MGB hire

The MGB is an iconic British sports car, perhaps the most popular sports car of it’s generation. It was designed by Don Hayter, MG’s chief designer, and built in Abingdon near Oxford from 1962 until 1980 when the factory closed. With over 500,000 sold it was Britain’s best selling sports car. The MGB sold internationally, with the majority being exported to North America.

Our MGB roadster, produced in 1967, is the more desirable early model. Finished in British racing green it has a tan leather interior, black hood, chrome wire wheels and chrome bumpers.  Inside, the 2 seater ‘B’ is quite roomy by sports car standards. In addition to the boot, it has a space behind the seats and a boot rack for extra luggage storage.

The 1800cc B series engine coupled with the 4 speed manual plus overdrive gearbox gives excellent road performance. Overdrive on third and fourth gear was an optional extra fitted to the minority of cars, making it a very desirable feature.

All this makes the MGB perfect for country roads in the Cotswolds. Imagine cruising in overdrive through rolling hills and picture postcard villages with the top down and the wind in your hair. It’s a classic car experience that’s hard to beat.
