The second MG to feature a full-envelope body, the MGB was produced until 1980. Slightly smaller than the previous MGA, it featured unibody construction rather than the separate body-frame of the MGA. It also featured roll-up windows and vent wings. In 1988 a British company began producing replica bodies for the MGB, to replace deteriorated body shells. They are all-metal, using some of the original tooling.
