What We Like

The MG B Roadster is a quintessential symbol of mid-twentieth century British motoring. This example is finished in classic Damask Red over a black interior with a black top and matching boot. According to the selling dealer, the car was re-sprayed in its original color in 2015. The dual-carbureted 1.8L four-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission make for an engaging driving experience on back roads. This MG B represents a great opportunity for those looking to experience classic top-down British motoring.

Seller Information

Vehicle History & Overview

Per the selling dealer, this MG B Roadster benefits from a 2015 respray in factory Damask Red. According to the selling dealer, the prior owner was an avid enthusiast and the head of the Pennsylvania MG B club. Modifications appear to be limited to an AM/FM/cassette stereo, K&N air filters, an aftermarket exhaust system, and 14-inch alloy wheels.

The MG B was launched in 1962 and utilized a modern unibody chassis design. This chassis incorporated one of the first uses of crumple-zones designed to offer greater passenger protection. Power was provided by a carbureted 1.8L inline-four-cylinder engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. Braking was supplied via front disc-brakes with dual-piston calipers and rear drums. Series production ended in 1980.
