MG MGB Convertibles for sale
The convertibleMG MGB is a sports car that looks like it was designed to become a classic piece of automobile history. Created by the British Motor Corporation in 1962, the MG MGB was the successor to the MG MGA, a vehicle that redefined what sports cars could look like. Traditionally a hardback coupe, almost all variants of the MG MGB were available as convertible. While the initial run of the MG MGB ended its run in 1980, the MG RV8 sold between 1992 and 1995 is often considered a continuation of the MG MGB series, regardless of the nameplate.
The history of the MG MGB
Although the MG MGB premiered in 1962, development on the vehicle began as far back as 1958. Following the MG MGA, the new sports car made progressive strides in its structure and design. Impressive in speed, upon its release the MG MGB could achieve zero to sixty mph in slightly over eleven seconds. Meanwhile, the car set new safety standards as the first vehicle to include crumple zones, a feature designed to protect drivers and passengers in the event of a crash. Crumple zones are a method still practiced in motor vehicle design today. Naturally, as a classic sports car, the MG MGB is considered less safe by today's standards.
