How to Improve MGB, MGC and MGB V8

How to Improve MGB, MGC and MGB V8

Roger Williams

ISBN: 1901295761

USA$22.02

Review:

I have owned and worked on MG's of one sort or another for more than fifteen years, with my 65 MGB being my longest lasting car (outlasted my marriage). I bought this book hoping that it may give me some ideas as to improve my old friend. Well, I was deluged with vague references as to what would work, how to do things and many bad photographs. I was impressed with the amount of upgrades that are available in the U.K., but very disappointed to the amount of material that was devoted to outlandish and totally inappropriate modifications to the classic MGB. These modifications are well out of the scope of the average owner to accomplish and probably out of the price range of most vintage racers. If you are looking for a book that will help you get the most out of your MGB get a good service manual such as the Bentley manuals, or the Guide to DIY restoration of the MGB. Both of these books more clearly demonstrate proven examples of modifications that can be carried out by the novice to intermediate skilled owner. If anyone is still interested in this book, mine will be on sale shortly. Thanks for letting me vent... Semper Fi!!


How to Power Tune the MGB 4-cylinder Engine

How to Power Tune the MGB 4-cylinder Engine

Peter Burgess

ISBN: 1903706777

UK17.99
USA$23.73

Review:

This book belongs in every MGB owner's library. Its information is accurate and reliable. Peter Burgess well deserves his reputation as the master among MGB Tuners, and his book makes it obvious as to why and how he has come to be considered to be so.


MGB: The Racing Story

MGB: The Racing Story

John Baggott

ISBN: 1861265301

Hardback

UK13.16
USA$33.10

Review:

Arguably the most popular British sports car ever built, the MGB has competed in every form of motor sport. Much has previously been written about the 'works cars' but John Baggott covers new ground, tracing the subsequent history of some of the well known after they had passed into private hands. John Baggott covers in great detail all the models' racing history including the MGB roadster, MGB GT, MGC and the MGB GT V8, and also that of the Elva Courier, Gilbern GT 1800, Ginetta G11 and TVR Grantura and the unique WSM MGB, all of which competed using MGB engines and, in some cases, running gear. All the cars described still race today and this fascinating book brings the, largely untold, story right up to date with information on their participation in the current championships.


Road Test: MGC and MGB GT V8

Road Test: MGC and MGB GT V8

R. M. Clarke

ISBN: 1855203634

Hardback Paperback

UK10.95
USA$13.57

Review:

After much speculation about BMC's new big-engined car the MGC was a disappointment. Looking very much like the current MGB, albeit with a bulge in the bonnet, sales took a while to take off. Under the skin there were many innovations, not least the six-cylinder engine and it came in both open and GT forms. In 1973 the Rover V8 engine was slotted into the BGT, the only external sign being a discreet V8 badge. Unfortunately it was a good engine in an out of date car. However, there is now a good following for this car. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, new model introductions, specification and technical data and history.
