Genuine 110k miles (2k per year). Non-overdrive. MOT until May 2014. This MGC GT is a very reliable car that has had no expense spared in last few years. The car has been owned recently by an MG enthusiast who has driven the car regularly. including a tour of Britain. This car will require minimal costs of upkeep following a significant overhaul. Five files of history dating back to MOT in 1977 (recorded mileage then was 73k miles). If you are looking for a well-priced. solid reliable ‘C' with a cheap upkeep. then this is the car for you.
