB Roadster Manual Overdrive. Full nut and bolt restoration including a new Heritage shell in 2001 costing GBP 25000 and still in A1 condition today.

The car is stunning in Nightfire red with Barley Connolly leather MGR V8 leather upholstery and an as new Mohair hood. Included in the concours show winning engine bay is a fully re-built 1950cc fast road unleaded engine with the correct single 45 Weber carburettor. Also fitted is a large stainless steel large bore sports exhaust, servo assisted brakes, uprated suspension and Kenlowe fan. The Heritage shell gives you a totally rust free body with perfect panel fit and unmarked paintwork, the car also has an aluminium bonnet fitted. In the history file is an incredible photographic collection of all the work carried out during the restoration. Most recently in May 2018 GBP 830 was spent on servicing and a new starter motor. In summary this is possibly the best MGB Roadster that we have offered, the car is an absolute pleasure to drive and is a real head turner and will put a huge smile on your face. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.

    £15,995 £15,995

    1964 MGB Roadster MK I Pull Handle. This very rare and desirable Pull Handle is beautifully presented in Iris Blue with Blue Leather piped upholstery. Conceived in the late 1950s and launched in 1962, the MG B would turn out to be one of the most successful sports cars of all time. Attractively styled, cheap to run and easily maintained by the home mechanic, the ‘B’ carried on MG’s traditional role of providing affordable, sports car motoring for the ordinary enthusiast. The B was mechanically similar to the preceding MG A, though with heavier, unitary construction bodyshell. To compensate for the newcomer’s increased weight the existing B-Series engine was stretched from 1622 to 1798cc, while the MG B’s aerodynamically efficient lines made the most of the maximum available 95bhp to achieve a top speed which just bested the magic ‘ton’. This is an original UK right hand drive car that has been with its last owner for 17 years, during this time it has been little used and cherished. The car was restored some years ago and is still in beautiful condition today. The MG has a lovely clean bodyshell with straight panels, very good fitting doors and great panel alignment. Whilst on test drive to take the photographs the MG performed very well with a great engine pulling well through the rev range and displaying good oil pressure. The MG is a great drivers car that is extremely fun to drive with super handling and this one is just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands. This car still retains its original features including steering wheel. The car has an MOT until May 2019 with no advisories. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.

    €25,950(£0) €25,950(£0)

    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). The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. The body was a pure two-seater but a small rear seat was a rare option at one point. 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 (75 mm) 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 (electronically activated) overdrive transmission. Wheel diameter dropped from 15 to 14 inches (360 mm). In late 1967, sufficient changes were introduced for the factory to define a Mark II model. Changes included synchromesh on all 4 gears with revised ratios, an optional Borg-Warner au

  • 1972 MGB Roadster 15 miles since completion

    £22,995 £22,995

    This is an excellent opportunity to buy a fully rebuilt MGB Roadster that has covered only 15 miles since completion. The car is outstanding throughout and has been completely rebuilt by a restoration specialist who had intended to keep the car. The project began in 2010 with the plan for the end result being an MGB better than when it left the factory. Arguably it is indeed that with some nice upgrades to include high torque starter motor, oil cooler and an engine bay and underside that could win shows. Back in 2010 the car was purchased by its recent owner as a stalled project that was part way through a body rebuild using brand new Heritage or Steelcraft panels to include new wings, doors, boot lid, floor pans and sills. On initial purchase the bodyshell was taken to a specialist bodywork restorer and completed to an exceptionally high standard. On completion of the panel work and gap setting, the entire bodyshell was painted inside, outside and underneath. The shell was then re-delivered to its owner ready for a mechanical rebuild, re-trim and re-fit. The project continued into 2011 but then was once again stalled due to business demand and various major restoration projects, m

  • 1969 MGB Roadster Heritage Shell Rebuild

    £22,995 £22,995

    This genuine UK supplied overdrive MGB Roadster was first registered on the 5th March 1969 and was subject of a major rebuild in 1990. The MGB was treated to a brand-new Heritage shell, new wings and door skins, and was completely rebuild by a Midlands classic car specialist. Their paperwork states that the panel fit on the completed car was better than the MG Motor Company has ever achieved on their production models. The MG was also mechanically overhauled, the engine and gearbox checked and the brakes and suspension fully overhauled. XPD 388G first came to us in 2011 and has been with one owner since. Mileage since full restoration in 1990 is in the region of 15,000. Prior to marketing the MG, a programme of work costing £10,000 has been carried. After 27 years since the rebuild, it was time to strip the car down again and carry out a full re-paint on the rust-free Heritage shell. The paint finish had begun to show signs of wear and in order to maintain the high restoration standards, our Malton Coachworks facility stripped the MG down to a rolling shell. The engine and all ancillaries were removed and the shell was treated to a full outer re-spray including engine bay and boot.

  • MG B Roadster Blue '71

    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). The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. The body was a pure two-seater but a small rear seat was a rare option at one point. 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 (75 mm) 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 (electronically activated) overdrive transmission. Wheel diameter dropped from 15 to 14 inches (360 mm). In late 1967, sufficient changes were introduced for the factory to define a Mark II model. Changes included synchromesh on all 4 gears with revised ratios, an optional Borg-Warner au
