--Red with Black leatherette interior and Black Convertible Top. 47,000 miles. 2,912cc incline 6 cylinder, 4-speed manual transmission with Overdrive. 1,000 miles on rebuilt engine. The MG C was a 2912 cc, straight 6-cylinder version of the MGB sold from 1967 and produced until August 1969. In the twin SU carbureted form used in the MGC the engine produced 145 bhp 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 carb clearance. It had different brakes from the MGB, 15 inch wheels, a lower geared rack and pinion and special torsion bar suspension and telescopic dampers. Like the MGB, it was available as a coupé (GT) and roadster. An overdrive gearbox or three-speed automatic gearbox were available as options. The car was capable of 120 mph and a 0–60 mph time of 10.0 seconds. The MGC was cancelled in 1969 after less than two years of production, today the car is considered very collectible. This MGC Roadster having been in the same owner ship for over 25 years was partially restored around 2001. The work incl
Registered new in Jersey in July 1968, this is one of only a handful of examples of this rare car registered in the Channel Islands, where it remained until 2014. Supplied by the main agents at the time, Cleveland Garages of St Hilier, the salesman still recalls demonstrating the car at the customers house and taking the order in the summer of 1968.The first owner, a Mr Denton, kept the motor car and following his death the car accordingly passed to his son. Mr . Denton Jnr, did eventually sell the car to a clearly discerning knowledgeable gentleman, in whose custody the car was maintained and cherished until he decided to sell it in late 2014.To support this provenance, the detailed history file contains the original Buff Logbook and new log book showing this extremely limited ownership. Furthermore, the car has only covered 38000 miles from new which is supported by the history file and the original Passport to Service Book.In 1988/89, when the car was some 20 Years old, the original owner, Mr Denton senior, decided to have the 'C' renovated. He entrusted this work to the marquee specialist's Naylor Brothers who then, over a 8 month period, fastidiously brought the 'C' up to what was described in detailed correspondence as 'concourse' condition.What is clear from the correspondence is that what started as a quote for £4500 worth of work ended up with a total invoice of just shy of £14000, and that was in 1989! At today's prices that would be nearly treble that.
Finished in Tartan Red with contrasting black leather interior and red piping. Complete with Heritage Certificate showing authenticity. A truly beautiful low mileage example which drives very well, to be sold with a new MOT.
Fantastic example of the MGC 3.0, a rare car with a lovely history and a genuine 38.000 miles with only 3 owners.
