1970 MG B
The MGB is a sports car launched by MG Cars in May 1962, replacing the MGA. Introduced as a four-cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in 1965. In addition, the six-cylinder MGC was launched in 1967, and a later derivative, the MGB GT V8 fitted with the Buick-based Rover V8, replaced it from 1973 to 1976.
MGB/MGC production continued until October 1980 by the British Motor Corporation and its successors, British Motor Holdings and British Leyland Motor Corporation.
The bodyshell was reprised in modified form with a limited run of 2,000 MG RV8 roadsters, built between 1993 and 1995.
