MG MGC Roadster - SOLD
Another superb example restored by our local MGC specialist to a very high standard throughout.
Developed from the MGB as a successor to the Healey 3000, the MGC was launched in 1967 in Roadster and GT forms with a 3 litre straight six, front suspension changes and a bonnet bulge. Over 9,000 cars were produced in two years until the model was discontinued in 1969 with a high proportion going to the USA.
This car is one of those, an ex-Texas vehicle where the climate is much kinder to older cars and hence the shell remains largely original but has been stripped and every item either replaced or reconditioned.
Very different to drive, when compared to an MGB, the MGC offers a more refined driving experience and with cruise happily at motorway speeds feeling composed and relaxed.
The engine bay on this car is superb with astonishing attention to detail and overall the car gives the impression of being in near new condition.
Available for viewing in our dry, well lit sales barn, by appointment please.
For sale on behalf of the owner.
Simply superb, high quality repaint, excellent panel fit and arrow straight.
Fully reconditioned, everything performs as it should and the car was a delight on test drive. The engine has been rebuilt by an ex-motorsport professional who has lightened and balanced the engine throughout, it really is one of the quietest we have heard but with a smooth and steady surge of power when on the move.
The overall appearance is impressive from the new chrome wire wheels shod with new Falken tyres through to the spotless chrome, excellent bumpers and general brightwork. The hood, of packaway variety, is new.
Everything is new so, as you would expect, is of superb appearance with all switchgear working correctly including the overdrive which engages with a simple switch flick.
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!
