Early in the design stages of the MGB there was an intention to
create high performance variants. using a range of V8 engines that
did not make it to production. One such variant was the MGC -
very much more than a tuned MGB and in fact a completely
re-engineered car although retaining many visual connections
to the MGB. On the outside the MGC was often mistaken for an MGB as
the only visual differences were in the heavily bulged bonnet with
a transverse chrome strip that accentuated the bulges and the
standard use of 15" wheels instead of 14". Inside there were few
differences between the B and C other than the 140mph speedo and
tacho with a yellow and red banding set against lower rpms than the
MGB. Under the skin though and the differences became obvious with
most changes up front. The engine was a BMC C series six cylinder
2912cc unit of the type used in the Austin Healey 3000 which added
considerable weight as well as bulk. This required a new torsion
bar front suspension along with uprated braking.

This MGC GT is fitted with a manual gearbox and overdrive and
was subject to a cosmetic restoration to an extremely high standard
by the previous owner who owned a body repair shop. It was
restored over a period of time only replacing cosmetic parts that
required replacing. keeping the originality of the car wherever
possible and. at the same time. the suspension and braking systems
where completely overhauled. The current owner has recently had the
car fully serviced. had two twelve volt batteries fitted. to
replace the original six volt batteries to boost starting power and
for reliability. and new Firestone 185/65/15 inch tyres all round.
Finished in the original colours of old English white with black
leather seats. it comes
supplied with a V5C registration document. an MoT test certificate
which expires in May 2014 and old test certificates. This is an
extremely sound example that drives well and has been properly
detailed underneath including a Wax Oil; the new owner can be safe
in the knowledge of a job well done. This represents an
extremely well appointed. well prepared and. as the name suggests. br/>well considered Grand Tourer.
