MGB MARKET GUIDE

CLIFF CHAMBERS

INTERESTINGLY, the MGB shares space here with the model that took away its title of ‘everyman’s sports car’.

For 20 years before anyone ever knew of a Mazda MX5, the roomy, slightly rough and definitely leak-prone ‘B’ could be seen and heard anywhere there was some reasonably entertaining bitumen.

They were for decades the archetypal sports car but age and relevance are taking a toll, so are the MGB’s days as the traditionalists’ choice numbered? We doubt it. Will the ‘B’ will ever become scarce and valuable? Well, that’s a ‘no’ as well. Cheap to buy, easily maintained and lots of fun; what more could you want from a sports car?
