MGC Roadster 1968 Manual Overdrive

The MGC was introduced in 1967 with an increase in power and performance over the MGB as a sports tourer. It is fitted with a 3 litre straight 6 cylinder engine (145BHP) giving superb long distance touring ability. MGC’s are becoming increasingly collectable. In total MG made only around 4500 “C Roadsters”, many will have reverted back to component parts, and the ones that are left are increasing significantly in value.

This car finished in Tartan red is fitted with a black leather interior piped in red. It comes complete with Chrome wire wheels shod with excellent Continental Tyres. Also the hood looks almost new too, and comes with a Tonneau cover.

This car is in absolutely fabulous condition. It is in fact a well known former Premier Award winner at the fabled National Classic Car Concours at Beaulieu. The car was stripped right back, then lovingly rebuilt, new wings all round. All chrome re-plated, even the grill was stripped to its component parts and re-plated. The interior was professionally re-upholstered, and then it won this prestigious award. All this is fully documented in an edition of Classic Car Magazine, a copy of which comes in the history file with the car. At the time the car had covered around 50,000 miles. With a combination of MOT and service bills and invoices from that time, it appears that this car may only have covered around 72000 miles in total. In all this is one superb MGC. It now has a gorgeous patinated finish that simply cannot be created successfully in paintshop. It has that glorious deep, lustrous shine that only comes with years of cherishing and polishing. It starts on the button, runs like a dream, and is the simply ideal MGC Roadster.

MGC’s are now climbing in value, and this car at only £17995 is less than half the price of some currently on the market. But you can be assured it is not half the car; we reckon this car represents excellent value for money. It’s our guess that others will too.
