1968 MGC Convertible For Sale

MGC Convertible 1968

Owned by me for the last 10 years, bought from an elderly couple at 61000 miles who had owned her for 30 years. They had a full body and chassis restoration carried out by an MG specialist [Brown and Gammon] in the mid 90s. What attracted me most was how genuine clean and unmolested she was with an absolutely beautiful interior and dashboard.

Since purchase we have added another 38000 miles mostly a mix of long continental and UK tours and she has never missed a beat!!

Detailed comprehensive history file with old MOTs invoices and schedule of works carried out and photographic record of the bare metal repaint.

Serviced Annually irrespective of mileage. Front king- pins greased 2/3 times a year.

Has been garaged all her life. Since my purchase, been kept in a modern secure underfloor heated garage.

Never taken out in the rain or during the winter months, apart from an occasional lovely dry and bright winters day to stretch her legs.

In excess of £21000.00 spent on improvements and replacement parts during my ownership.

Work and improvements carried out since purchase:

Full professional Bare Metal respray in original colour [everything possible removed from body].

Engine fully rebuilt by MG specialist [A J Barnard & Son] and upgraded to enhance torque and smoothness to include new reprofiled camshaft, gas flowed and unleaded cylinder head, 6 branch exhaust manifold, re faced and lightened flywheel with new clutch assy, hi torque starter motor, alternator, electronic ignition with new coil and lead set, carbs stripped and rebuilt with new spindles, needles and K&N air filters and rebuilt distributor. Then the complete bottom end including clutch and flywheel was electronically balanced. Con rods and pistons balanced [weight].

Gearbox overdrive and back axle rebuilt by Hardy Engineering [highly regarded experts].

New Hydraulic power steering including new 'Quick’ rack [kit supplied by MGOC].

Full suspension overhaul to include re bushed front king pins, 4 adjustable Spax S/Absorbers, 2 new rear leaf springs with new shackles and bushes, and all suspension and steering components shot blasted and re-sprayed.

Full brake overhaul to include new front discs and pads [and wheel bearings], new rear wheel cylinders shoes and drums, new flexi hoses and brake pipes with new servo and rebuilt /resleeved master cylinder.

New contactless electric fuel pump with new fuel lines and new inline fuel filter.

New Bespoke Hi Capacity Aluminium radiator, with 2 electric fans, with override switch and warning light on centre console, all water hoses and clips replaced. Re-cored hi capacity heater matrix [heater really good].

New 5.5 J painted wire wheels [original spec but wider] with 185/65/15 tyres.

Refoamed seat bases and the leather trim is treated and fed annually.

Every Autumn light pressure wash to underside of car, then when dry light waxoil over all fuel/brake pipes and complete underside.

Single 12v battery conversion, with secret cut out/isolation switch

Rear no plate very neatly recessed into bodywork.

All body cavities/chassis rails/sills fully re wax injected. [2011]

More powerful halogen head lights.

12v socket in centre console for Sat Nav/phone charger etc.

Extremely smooth quiet and torquey engine, but can really lift her skirt when pressed.

The paintwork is still immaculate, a testament to the quality of the body restoration work and the repaint which was carried out 8 years ago.

Chrome and trim all excellent with the interior still just as lovely, with real Patina.

To fully appreciate my car’s condition, you need to see her and go down the open road in her. I thought we would keep her for ever, but there is a very genuine reason for sale. Please phone to discuss further.
