The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top roadster from 1962 until 1980.
The MGB was regarded as one of the most popular British sports cars and if you’re looking for a weekend toy, this would be the perfect choice. During the car’s long production life (1962-1980), over half a million MGBs rolled out of Abingdon’s factory gates.
For the first time on an MG roadster, the body shell was an immensely strong monocoque, very effectively styled by MG’s Don Hayter, with assistance from Pininfarina. It was also a great success in the US and Europe, where its mechanical simplicity, good looks, low price and honest charm were seen as assets. The only change our MGB underwent is the yellow color from its original orange color, plus brighter headlights.
The car is really sweet to drive and a head turner as not many MGB cars exist in Lebanon.
