A rare opportunity to acquire a nicely restored MGC Roadster finished in British Racing Green. Fitted with BMC's renowned 3 ltr, six cyclinder engine, the car was originally sold to the US market and on return to the UK, has benefited from RHD conversion, replacement of lower body panels as necessary and a quality re spay. The original leather seats have been retained, but the dash, upholstery, instruments and carpets have all been recently refreshed with quality items. On test this car drives with the smoothness and grace expected form these torquey power units, delivering power any time it is needed without a fuss! The gearbox and Overdrive have been reconditioned and the resulting package is an excellent car to drive. The car is presented for sale on behalf of the owner. Viewing by appointment on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays*. (*Open until 1pm on Saturdays).

Bodywork

In strong condition all round having had extensive restoration work to sills and lower wings etc.

Mechanical

Well maintained throughout. Recent gearbox and Overdrive overhaul. Good and clean under the bonnet / underside.

Exterior

Very smart, bright paint and chrome work. Bright, clean new wire wheels fitted on restoration in 2019.

Interior

Mostly renewed on restoration and a very tidy, original cabin for driver and passenger.

 

Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.

  • The MGC filler neck is prone to change shape over time and lead to potential coolant loss. We redesigned it and now manufacture a replacement that solves the problem and looks magnificent in your engine bay!


  • When you own a classic car knowing where to get the best spare parts is crucial. We have a dedicated Parts Manager who will track down the best quality and hardest to find part for your car, we like to call this Automotive Archaeology, if it’s available ... we will find it.


  • Classic cars are special, and we can provide MOT testing for yours.


  • We clean and air dry the underside of your cherished classic and treat with a choice of clear or black waxoyl.


  • If you need to store your classic car for a short period or more long term, wouldn't it be reassuring to know that it was being stored by a highly skilled professional team who love their work?


  • When your car is with us we have a wide selection of courtesy cars for you to use.
