1968 MG C GT FAST ROAD SPEC – SOLD
By the late sixties, it was clear that MG had a great car with the MG B but many owners were requesting more power and by 1967 the MG C was conceived and muted to be the replacement for the historic Healey 3000!
However, the press and indeed customers were not impressed with early reports of a heavy front-end provoking understeer and this did irrevocable damage to the car’s desirability and after only two years in production, the project was killed off.
So today with only 4,000 coupes built, the MG C has become a sought-after rarity.
This stunning example was built for the UK market and registered in 1968
An extensive restoration was carried out in early 2015 by an MG specialist costing over £40k and she still presents superbly today.
