1968 MG C Roadster For Sale by Auction

H&H Classics Limited - Imperial War Museum, Duxford Auction Viewing Day: Tuesday 18th June 2019 Auction Day: Wednesday 19th June 2019 @ 13:00. Estimate: £20,000 - £24,000 Registration No:PAC769F Chassis No:GCN1581 - UK RHD home market - Heritage certificate - Matching engine and chassis numbers - Mohair hood, tonneau - Photographic evidence of restoration - Repainted with black leather interior - Overdrive as fitted when new - Carrying its original Warwickshire registration number Intended as a flagship sportscar to replace the Austin-Healey 3000, the MGC was introduced in autumn 1967. Based around the same two-door monocoque bodyshell as the humble MGB (albeit with a substantially altered engine bay and floorpan), the newcomer was powered by a 2912cc OHV straight-six engine allied to either four-speed manual plus overdrive or three-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with new torsion-bar independent front suspension, telescopic shock absorbers and lower geared rack and pinion steering, it was visually distinguished by a 'power bulge' bonnet and taller 15-inch wheels. While, early road tests criticised the car's 'nose heavy' handling later reports were far kinder (which suggests that Abingdon's engineers quickly overcame the larger powerplant's extra mass). With some 145bhp and 170lbft of torque on tap, the model was reputedly capable of 120mph. Too readily confused with the four-cylinder MGB, it was dropped in 1969 after just 4544 Roadsters and 4458 GTs had allegedly been made. Though, some fifty years on , the MGC's lack of period sales success has only made it more collectible.
