The Britons invented the roadster class, which is a small, two-seater convertible with lively driving dynamics. One of the most popular and typical British roadsters from the 60’s is the MG B. They introduced it in 1962. The MG B was the successor to the MG A and helped establish the roadster class in America.
For the standards of the day, the MG B was a modern car with unibody construction, a roomy interior, as well as decent suspension and steering. Some of the contemporary tests say the MG B was underpowered since 95 HP from 1.8-liter engine isn’t much. But since the car weighs only 2,200 pounds, it can keep up with modern traffic. For those who want more power, MG introduced the model C with a 3.0-liter six cylinder and 145 HP.
They also offered the MG B GT with a 3.5-liter V8 engine available only in coupe form. The best thing about the MG B is it is a simple car to maintain and they still produce all the relevant parts today. MG produced over 400,000 MGs, selling most of the cars in the U.S., so finding one shouldn’t be a problem.
