The very first MGB’s were not provided with towing provisions.
After 368 cars, at chassis number GHN3L/368, the front cross member was fitted with the lashing eye familiar to us all.
It was not until November 1966 at chassis number 107465, that the MGB was considered to be suitable to tow other cars. For that purpose the rear bumper brackets were for the first time fitted with lashing brackets.
A little later in same month, at chassis number 107703, the front bumper brackets were equipped with towing brackets similar to the design of the rear brackets. At the same moment the towing eyes welded to the front cross members were deleted.
