MG MGC GT - SOLD
Simply stunning, we are delighted to be able to offer for sale this beautiful MGC GT finished in striking Riviera Blue, an extremely rare colour for a 'C' and only available on the GT for a very short period of time. Set off by the rather fetching chrome wire wheels, this car has come to us from a local restorer who has made a very fine job of the vehicle, returning it to near new condition, the underside is as clean as the top and the interior is stunning. It has been a UK RHD car from new, stored for a long period and with lots of receipts and some old MoT certificates.
Totally different in character to the MGB the ‘C offers the classic MGB looks, but with added refinement, making it well suited to today’s classic market. Modern 185/70 radial tyres reduce understeer and uprated bushes improve the handling no end. As a tourer with an easy turn of speed and relaxed overdrive cruising, a well-sorted MGC is a delight.
A six-cylinder MG sports car had been suggested by Syd Enever’s team at Abingdon in the late 1950s, before the original MGB design was signed off. However, the venerable Austin-Healey 3000 was top of the BMC sports car ladder, so it was only when that model was phased out that the prospect of a six-cylinder MGB came to fruition.
The model is highly collectible and in a rare and attractive colour scheme, we don't expect the car to be here long.
For sale on behalf of the owner, available for viewing in our dry, well lit sales barn, by appointment please.
Absolutely rock solid throughout, it has been welded in places but it is not the usual patchwork quilt, as can be seen from the underside photos. The panel gaps are all very good and the car is quiet and rattle free on the move.
With every component either replaced, reconditioned or re-engineered, as you would expect the car drives wonderfully with a smooth torquey engine, which has been balanced, rebuilt gearbox and overdrive everything is as clean as a whistle. The engine bay in particular is a delight with an 'as new' appearance.
The colour really suits the car especially when accompanied by a glistening set of new chrome wire wheels, the remaining chrome is as new and all of the lighting equipment is in excellent condition.
Completely retrimmed, the seats are lovely and in a most attractive blue/navy colour, the carpets are new as is the dashboard.
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!
