This is week is dedicated to showing off all the wonderful MG’s that we insure here at AIB Insurance!
First up 1974 MG B ROADSTER!
When you think of a classic sports car its a British convertible with 2 seats, more than likely an MG will spring to mind first!
First founded in the 1920’s, MG has a deep history. With roots going back to Morris, another British classic icon.
The MG B Roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. Manufactured for just shy of 20 years, it puts the MGB Roadster in the running for one of the greatest 2 seater sports cars to come from Britain.
When it comes to the engine powering the MGB, its heart is the 1.8 liter twin carburetor, producing 94 horsepower, it got the job done for the lightweight 1064kg curb weight. The B series engine they created turned into an excellent choice for commercial vans of the time, creating a diesel alternative featuring on the Leyland Sherpa van. The engine is so well built that it is still commonly used on narrowboats on the canals of the UK.
Thank you to our client, Mr N, for letting us show of his stunning MG B Roadster in the lovely Damask Red!
