When introduced in 1962, the MGB featured an all new unibody body shell sharing many styling cues with its Midget sibling. MGB Roadsters continue to be popular among motoring enthusiasts. Their simplicity, reliability and overall sportiness make them very enjoyable cars to own and drive. Early chrome bumper examples with door pull handles such as this car are among the most sought after.
