The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed from 1962 until 1980 by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), later the Austin-Morris division of British Leyland, as a four-cylinder, soft-top sports car. Development of the MGB started at least as early as 1958 with the prototype known by its Abingdon codename; MG EX205. In structure the car was innovative with modern design in 1962, utilizing a unitary structure, instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. The Mark III MG was introduced in October 1966 as a 1967 model and both it and its companion Austin-Healey Sprite received the 65 hp BMC A-series engine, now displacing 1275 cc. It was the same engine as the Mini Cooper S, but detuned, and it could push the boxy little roadster to 60 mph in 14.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of about 94 mph. The convertible top was finally a folding design instead of something to be dismantled and put in the trunk, and the car sold for $2,174. Weighing in at only 1620 pounds, the MG was described as “the smallest real sports car.” The top three gears were synchromesh, however first was still a crashbox gear. The car changed little in 1968 and 1969. Wind-up windows were standard, and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. A storage parcel shelf was also fitted behind the seats. 1969 also saw three windscreen wipers instead of two to sweep the required percentage of the glass (US market only) and seat backs with head restraints. Between 1966 and the 1969 face lift, only 22,415 MK-III models were produced worldwide.
