HORNBY: Following the closure of the Canadian Hornby importer in 2023 we have contacted Hornby numerous times to secure continued supply of Hornby products to supply our Canadian customers. Unfortunately Hornby steadfastly refuse to communicate with us. Regretfully we have concluded that Hornby has no desire to support the Canadian market. As stocks of Hornby products are exhausted we are replacing these products with products from other manufacturers.
The MGB was introduced in 1962, with a 0-60 mph time of just over 11 seconds, aided by the relatively light weight of the car.
Handling was one of the MGB's strong points.
The 3-bearing 1798 cc B-Series engine produced 95 hp at 5,400 rpm.
The engine was upgraded in October 1964 to a five-bearing crankshaft in an effort to improve reliability.
