A four-wheeled legend

One of the most iconic sports cars ever to come out of the UK, the MGB truly is one of the all-time greats.

The classic British sports car was built between 1962 and 1968 by the British Motor Corporation and British Leyland.

First released as a two-door roadster only in ’62, the B was a deeply handsome and charming roadster that was very well received by both critics and the public alike.

In 1965 the MGB broadened its appeal even more when Italian design house Pininfarina penned the now classic shape of the MGB GT coupe.

The MGB was available with either a BMC B-Series 1.8lt four-cylinder donk or a Rover 3.5lt V8, although this engine was exclusively used in the MGB GT V8.

The power from these motors was sent to the B’s rear wheels via either a three-speed automatic or a four-speed manual transmission.

This particular MGB is ’70 GT coupe model and, according to the seller, the vehicle has been terrifically maintained and is in fabulous condition.

The MGB is $19,500 and anyone interested in this excellent British classic can view the full listing here.
