1965-1967 MG B GT specifications Classic and Performance Car

It’s sometimes easy to forget just how much of an impact the MGB GT made on the marketplace. That fastback style roof, designed by Pininfarina, followed conventional GT styling cues, but for a fraction of the price. The raised windscreen height and side windows meant that there was a realistic amount of headroom for those in the front, although rear seat passengers didn’t get such an easy ride. Underneath the glamorous new skin, the GT was pure Roadster, and that meant tidy handling and excellent performance.
