1969 MG MGC

1969 MG MGC

The MG C type was produced from late 1967 through 1969 and was initially built as a replacement for British Leyland's Austin Healy 3000 Mark III. The inline 6-cylinder engine was designed and built by Morris engines. With 2 SU carburetors the engine produced 145hp at 5,250 rpm. This was a significant upgrade in performance over the standard 4-cylinder version. Changes, given the larger size of the in line 6 cylinder included a “bulge” in the hood, relocated radiator, and carburetor tear drop in hood for greater clearance.

For consignment a very nice example of an MG MGC in British Racing Green, and black leather interior. This car comes with factory painted wire wheels, and the desired 4-speed transmission with overdrive. A very nice example of the rarest of B styled Cars from 1962 through 1980.

A chromed round rear view mirror sits proudly on the middle of the passenger fender. The chrome framed windshield with side rotating wind wings is seen also in very nice condition. 15” Rudge Type wire wheels are on all fours.

A virtually new interior with plenty of leather. Dash, door panels, and buckets, all covered in leather, and all pristine condition with no crack's wrinkles etc. Perfect carpet covers the floor and shows no wear.
