By the late sixties, it was clear that MG had a great car with the MG B but many owners were requesting more power and by 1967 the MG C was conceived and muted to be the replacement for the historic Healey 3000!
However, the press and indeed customers were not impressed with early reports of a heavy front-end provoking understeer and this did irrevocable damage to the car’s desirability and after only two years in production, the project was killed off.
So today with only 4,000 coupes built, the MG C has become a sought-after rarity.
This stunning example was built for the UK market and registered in 1970.
An extensive restoration was carried out in the early 2000s by an MG specialist and she still presents superbly today.
There is a good history file with invoices, old mots etc.
This is a real wolf in sheep clothing and surprises other road users with its performance and long-legged cruising ability.
There are wire wheels fitted, electronic ignition and the higher ratio back axle meaning any journey can be undertaken without stress around 4000 rpm at 100 mph !
Supplied fully inspected, serviced with 12 months warranty.
