MGB Roadsters, 1962-80

MGB Roadsters, 1962-80

R. M. Clarke

ISBN: 1869826108

Paperback

Review:

The MGB was launched at the 1962 Motor Show having a new monocoque body construction and the B-series engine bored out to 1798cc. Response was immediately favorable. The cars were soon entered in races and proved very successful. As sales were slowing in 1965 the GT was introduced and, although much heavier, proved to be a good seller. In the late sixties the American need for "safer" cars and pollution regulations gave the engineers a headache. Various mechanical changes kept the car up to date. In 1975 the American specification black bumpers were put on UK cars and BL rationalization, which favored Triumph, meant an end to the MGB. This is a book of contemporary road tests, new model introductions, technical and specification data, long-term tests, buying second hand and history.

MGB Restoration Manual

Review:

An absolutely essential reference when considering the purchase of, particularly your first, MGB. At this stage the most important section covers what points to look for when viewing an MGB, and gives a guide as to how much repairs or replacement will cost in each case - useful in negotiations with the vendor. I have used it to purchase two MGBs (and avoid others), and in both cases I ended up with exactly what I expected. Once you have purchased your car the sections on restoration, particularly the bodywork, are very detailed. Those on mechanical restoration give useful tips and dodges when working on an old car, but other books give a more detailed description on basic disassembly and assembly, and on electrics. In summary - an absolutely essential part of an MGB owners library.
