This is a real find. it being one of the rare Downton Engineering triple carburettor No45 modified MGC's. Downton claimed the addition of the 3rd carburettor resulted in more torque and power characteristics whilst maintaining good economy. Power was approx 174BHP.
A substantial amount of bodywork restoration was done in 1988 as can be seen in the accompanying photograph album. Whilst the car remains very solid with straight panels. the elements have caused the paint to fade and there are minor areas of surface rust. Mechanically sound with excellent driving characteristics.
Can be sold as it is. and with a little TLC will reward the owner with endless motoring enjoyment. The car is finished in red with black leather interior and is supplied with works styled hard-top in white making a striking combination. fitted with Minilite style alloy wheels.
