The MGC was a 2912cc straight-6 version of the MGB and was sold from 1967 with production continuing through to August 1969. It had been intended to be a replacement for the Austin Healey 3000 that was now showing its age. In the twin SU carburettor form used in the MGC. the engine produced 145bhp at 5250rpm. The body shell needed considerable revision from its predecessor. particularly around the engine bay and floor pan. but externally the only differences were the distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a teardrop for carburettor clearance. It had different brakes from the MGB. 15 inch wheels. a lower geared rack and pinion steering and special torsion bar suspension with telescopic dampers. Like the MGB. it was available as a coupé and roadster. An overdrive gearbox or three-speed automatic gearbox were available as options. The car was capable of 120 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 10. 0 seconds.
