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 a standard fit. With the MKIII derivative of 1972 came a new facia and improved heater.

This MG B Roadster was manufactured in 1973 and was registered new in the UK on the 13th of February 1973. Exported to Ireland in 1981, the MG B had one Irish keeper before entering into current family ownership in October 1985. Fitted with the 1798cc straight-four engine and four-speed manual gearbox. The MG was original is finished in gold before being subject to a colour change to the current green, with the Roadster having black interior upholstery. Driven over to England in 1987, the MG was used for approximately a year before being laid up in the garage it is offered from today. Offered as a full restoration project or spares car, the MG B is accompanied by the Irish logbook and a large collection of invoices.
