4th Annual Salt Lake City Classic Car Auction
B MK II
1969 MG B MK II Roadster
- Low mile, original car
- Beautiful Primrose Yellow
- Original Black Interior Upholstery and Carpet
MG, developed and manufactured originally by the British
Motor Company and later by the Austin-Morris division of British Leyland, has
provided distinctive British motoring pleasure since the 1920s. The MGB replaced the MGA in 1963 and was in
production until 1980. The 1969 MGB
Roadster remains a favorite of British sports car collectors still today. The MGB, among many of its
innovations, was one of the first cars to feature controlled crumple zones designed to protect the driver and passenger. The car, instead of the traditional
body-on-frame construction, was built utilizing a monocoque structure. The 1969 model was outfitted with the five-bearing,
1,798 cc powerplant rated at 95 horsepower with peak power coming at 5400 rpms. Fuel is fed by twin 1.5-inch SU carburetors. The four-speed gearbox was a full synchromesh
unit that proved durable when mated with the standard MGB B-Series engine. The car presented at auction
is a fine original example. Under current
ownership for 7+ years by an esteemed collector, this car shows approx. 30K
miles which are believed, but not verified, to be original.
The paint is original to the car as is the interior. Both show very well. A new top was installed 7 years ago and the
car looks great whether the top is up or down!
On the road, the car runs
very well and shifts smoothly through the gears. The mechanics have been well maintained and
the car is a pleasure to drive.
motoring at its finest!
