A superb example, nut and bolt restoration with photos available, as clean underneath as on top, fantastic attention to detail.

Original right hand drive UK market car supplied new to Brittains in Brighton, always on wire wheels with overdrive, heater and a folding hood and stunning in Tartan red.

Long under valued, really nice MGC's are now gaining ground and a proving to be a sound investment.

For sale at a fraction of the restoration cost, on behalf of the owner.

All our vehicles are available for viewing in our dry, well lit storage facility which is nearby. Viewing by appointment only please, preferably Thursday, Friday or Saturday morning when you can assure you our best of attention.


It is not often that we can describe a car as flawless but this example is as close as it comes, excellent panel fit, lovely glossy paintwork with an even shine, obviously no grot, rot or dings, absolutely superb.


A full mechanical overhaul was undertaken at the time of restoration so as you would expect, the car drives extremely well with no knocks bumps or rattles. The torquey three litre straight six engine sounds glorious with plenty of power and a fabulous soundtrack.


All brightwork is as new, lights are in excellent order as is the grille and all of the trim.


With new carpets and retrimmed seats, the interior is a delightful place to be with all of the switch gear working correctly, nicely weighted steering and a comfortable ride. 


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.
