In 1962, the MG B hit the scene to replace the MG A, the car that was a huge styling break for MG at the time. Produced until 1980, the long-lived MG B saw several variants throughout its life, including the MG B GT three-door 2+2 coupé, the six-cylinder coupé MG C, and the eight-cylinder 2+2 coupé MG B GT V8.

The roadster variant was the first to roll off the assembly line with a 1.8 L I4 mated to either a 4-speed manual or a UK-exclusive 3-speed Borg-Warner 35 automatic transmission. From 1963 to 1974, all MG Bs used twin 1.5-inch SU carburetors. Power ratings for MG Bs prior to 1968 were 95 HP and a peak of 110 lb-ft of torque. It was also one of the first cars to feature controlled crumple zones meant to protect occupants in a 30 mph crash.

The popularity of the MG B meant that 514,852 examples were produced from 1962 to 1980, with many remaining on the road to this day. This makes it one of the more affordable classic sports cars on the market, enabling the average car enthusiast to enjoy the qualities of vintage British motoring with plenty of parts and aftermarket support available. The numerous body styles and engine variations also mean that MG Bs are perfect for curvy road carvers or long-distance grand tourers.

This particular example, Chassis # G-HN3-L/67254, started out life in 1966 as a British Racing Green car with a contrasting black leather interior. The BMIHT certificate shows that it was built between August 2-4 1965, and left for the USA on August 20 of the same year. It was equipped with wire wheels, a heater, a black tonneau cover, whitewall tires, an ashtray, a “packaway” hood, and a miles-per-hour speedometer.

Not much is known about the car’s history other than the fact that it underwent a full nut and bolt restoration in New York between 1995 and 1998. The restoration binder provided with the car details the painstaking, three-year process during which the car was restored to concours-correct condition and repainted a brilliant red that perfectly fits the essence of this roadster. This MG B was driven regularly following its restoration and was frequently serviced by the British car specialists at Ragtops and Roadsters in Perkasie, PA. In 2017, it was prominently featured in the book “Rule Britannia, When British Sports Cars Saved a Nation” by John Nikas, next to the other MG B body styles that were available at the time.

As it sits, this MG B Roadster is an older restoration that has held up well and presents in largely period-correct condition. Being a pre-1975 car means that it was not bogged down by US emissions equipment and can be enjoyed the way a British roadster was meant to be enjoyed. Upon purchase, the new owner will receive all miscellaneous records on file, the BMIT certificate, a matching spare, tonneau cover & bow, soft top & bows, original jack, wheel wrench, the restoration photo album, and a copy of the book “Rule Britannia, When British Sports Cars Saved a Nation” by John Nikas in which this car was featured.
