1967-1969 MG C specifications

1967-1969 MG C specifications Classic and Performance Car

In an attempt to extend the appeal of the MGB and also plug the gap in BMC’s range with the demise of the big Healeys, the Abingdon engineers came up with the bright idea of fitting a C-series engine. The power and torque figures were adequate for this potential upmarket GT’s ambitions, but those looking for sporting handling would end up being disappointed with the understeery handling balance. Later development has tamed much of these handling indelicacies and, with proper tuning, the lumbering C-series can also deliver.
