The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed from 1962 to 1980 by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later the Austin Morris division of British Leyland, as a four-cylinder sports car with a soft top. Variants included the three-door 2+2 coupé MGB GT
and the 2+2 coupe with eight cylinders, the MGB GT V8. Development of the MGB began as early as 1958 with the prototype known as the MG EX205 in Abingdon. The body of the car had an advanced modern design in 1962, using a self-supporting construction instead of the traditional body on a frame. This lightweight design lowered manufacturing costs while increasing the overall strength of the car. The 1.8 L B-series engine produced 95 hp (71 kW) at 5,400 rpm. In October 1964, it was converted to a five-bearing crankshaft. Starting in 1975, MGB engines were de-tuned for the U.S. market to meet emissions standards, ride height was increased by 1 inch (25 mm), distinctive rubber bumpers were added to meet bumper standards. The MGB was one of the first cars to have controlled crumple zones. A 48 km/h impact with a solid obstacle was designed to protect the driver and passenger.
