Introduced in the May of 1962, the monocoque MG B was a welcome progression from the body-on-frame T-Series and MG A models that preceded it. The MKII model of 1967 brought an updated manual gearbox with revised ratios and synchromesh on all gears, as well as the option of a Borg Warner automatic unit. Other changes included a revised rear axle and a switch from dynamos to alternators. In 1969, Rostyle wheels replaced the previous pressed steel version for standard fit. With the MKIII derivative of 1972 came a new facia and improved heater.
This nicely presented, right-hand drive 'home market' MKIII MG B is finished in lustrous Orange with a Black hood and matching interior trim. It is equipped with the desirable overdrive gearbox and was apparently restored some years back and recently treated to a further repaint. The vendor informs us that 'ZV 3298' is now 'in very good condition with everything working as it should do'. He classifies the interior trim as 'very good' and the body and paintwork, four-cylinder engine and four-speed transmission as all being in 'excellent' order. He is offering the MG complete with tonneau cover and Haynes workshop manual.
