GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 MG MGB for your
consideration. This European classic comes in a Black exterior over
a Black interior. Powering this little roadster is an extremely
well-maintained 1.8L 4-cylinder motor mated to a manual
transmission. This MGB comes to us from a private automotive
collection and as such has always been properly stored and
maintained. Additionally, the miles on this example are indeed
believed to be the original miles. If you're in the market for a
sporty British cruiser sure to put a smile on your face, this is
the MG for you! Don't hesitate to give us a call with any questions
or for more information.
Development of the MGB started at least as early as 1958 with the
prototype known by its Abingdon codename; MG EX205. The car was an
innovative, modern design in 1962, utilizing a unitary structure
instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both
the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB's rival, the Triumph TR series.
The MGB achieved a 0-60 mph time of just over 11 seconds. The
three-bearing 1,798 cc B-Series engine produced 95 hp at 5,400 rpm
- upgraded in October 1964 to a five-bearing crankshaft. From 1975,
US-market MGB engines were de-tuned to meet emission standards,
ride height was increased by an inch, and distinctive rubber
bumpers were fitted to meet bumper standards.
