A genuine UK right hand drive car from new, supplied to The Bedford Garage in Exeter on 1st March 1968. The car has always been finished in this very attractive shade of Primrose Yellow, it being the third car in this shade that a local specialist has restored.

Boasting a thorough and detailed restoration which has included a fully sandblasted shell and a complete repaint, it must now be one of the finest examples available.

Mechanically, it is spot on with a fully rebuilt lightened and balanced engine with every other component being either new or reconditioned.

For sale on behalf of the owner and available for viewing, by appointment, in our dry, well lit sales barn.


Fully restored with four new old stock wings, good panel fit and is immaculate underneath and on top.


Having been fully apart and rebuilt by experts, as you would expect, the car drives superbly with no knocks or rattles, a smooth gearbox with a seamless overdrive action and with that lusty 3 litre engine up front it is a delightful driving experience.


Having been fully repainted, as you would expect, the paintwork is glorious and really set off by the sparkling chrome and wire wheels.


Everything is new, the carpets, the hood, the dashboard has been reconditioned, new moulded carpets, new seat belt....everything is literally, as new.


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.
