The MGB was launched at the 1962 Motor Show having a new monocoque construction and the B-series engine bored out to 1798cc. Response was immediately favourable. The cars were soon put into racing and overall proved very successful. As sales were tailing off 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 rationalisation, which favoured 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.
