When introduced in 1962, the MGB featured an all new unibody body shell sharing many styling cues with its Midget sibling. Mechanically an evolution of the MGA it replaced, the MGB was powered by a 1,798cc B-Series engine rated at 95 bhp and mated to a four-speed manual transmission with synchromesh on the top three gears and an optional overdrive. The independent front suspension used coil springs and lever shock absorbers, while the live rear axle was suspended by leaf springs and lever shocks. Comforts included greater interior and trunk space as well as roll-up windows. Virtually unchanged cosmetically, in 1965 the MGB received a more robust five-main-bearing version of the B-Series engine and was joined by the stylish MGB/GT coupe, which was a Pininfarina-designed mini-grand tourer with a rear hatch.

This cheeky 1965 MGB Roadster offered here comes to us from the climate friendly state of Arizona. Acquired out of long term storage, this early B has gone through the proper steps to ensure mechanical reliability including: Fuel tank cleaned, new fuel pump, master cylinder, clutch slave, carbs cleaned and adjusted, new fluids and fresh gas. The car also features one older repaint, new Moss Motors Interior, new convertible top, sport exhaust, banjo style steering wheel, new dash, wire wheels, nice chrome and trim. Mechanically, this B is a blast to drive, demonstrates a tight suspension, good handling characteristics, shifts well through all gears and brakes straight.

MGB Roadsters continue to be popular among motoring enthusiasts. Their simplicity, reliability and overall sportiness make them very enjoyable cars to own and drive. Early chrome bumper examples with door pull handles such as this car are among the most sought after. The example offered here is sure to turn heads wherever it is driven.
