I bought this book, as I am restoring a 1966 MGB GT, and I want to ensure the car is kept as original as possible.
Although fairly expensive, it is filled with information and photo's. I would estimate that it answers about 90%
of the questions I did need answers for.

Every MGB owner should have this book for reference even if your not going to restore the car to concours condition. It provides useful guidance and information on all aspects of colour, engine mods and interior.

Having just bought a 1963 MGB Roadster I found this book to have valuable and interesting historical data in it. It covers not only classics but a wide range of MG's.

This is a really great book and nicely illustrated with superb photographs to back up the very detailed and accurate text. The tables in the back of production numbers and colour combinations are also accurate and really useful. If you are restoring a car you should have this book along with a few others for photographic references as, owing to the photographs being taken more recently - though consistent in quality, the vehicles are not all exactly as would have left the factory. We found this when restoring an early GT and referred to contemporary factory and press photographs found in other books. But this is a really minor issue.
The best MG MGB / C / V8 source I have come across so far. This book is so good it turns you into the MGB Originality Geek at car shows - it is amazing how many MGBs have been be-spoiled over the years with non-original bits - and you will notice them sticking out like sore thumbs after you have read this book!

This really is a very good reference book on the factory modifications made to the MGB over the years. If, as a restorer, you need to know exactly what the gear knob on your April 1973 GT should look like, then - no question - this is the book for you. However, prospective buyers should be aware that this is NOT a guide to restoring your MGB, insofar as there is no technical advice at all. This is a (very useful) run-through of all the tiny changes that were made year on year to the trim, mechanicals, bodywork, etc, but you will need other 'workshop manuals' if you intend getting your hands dirty and doing the restoration work yourself.

A definitive and informative reference book for anyone with an MGB or interest in it like myself. i'm using the book to research which year and specifications are to my taste before I start the search for my own MGB. I recently visited a classic MG dealer who had one of these books on hand for his own reference, so you can't ask for a better recommendation than that.

It is THE definitive guide to the MG B. Nice to see the effort put in to include the genuine V8, great for us lucky few that have one and from what my four pot buddies report, of much interest to others too. Good photographic variety with thorough and complete technical detail of all variants, dates etc.If you own or admire this car you need this book.
