MOT: Exempt
Estimate: £9,000 - £11,000

Motor Car Location: Shropshire

  • First registered in London, April 1969
  • Current ownership since 2011
  • Subject to new parts & mechanical fettling in 2020
  • 1 of c.2000 GTs built for the UK market

Intended as a flagship sportscar to replace the Austin-Healey 3000, the MGC was introduced in autumn,1967. Based around the same two-door monocoque bodyshell as the humble MGB (albeit with a substantially altered engine bay and floor pan) externally, the only differences were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a teardrop for carburettor clearance. The newcomer was powered by a 2912cc OHV straight-six engine and promised a 120mph top speed. Too readily confused with its four-cylinder sibling to be a sales success, the MGC was dropped in 1969 after just 4,544 Roadsters and 4,458 GTs had allegedly been made.

Desirably finished in British Racing Green with a Black interior, this late production 1969 MGC GT wears ‘XF’ reg number 2 letter area code suggests first registration in London. 1 of 2,034 ‘C’ GT coupes built for the UK market, this example has the Borg Warner automatic transmission for taking advantage of the smooth BMC 6-cylinder engine. In addition, the specification includes a Webasto-type sliding fabcric sunroof and iconic wire wheels (silver-painted). Displaying a mere c.54,000 miles, this ‘C’ appears to have been the subject of a previous older restoration, with current ownership since 2011.

In 2020 the car benefitted from mechanical work, including some new components; a new alternator, fuel pump, rear brake cylinders and shoes, water pump, coil and fuse box. Other work included carburettor fettling, cleaning and balancing, the fitment of electronic ignition and the valve clearances adjusted. Some further improvements are required, relating to an inoperative boot lock and the supplied new steering column cowling that requires fitting. Included in the sale is a collection of invoices and other documents relating to the car.
