The MG B proved even more successful than its predecessor the MG A. In 1965 came a coupé version–the MG B 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 MG B GT was not only a good looking car, but it offered saloon car comfort levels with a sports car's performance. As a result, the GT became very popular with those who wanted something more civilized than a roadster.
