1969 MGC GT Manual Overdrive. Tartan Red with Black Leather Upholstery. Full nut and bolt restoration with a huge photographic portfolio. Absolutely no expense has been spared and this beautiful MG wants for nothing. UK right hand drive home market car. 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 floorplan), 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. Photographic evidence of a glass out body restoration. Recent gearbox and overdrive rebuild at a cost of £3k by MG Motorsport. Electronic ignition. Overdrive. Mot July 2020. Recent expenditure covering brakes, carbs and shock absorbers. Differential rebuilt. Recent wheels and tyres costing £2000 from MGOC. Full leather interior. Comprehensive history file. H4 Halogen headlamps. This car really is a stunner and drives just as well as it looks, the paint and panel finish is superb and the underside is just as good. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Free U.K. mainland delivery.
