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.
We know this MGC better than any other we have sold, and we have sold many. This car has been in the hands of at least five regular customers over fifteen years. This beautifully presented MGC Roadster has been driven to us from South Yorkshire, and the last time we bought it back from a regular customer we drove it from Strathaven, Scotland. The MG drove here faultlessly covering around 70 miles this time, previously it was driven here 200 miles without fault. The car is truly outstanding to drive, in very strong mechanical order. We first sold the car in 2001, taking a TR3 in part exchange from an Electrical Engineer who is a well-respected classic car enthusiast. Since selling the MGC back to us through part exchange after around two years, his interests have focused towards Jaguars, buying from us a MKI, XK150, E-Type Series One FHC and most recently a MKII over a ten year period. Over the two years with the MGC, he meticulously went over the car both mechanically and electrically, making sure the C was in exceptional condition and ready for shows and rallies. Brakes were re-conditioned, the engine set up perfectly, knock on Minilights fitted, a new hood fitted and the car thor
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.
