Rooted in Project Number ADO23, the new MGB debuted at the October 1962 London Motor Show and succeeded the MGA, Abingdons first modern sports car. Featuring monocoque architecture and impeccably clean body styling, the MGB included roll-up windows and a useful trunk, with power from the companys tried-and-true OHV inline 4-cylinder engine routed through a 4-speed manual gearbox. The MGB remained in production for the next 18 years to become the most successful of all British sports cars ever sold.
This highly sought-after early chrome bumper 1966 MGB Roadster has undergone fewer than 800 miles of use since completion of its full restoration. Colors are excellent, comprising show-quality Black paint over Red genuine leather upholstery with contrasting Black piping. Powering this MGB is a proper 1.8L inline 4-cylinder engine delivering 93 HP through twin carburetors to a 4-speed manual gearbox. Riding on a set of knock-off wire-spoke wheels, this British sporting icon benefits from the former ownership and care of Robert Smokey Hyde, the renowned broadcaster and classic-car collector from Louisiana.
