Nicely restored with various choice upgrades; Toyota 5-speed box;
triple SU carbs; LSD; 4-pot brakes; stainless steel sports exhaust; new Stayfast
As the Heritage Certificate confirms, this MGC Roadster was built in June 1968 and was originally finished in Snowberry White with a black interior. A RHD car with overdrive, wire wheels and a heater, it was destined for the South African market.
Nothing is known of the car’s subsequent history but it has clearly been restored to a high standard at some point in the not-too-distant past, with many choice upgrades. These include: Toyota Supra 5-speed gearbox; Salisbury limited slip diff; triple SU carbs; 6-branch stainless steel sports exhaust; electronic ignition; high torque starter motor; K&N filters; Aeroquip hoses; stainless steel fuel lines; uprated 4-pot front brake calipers; polybushed suspension; negative camber kit; 76-spoke 6”J wire wheels; Moto-Lita steering wheel; walnut dash and door cappings; chrome luggage rack; new Stayfast hood.
Our vendor bought the car while he was living in South Africa and shipped it back to the UK (with all duties paid) when he returned here in 2017. It flew through its MOT in May 2017 with no advisories recorded, since when it has only covered around 800 fine weather miles. Invoices show that various new parts have recently been fitted including a sports coil, leather gearknob, rubber window seals, brake and clutch master cylinder seals etc. The vendor believes that all the panels/structure are original and have not been welded/repaired due to the dry climate in which it has lived. The V5C records it as a Historic Vehicle so it is free to tax and MOT-exempt.
Starting promptly and running beautifully as we have moved it around on site, with good 40psi oil pressure, it looks absolutely wonderful with just a few very minor paint blemishes here and there. A white works-style hardtop is also available by separate negotiation if desired.
Gamely entered at no reserve, this lovely and sensibly uprated MGC is here to be sold so the best bid takes it home.
