The Complete Book of Classic MG Cars & Original Mgb Restorer's Guide 2 Book Set

€74,95

The Complete Book of Classic MG Cars covers all the marque's collectible production saloons and sports cars, from the 14/28 and 14/40 sports cars to the iconic postwar convertibles like the MGA and MGB, as well as latter-day takes on the classic MG formula, such as the RV8.

First produced in Oxford, England, in 1924, MG cars proved instantly appealing, with a cheeky spirit that would win the hearts of millions around the globe, not least of all in the United States. This was due in no small part to the fact that the price was as attractive as the styling and the performance. Inexpensive and fun became quintessential MG traits. In this installment of Motorbooks' Complete Book series, author Ross Alkureishi offers a chronological model-by-model marque history. Narratives discuss design, production, and technology, while specification tables highlight key technical and performance data. Hundreds of photos illustrate the vehicles and even include detail shots of engine bays and interiors.

Originally formed as a side business, MG became one of the world's most recognized car brands. From prewar saloons to fast and affordable two-seat sports cars in the pre- and postwar periods, MG has exuded fun, thanks to models like the Midgets and Magnettes, the traditionally styled T-Types, and the vehicles that would become the marque’s most recognizable: the MGA, MGB, and MGC. MG would undergo several ownership changes throughout the years, and Alkureishi expertly shows how different ownership groups affected MG cars, good or bad. Along the way, the company competed on racetracks around the world, and Alkureishi describes the most successful of these exploits in complementary sidebars.

The Complete Book of Classic MG Cars is the essential guide to this important chapter in the history of motoring.

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.

The immensely popular MGB sports cars are described here in full detail, accompanied by carefully selected color photographs. Fully documents all four-cylinder MGB models made from 1962 to 1980, six-cylinder MGCs from 1967-69, and MGB GTV8 models 1973-76. Provides owners, enthusiasts, and potential buyers with valuable information on exactly what is 100% authentic for every model and year. Includes detailed production figures.
