The MGB, the epitome of the British sports car, has attracted a huge following because of its blend of good looks, practicality and decent road manner. During its 18-year production life, from 1962 to 1980, it underwent a bewildering number of changes to specification and equipment. An owner or restorer of an MGB wants to know where their car came in the cycle of production and thus what it should look like and what parts should be fitted, from tail lamps to door handles. Answers to all these questions can only be found in this book, with detailed color photography of the complete range of the cars.
