Dustin -
        The best I've found for the changes is Anders Ditlev Clausager's
'Original MGB'.  It covers the MGB, MGC, the GT versions, as well as the
MGB GT V8.  Details, colors, etc by year and production numbers.

The Haynes Workshop Manual is fair, but Robert Bentley's 'Complete
Official MGB" is far and away the better of the two.
