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
