1965 MGB EX234 pro­to­type

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

It’s a case of where to start with this unique pro­to­type. One fam­ily owned since be­ing sold by the fac­tory, 6400 miles from new and of course be­ing an in­ter­est­ing part of MG his­tory. De­signed in-house but built on a rolling chas­sis sent to Pin­in­fa­rina, it fea­tured styling cues found in later Fiat and Alfa cars, and de­spite be­ing smaller, boasted a big­ger in­te­rior than the MGB. As with so many ‘what-ifs’ in BL his­tory the B re­place­ment never ful­filled its role (the TR7 got the go-ahead in­stead) and was bought by MG dealer Syd Beer, form­ing part of an oc­tagon-col­lec­tion.
