Description

The much-loved MGB Roadster decorated in the favourite British Racing Green. Complemented with a black interior and tonneau cover, it is registered NTE 453K from 1971/72. The British Motor Corporation (BMC) introduced the MGB two-seater, soft top sports car in 1963 and it went on in production under British Leyland right up until 1980.

First models rolled off the production line in 1962 by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later the Austin-Morris division of British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top sports car. It was announced and its details first published on 19 September 1962. Variants include the MGB GT three-door 2+2 coupé (1965–1980), the six-cylinder sports car and coupé MGC (1967–69), and the eight-cylinder 2+2 coupé, the MGB GT V8 (1973–76).
Development of the MGB started at least as early as 1958 with the prototype known by its Abingdon codename; MG EX205. In structure the car was a progressive, modern design in 1962, using a unitary structure, instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB’s rival, the Triumph TR series. However, components such as brakes and suspension were developments of the earlier 1955 MGA, with the B-Series engine having its origins in 1947. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength.
The MGB was discontinued in 1980, after 18 years of production.
This is a 1:148 N scale model in British Racing Green, so very small, difficult to capture the minute detail. It comes on a plinth, with a clear case lid and Oxford Automobile wrap.
