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.

    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

    HST 50N is a car we known for over ten years. This late chrome bumper car was subject of a full Heritage Shell rebuild during the late 1990's and was finished to an exceptionally high standard. Almost twenty years on since rebuild the MG still drives and presents in outstanding condition and paperwork suggests the car has covered 14000 miles since total restoration. Prior to 2007 the MGB was owned by a East Yorkshire based enthusiast and restorer who had taken the car to France during summer months, proving the car ideal for long distance touring. We bought the car in 2007 and it quickly sold unseen to an Aberdeen based customer. The vehicle sold over the telephone, and was later collected and drive faultlessly from North Yorkshire to Aberdeen. During three years of ownership the B was in regular summer use and successfully completed the Hero Scottish Malts Reliability trial. In 2010 HST 50N came back to us in part exchange, making room for a Lotus Elan and the car once again sold fairly quickly, this time heading to West Yorkshire where it has spent the past six years, never missing a beat and proving perfectly reliable.

The car had very little use between 2000 and 2007 and since selling the car nine years the MG has covered in the region of 4000 miles.

  • 1973 MG B Roadster

    POA POA

    Introduced in May 1962, the MGB was a relatively modern design and utilised a monocoque structure instead of the traditional 'body-on-frame' construction used on both the MGA, that it replaced, and the earlier MGT types. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. The MGB's performance was considered brisk at the time of its introduction, with a 0-60mph time of just over 11 seconds aided by the relatively lightweight of the car. Handling was certainly one of the MGB's strong points. This 1973 registered MGB is smartly presented in bronze yellow whilst displaying good panel gaps and is complimented by the excellent chrome work. The tan leather seats invite you into the driving environment and a smart hood, recently having been fitted, keeps the inclement weather at bay when required. Our road test demonstrated how robust and enjoyable these sports cars are to drive. The 1798cc engine pulled well and the gearbox was smooth in operation; the overdrive unit also functioning as it should. The exhaust note is described by the vendor as lovely an

  • 1981 MG B Roadster Competition

    POA POA

    The MGB was launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA and manufactured until 22 October 1980. The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced and was a pure two-seater. The suspension in standard cars was 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. They looked good and provided sparkling performance. Their popularity led to a huge market in upgrades which went hand-in-hand with the rise in club sport, national and international competition. This is exactly what is on offer here today; it represents a de-bumpered 1981 model with the larger 1950cc engine fed through DCOE48 Weber carburettors. It benefits from the required motor-sport safety requirements such as driver seatbelts, seats and fire extinguishers, all still in-date (the passenger seat can be removed for racing). The body is in good order with light-weight fibreglass wings and bonnet. A (removable) factory hardtop is fitted for added streamlining and the overall condition is reported as good. There is also a sizable history file detailing its preparation and e
