MG C Roadster in Glacier white with manual gearbox and factory hardtop. Fully restored by MG enthusiast, complete engine rebuild by MG specialist, chrome wire wheels, luggage rack and Moto Lita steering wheel.
The MGB, when introduced to the world in May of 1962, was a whole new concept from MG in many ways even though it kept with the companies roots of a fun-to-drive sports car available to the masses. It was however a monocoque design, included overdrive, a sturdy and reliable engine, and a car that now featured a mostly watertight cockpit with roll up windows. Things were starting to get more comfortable, modern, but as the Austin Healey 3000 soon proved, the MG was under powered for those sporting enthusiasts craving a bit more power and usability as a true sports car. The idea of a 6-Cylinder MGB was soon adopted in 1965, and by 1967 production was under way with the all new 2912cc Straight 6 being sho-horned into the engine bay of the MGB, now an MGC. Production technically ran only 2 years, though sales went on into 1970 before all 4,544 roadsters were claimed by their new owners. The MGC was everything the MGB should have been, not only as a market competitor, but a car that really worked on the road and could give the driver both a thrill and usability across the range. Today they are a must have in any MG Collection, British Sports Car Collection, or for the enthusiast looking
MGC Roadster 1968 Manual O/D This is simply the best driving MGC we’ve ever had. Bar none! In the 10 years we’ve been in business, we’ve handled quite a good number of the MGC, and we’ve never had one anywhere near as good to drive as this one is now. We kind of get the impression these cars should have been like this from the factory and if they had they could have been a world beater. For anyone who has ever driven and MGC and been a little disappointed with the drive, this car is a total revelation. Finished in Tartan Red with Black leather Upholstery piped red interior this car is showing around 77000 miles. We don’t have enough history to confirm it’s the sum total, but the car certainly doesn’t look like it’s been around the clock either. The Service History does however go back to 1987 when the car was showing 62000 miles, so it is just possible the mileage could be genuine. Mention of that service history reminds me to mention the fact that we last saw this stunning motor car in 2011, and the service history since that time comes to over £12000. This car has had the whole suspension completely changed at enormous cost. The body work has undergone some significant work and the whole car just feels absolutely stunning to drive. And it even has lumber adjustment in the driver’s seat, a first for us in any MG from the 1960’s! If you fancy an MGC, then this simply has to be the car to have. OK, some of you might say its not original with this change to the suspension, but believe me, this stunning Motor Car is infinitely better to drive. You won’t find a better C to drive than this, and at only £29995, it’s the one to have right now.
