MGB GT Coupé

MGB GT Coupé

The MGB proved even more successful than its predecessor the MGA. In 1965 came a coupé version–the MGB GT, which had an attractive and functional closed version of the standard body. In appearance, the front end was essentially the same, but the windshield was slightly higher to allow for a higher roof line. In the place of the roadsters small trunk lid was a much larger hinged tailgate that provided access to the space inside, making it one of the earliest examples of the hatchback car. Inside, a small rear seat was provided which could be folded flat to provide a platform for luggage, making it a useful two-seat touring car. The MGB GT was not only a good looking car, but it offered saloon car comfort levels with a sports cars performance. As a result, the gt became very popular with those who wanted something more civilized than a roadster.
