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. ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE This MGC with chassis number GCN1U7234G is first registere
(from Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia) The MGC was a 2912 cc, straight-6 version of the MGB sold from 1967 and produced through to August 1969  with some sales running on into 1970. The car was given the model code ADO52. It was intended as a replacement for the Austin-Healey 3000 which would have been ADO51 but in that form, never got beyond the design proposal stage. The first engine to be considered was an Australian-designed six cylinder version of the BMC B-Series but the production versions used a 7 main bearing development of the Morris Engines designed C-Series that was also to be used for the new Austin 3-litre 4-Door saloon. In the twin SU carburettor form used in the MGC the engine produced 145 bhp (108 kW) at 5250 rpm. The body shell needed considerable revision around the engine bay and to the floor pan, but externally the only differences were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a teardrop for carburettor clearance. It had different brakes from the MGB, 15 inch wheels, a lower geared rack and pinion and special torsion bar suspension with telescopic dampers. Like the MGB, it was available as a coupé (GT) and roadster. An overdrive g

This stunning MGC was first registered on 3rd May 1968 and has spent 30 years with one owner.

The C is finished in the desirable colour of Mineral Blue with Dark Blue leather, Black soft top hood and is fitted with chrome wire wheels. VHN 204F has MOT certificates dating back to 1983 and a file of receipts totalling over £26,000. The MG was initially rebuilt in 1985 and from 1986-1990 covered over 2000 miles. From April 1990-February 1991 the owner was working overseas and the MG was placed in storage. From 1991 to 1995 another 3000 miles were covered and over the summer of 1995 was treated to further restoration work including a re-trim, full re-paint, new chrome work, hood and various other work. From September 1995 to 2012 the C covered 4600 miles and just 1000 miles have been covered since then. In total since the first restoration the car has covered 11,000 miles and proven to be a reliable, usable example in excellent mechanical order. The majority of the expenditure on VHN 204F has been with the same reputable Bradfor
