Further info:

The home market MKII GT on offer sports Red bodywork teamed with a contrasting Black interior. Desirable extras include a Webasto sunroof and a wood-effect facia. The vendor describes the MG as 'mechanically very good' and is now offering it complete with history file. The odometer currently registers an unwarranted 65,585 miles. Introduced in May 1962, the monocoque MGB was a welcome progression from the body-on-frame T-Series and MGA models that preceded it. The more modern construction resulted in weight savings, reduced manufacturing costs and notably tauter handling. It was initially only available in Roadster form - the Pininfarina-penned hatchback GT derivative with 2+2 seating not being offered until October 1965. The MKII model of 1967 brought an updated manual gearbox with revised ratios and synchromesh on all gears, a revised rear axle, and a switch from dynamo to alternator. In 1969, Rostyle wheels replaced the previous pressed steel version for standard fit.
