1970 MG C GT – 43,000 MILES – 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 in Dec 1968 and supplied directly to Morris Garages Oxford and it is believed then used as a “Recce car” for the Works rally team until being registered in 1970 by University Motors and sold.
There is a Heritage certificate in the file including the info and she still has the original engine having undegone restoration in the late 1990s she still prevents very well and still finished in her original colour of BRG.
This is a real wolf in sheep clothing and surprises other road users with its performance and long-legged cruising ability.
There is a Webasto sunroof, wire wheels and overdrive meaning any journey can be undertaken without stress.
Supplied fully inspected, serviced with 12 months warranty.
