1968 MG C 'Sebring' Style Roadster For Sale

We are pleased to present this unique MGC Roadster that was first supplied to the MG main dealer in Southern California in 1968. The interesting life of this motor car really began in the early 1970s when a UK serviceman, whilst serving in California, purchased it from the main MG dealer. He, apparently, used the MG for a couple of years and then returned it to the dealer asking for it to be converted to righthand drive as he was to be posted back to the UK and wished to take the car with him. A local body shop was entrusted with the work which included Sebring-style steel wheel arches (manufactured on an English wheel) and a later MGB dashboard that accommodates the MGC odometer and revolution counters. The engine was said to have been removed, rebuilt and balanced; sadly no documented evidence of this exists, whilst an overdrive gearbox was also added. After a year had passed, the serviceman became un-contactable, the suspicion being that he had a large bill to pay so returned to the UK without paying. There the MGC sat for over 20 years until purchased by Bob Sauder of Grass Valley, California in the early 1990s. At this time, it was finished in primer and had many features such as the wire wheels, six branch manifold, triple carburettors and a Downton twin pipe exhaust system. It stayed there until Bob, now in his 70's, decided that he would never get around to finishing the project and so sold it on to the current UK owner in February 2012. It was then that the serious work of re-commissioning the MGC began and completed to the standard you see today. In fact, such is the condition of this dry-state MG, that there is no evidence of the car ever having been welded (apart from the addition of the steel wheel arches) or of it ever having been involved in an accident. Further additions include telescopic shock absorbers all around, renewed brake and clutch systems and a rebuilt, overdrive gearbox, whilst the well respected trimmers, P. J. M. Motors of Market Drayton, Shropshire, trimmed the leather interior. It is now UK registered and comes with an MoT test certificate with no advisories, valid until May 2018. Today, this unusual and unique MGC, nicknamed ˜The Monster"presents very well and drives just like an MGC should. Love it or hate it, (and we absolutely love it) you will not fail to notice it!
