1968 MG C ROADSTER – 78,000 MILES – £28,950

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 desirability of the car, and after only two years in production, the project was killed off.

So today with only 4000 roadsters built the MG C has become a sought-after rarity and with modern designed tyres and mild tweaking of the suspension, they now drive as they should have in the sixties.

With ongoing maintenance and paintwork which still looks fresh today this 145 bhp classic drives really well with a torquey engine and slick overdrive gearbox.

This is a grand touring car and the six-cylinder engine really transforms the MG into a super useable cruiser and with the overdrive long trips are a delight.

There is a history file with invoices, mots and owners log itemising work carried out, trips done and she is amongst the best I have seen.

We have previously sold and maintained her for a few years with upgrades such as twin electric fans, electronic ignition fitted also

Restored by a leading MG specialist in the 1990s she is still in beautiful condition and finished in Tartan red with black leather looks stunning with chrome wire wheels and overdrive.

With the rarity factor, it will not be long for these value-for-money cars to increase value in line with other brands.

We sold her a few years ago and have also maintained it since, with additions like twin elec fans, electronic ignition also integrated during service
