FINAL BATCH FOR MGB RUBBER BUMPERS
Rubber-up, says British Motor Heritage, before it's too late (oo-er, etc)

The run, using original tooling, will be the first lot built on the original moulds since 2005, but it will also be the last.
Of course, there will be those who argue that the rubber-bumpered MGB was an aesthetic aberration, a sop to US-market safety regs, and thus good riddance to it. But there's no getting away from the fact that, if you want an original-spec car from that era, you're going to want a rubber bumper...
If you do want a set, BMH will charge £625 for the front and £625 for the rear. There's only one question: is that a fair price or is it daylight rubbery? (Riggers, you're fired - Ed)
