MGB Convertible 1972 - Photograph on Wood A6 105x148mm
The aspiration of the 70's couples before Children!
HISTORY - The MGB was a two seater convertible launched to replace the MGA. The engine size was increased to 1798cc from 1622cc giving a 0-60mph of 11 seconds and with the redesigned body using the then monocoque construction it was more comfortable with larger driver and passenger accommodation despite being shorter than the previous MGA. It was manufactured from 1968 to 1980 and was quintessential British sports car although the last five years of its life it was subject to too many design compromises in an attempt to meet the new stringent American safety regulations and the car lost the loyalty of the MG fans.
PHOTOGRAPH - I photographed this car in September 2019 at a Classic Car Show in Edenbridge
WOOD Plaque - The picture is produced on a 148 x 105 x 3mm piece of plywood drilled with one hole.
