MGB front bumper

One of the MGB’s many assets is that quality replacement parts are readily available courtesy of British Motor Heritage (BMH) and other trusted suppliers. An obvious exception is the rubber bumper covers that were fitted to the model from 1974 onwards, which have not been produced since 2005 – until now.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that the batch of just 100 sets currently being made for BMH is likely to be the last ever produced on the original tooling, so those that need them are advised to place their orders without delay!

The rubber bumper covers were fitted to the later MGBs in order to satisfy the Federal regulations of the time – as no less than 80% of MGBs were exported to North America, the model became more and more tailored to that market as time went on. The reason this is likely to be the last replacement batch of bumper covers is twofold:

  • Firstly, the producer has had extreme difficulty in sourcing the correct material
  • Secondly, the related moulding machines are due to be decommissioned once the current run has been completed

Said BMH’s Managing Director, John Yea: “We are obviously pleased to have been able to commission this batch of product. However, owners of the rubber bumper cars need to understand that, while we will retain the moulding tools it is extremely unlikely they can ever be utilised again. The results of the current run must therefore be thought of as a life-time buy, and once they are gone, they are gone.”

  • Front Bumper Cover – Part No. BHM536. Suggested retail Price £625.00
  • Rear Bumper Cover – Part No. BHM537. Suggested Retail Price £625.00

The items can be ordered now from British Motor Heritage specialists worldwide, full details of which can be found at bmh-ltd.com
