Built from 1962 all the way through 1980 the MG B was a two-door
sports car manufactured by BMC and Later by British Leyland. They
offered several body style variants that included a three- door
hatch and 2 plus 2 coupe and the two-seat roadster that is the most
common and also the first to be produced. The MGB saw a lot of
