Lot 124 - 1969 MG C Roadster
|£21,000 - £25,000
The arrival of the MGC in 1967 was greeted with mixed reaction from enthusiasts and the motoring press alike. It can be described as one of the most controversial sports cars ever produced from Abingdon and during its short life the car was never short of attention, particularly from journalists. Upon its launch, the MGC was available in roadster form at £1,102 and in GT form at £1,249 and was considered very reasonably priced for one of the fastest production MGs produced. If, however, used as a relaxed high-speed tourer, the MGC was an extremely civilised motor car to drive.
This example is presented in red with a black leather interior and black hood. There is a history file with invoices detailing its recommissioning and also the car comes with a Heritage Certificate. In the history file there is some paperwork outlining what works have been carried out in detail in 2016 and before (too much to mention in this description). In short, a considerable amount of money has been spent on this lovely MGC, the details of which are worth reading. These rare models with their six-cylinder 2.6 litre engine are only visibly different from other roadsters, by the small bump on the bonnet! These are fun to drive with their lively engine which produces a very satisfying exhaust note. It’s a fun, fast and affordable classic offering open top motoring as all classics should be!
