The MG MGB began production in 1962 as a successor to the MGA. It featured a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine and a 4-speed manual gearbox with optional overdrive. With around 100 horsepower on hand, the lightweight two-seater was quick and fun to drive for a car of its era. Over a production run lasting until 1980, more than half a million MGBs were sold worldwide, solidifying it as the token affordable British roadster.
Restoration by University of Dayton Motorsports Club
This MGB is a 1972 model, which following some modifications by a previous owner, was neglected for a long period of time. Over the last few years, students from the University of Dayton Motorsports Club have done extensive work to revive the car, including a complete overhaul of the suspension system, brakes, and a clutch replacement. This ‘B is now being entered in autocross events, providing a safe space to exercise it in a manner consistent with the racing pedigree that adorns many an MGB.
