Still as popular today as when it was introduced in 1962 the MGB has a pretty streamlined body and a sporting, if not fast, performance. The GT introduced in 1973 produced a very effective grand touring car with very practical luggage space. The MGC was supposedly introduced to replace the Austin Healey 3000 but with limited success.

The heavy six-cylinder engine was not as responsive as the lighter MGB and apart from the bonnet bulge did not look different enough. Sadly it was dropped after only two years and not replaced by the V8 until 1973. This was another car with a short production run. However, with the great availability of spares these cars have a long life ahead of them. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification and technical data, long term tests, buying second hand, history.

Models covered include: 1800, GT, Downton MGB, MGC, SMR conversion, MGB Mk II, MGC Auto., Downton MGC, Gran Tourismo MGB, University Motors Special MGC, MGB Mk III, Costello GT V8, V8.
