MG launched the MGB in 1962 as a rival to sports cars such as the Triumph TR series. It was released initially as a two-seat convertible (although an occasional rear seat could also be specified), before the two-plus-two MGB GT coupe came along in 1965. All were powered by the 1.8-litre BMC B-series engine, which produced around 95bhp. Drive as sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox, although an optional overdrive was also offered. Cosmetic and trim tweaks continued throughout the car’s life but mechanically it remained largely the same. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of MG repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our repair manual for the MGB and MGB GT is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
