The roadster was the first of the MGB models to be produced. The body was a pure two seater but a small rear seat was a rare option at one point. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while 3 inches shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. The 4 speed gearbox was an uprated version of the one used in the MGA with an optional electrically activated overdrive transmission. The MGB was one of the first cars to feature controlled crumple zones designed to protect the driver and passenger in a 30 mph impact with an immovable 200 ton barrier. In 1969, three windscreen wipers instead of just two were added to sweep the required percentage of the glass, high back seats with head restraints. and side marker lamps. 1970 also saw a new front grille, recessed, in black aluminium.

It has a new convertible top, new windshield, new tires, and excellent original floors.
