Intended to replace the Austin-Healey 3000, the MGC was introduced in the autumn of 1967. While early reports criticised its 'nose heavy' handling, later ones were much kinder and, with 145bhp on tap, the model could complete the 0-60mph dash in 10 seconds and achieve 120mph flat out. Nevertheless, it was axed in 1969 after just 4,544 Roadsters and 4,458 GTs had been made, somewhat prematurely when considering the success University Motors subsequently enjoyed with the model.

Finished in old English White matched to a Black interior ‘NUO808G’ has been subject to much recent mechanical fettling which has included a new brake servo, wiring loom, 12v batteries, fuel tank, wheel refurbishment with new hub caps and tyres, carburettor overhaul, replacement dashboard and new interior carpets. Understood to have received a bodywork restoration and repaint in c.2007 the MG is fitted with sensible upgrades such as Spax dampers, S/S exhaust system and is offered with a collection of invoices and current V5c. The vendor currently grades the engine, transmission, interior, electrical equipment and bodywork all as ‘Very Good with the paintwork as ‘Good’. Although exempt the MG is offered with a current MOT into October 2021. Surely worthy of closer inspection.

Vendor Condition Ratings:

Bodywork: 'Very Good’
Engine: 'Very Good'

Gearbox: 'Very Good'
Interior Trim: 'Very Good'
