The arrival of the MGC in 1967 was greeted with mixed reaction from enthusiasts and the motoring press alike. It can be described as one of the most controversial sports cars ever produced from Abingdon and during its short life the car was never short of attention, particularly from journalists. The arrival of the MGC was partly due to the flagging sales of the Austin Healey 3000 and the fact that the original design of the MG monocoque structure was capable of taking larger power units than the 1800cc engine in the MG. Upon its launch, the MGC was available in roadster form at £1,102 and in GT form at £1,249 and was considered very reasonably priced for one of the fastest production MGs produced. If, however, used as a relaxed high speed tourer, the MGC was an extremely civilised motor car to drive. This MGC was originally registered in the U.S. and repatriated to the UK in 2014 by MGC specialist Brian Hutchison. When he received the car, he set about restoring her to a very high standard and included stripping the car to a bare shell. This was found to be in excellent original condition and work began to prime the body and paint her in tartan red. The prepared shell was then fit

POA Replacement for the ageing Austin-Healey 3000, the MGC was launched in 1967 powered by a new 2,912cc, six-cylinder engine. Fitting this larger engine into the existing MGB bodyshell resulted in a number of significant changes, including the adoption of a new front cross member and torsion bar springing for the front suspension, while the bonnet was given the C’s characteristic bulge. Less agile than the lighter MGB, the ‘C’ excelled as a Grand Tourer, its high axle ratio and lazy engine - 100mph equates to just 3,750rpm - making for effortless high-speed cruising. Better appreciated now than in its heyday, the MGC lasted for just two years, production ceasing in 1969 after around 9,000 cars had been built. This is one of the very last MGC’s to be built, being registered in September 1970 as ELF 698J, little is known of the early history due the bereavement of a previous owner, however we do know that this MGC received a full nut and bolt, bare metal restoration in 2000, by 2005 the mileage was only 33000 miles, which was believed to be genuine, today the mileage is 37500 miles. The car was recommissioned on sale in 2005, and has been used sparingly since. Mot mileage reports sh
This very well restored and sorted C was imported in to the UK in the early 1990s and converted to RHD. Exceptionally well kept, with hand written log of all miles covered, work and servicing carried out. A meticulous owner.
RALLY PREPARED WITHOUT LOOKING AT ANY EXPENSES Brand MG Type C Color Blue Interior Black Year first registration 1969 Price € 26.500,- MG C RALLY PREPARED Very powerful example Rally prepared without looking at any expenses Just finished from an extensive respray Comes with an impressive history file full of invoices Following decades of remarkable success on the racetrack and sales floor with its beloved four-cylinder sports cars, MG first experimented with six-cylinder power in 1967 with the release of the MGC, which neatly bridged the gap in BMC’s product line created by the demise of the Austin-Healey 3000. Available in both Roadster and GT Coupe form, the new model looked much like the MGB, aside from a pair of pronounced hood bulges and larger 14-inch diameter wheels. To accommodate the larger engine, however, the MGC front suspension eliminated the coil springs of the MGB in favor of a torsion bar and wishbone arrangement. With 145 horsepower and plenty of torque on tap, the MGC was the most powerful car MG produced during the era, trumping even the later V8-equipped MGBs of the mid-1970s.
