More Details

The MGB is a classic British roadster that was originally introduced in 1962. By 1967, changes were incorporated that lead to the designation of the MGB Mk II (officially the 1968 model year). This model continued in production until August 1971, and was then superseded by the MGB roadster Mk III in October 1971.

Like the Mk I and Mk II MGB, the Mk III is a two-door roadster powered by a front-mounted, rear-wheel drive 1798cc B Series engine. The Mark III benefitted from a revised interior, with centre console now utilising rocker switches and with two air vents in the middle. An armrest was added between the front seats.

In October 1972, the MGB Mk III roadster was fitted with a black plastic cross-mesh grille with a wide chrome surround (now incorporating the MG badge) and vertical centre chrome bar. The steering wheel was redesigned, and padded armrests replaced the door pull straps.

In October 1974, the model was given a visual redesign to meet US impact regulations. Large black urethane bumpers were added on front and rear with front indicators incorporated into the ‘rubber bumper’. The nose was redesigned, the ride height of the car increased, and overdrive became standard.

In August 1976, the fascia was covered in grey crackle (rather than black), the steering wheel was redesigned to include an ‘H’ pattern (replacing three spokes), the overdrive switch moved to the gear lever from the column stalk, full carpets were included, the fabric upholstery gained stripes, and suspension and steering was revised. In August 1977, door mirrors were repositioned.
