A car designed to appeal to the hearts and wallets of drivers the world over the B was also MG’s most performance-oriented model at the time.
Launched at the 1962 London Motor Show, the most desirable and collectable of its series Mk1 MG B features a dependable 1.8 litre B-series engine mated to a four-speed manual gearbox that loves to weave through the city weekend roads with creature comforts like wind-up windows, generously cushioned bucket-seats, a neat folding convertible top and of course, overdrive.
Available here we have one of the few Australian assembled 1966 Mk1 MG B’s in its original Tartan Red over Black upholstery with Red piping. Restored from the ground up this car is arguably one of the finest in the country and is perfectly prepared for its next custodian.
