This is probably the best handling MGC GT in the UK and has won in its class concours events in Switzerland. With a £19,995 price being in the middle of our estimated range. The car has been modified over the years to make it a much more impressive GT car than the original MGC. Details are included in the images of work completed, to highlight some key points; high compression big valve head, lightened flywheel, Downton 6 branch exhaust system mated to a stainless steel exhaust system, electronic ignition, alloy rocker cover, uprated oil cooling system, Spax shockers, uprated torsion bars, parabolic rear springs, uprated brake discs and pads, Quaife quick rack steering. The car has been restored over it’s life, details including a respray are in the extensive paperwork images, and in Johns ownership the Sebring bumpers were added to the car to complete it’s rally-esque appearance. Wheels & Tyres The car has been fitted with 15in period correct steel racing wheels by Dunlop, and wrapped in tyres by Firestone. There are no signs of uneven wear, pictures of all wheels and tyres in the images section. Bodywork The bodywork is visually free from rust, with the car being dry stored at all times. Shut-lines across the car look even, and have been detailed in the video footage. Paint The red paint is in good visible condition, with the respray having been completed some 10 years ago. A few imperfections were noted, as you would expect with a car that has been used; a few tiny chips in the paintwork on the bonnet, some cracking of the paint on the underside leading edge of the bonnet, a small chip in the paint on the bodywork at the bottom of the boot entry. Glass and Trim Glass and rubber trim all looked in good condition. Other trim such as some of the chrome on the petrol cap and boot handle have some pitting as you would expect with the age of the car. Engine and Gearbox Cold starting the car was no issue (see video) with no problems coming from the exhaust. John had no issues setting off with the car cold, selecting reverse and then through to 3rd gear without an issue. Once warmed up on the run, John went through all the gears including use of the overdrive as detailed in the video. Suspension and Brakes The car handled the uneven and varied surfaces on our short run without any issue. There were no knocks or rattles to be heard from the car on our run. As mentioned above, both suspension and brakes have been upgraded over time to enhance the car. The Drive The car performed fine on the drive. Pulling along nicely, and the Quaife quick rack steering making light work of handling the car. Electrics and Other No issues.
