MGB ORIGINALITY AND RESTORATION
The MGB is such a popular car that there are a number of books which
provide wonderful information for the restorer. Such information can help you
to avoid setbacks suffered by restorers of other models working without
accurate information. The first listing in this section is the best originality book
we have seen anywhere. Some are full of questionable photos of restored cars.
Clausager goes back to original sources for his photographs. This section lists
books which provide a wealth of information for anyone restoring an MGB or
MGB-GT sports car.
