MG MGB Roadster ‘1966

MG MGB Roadster ‘1966

The MG MGB Roadster is one of the most famous sports cars to come out of England. Also constructed in Australia, the Roadster variation of the MGB came with a convertible soft top instead of the hard, standard top of the other models. The Roadster itself started production in 1962 and finished in 1980. The Roadster version was actually the very first model in the MGB line and is a pure two-seater without a back seat, although a few of the models did come with a small ear seating option.

The MG MGB Roadster ‘1966 used a 1.8 L B-Series I4 engine, which although might be underpowered for other vehicles, performed just fine with the Roadster, due to the small size and stature of this British sports car. The MG MGB Roadster ‘1966 model year proved to be the last of the Mark I model. In 1976, the company debuted the Mark II, which changed a few features on the car in order to offer a more modern feel on the interior of the cabin. The MG MGB Roadster ‘1966 used a four-speed gearbox and it also came with the rather new feature of an electrically activated overdrive transmission, although it did not come standard.
