(SOLD) This fabulous 1969 MGC GT offered here has undergone a comprehensive restoration to a Show / Driver level with no expense being spared. The car is handsomely finished in deep black with matching upholstery piped red. During the restoration process, the car was completely disassembled; the body was restored and finished in high quality paint. All systems were restored, rebuilt or replaced, including the fuel system, cooling system, hydraulic system and electrical system. All brite work was replaced, or replated; complete new upholstery was professionally installed. The engine, transmission, and all the components were completely rebuilt. Since the restoration, it has only seen a few test miles and benefits from fastidious maintenance within the private collection of its previous owner. In spectacular condition throughout, this rare MGC GT is complete with all tools and offers six-cylinder power to complement the timeless design of its predecessor. This is a great car for an MG collector, enthusiast, or even to start your collection, and is detailed and Concours ready.


Following decades of remarkable success on the racetrack and sales floor with its beloved four-cylinder sports cars, MG first experimented with six-cylinder power in 1967 with the release of the MGC, which neatly bridged the gap in BMC’s product line created by the demise of the Austin-Healey 3000. Like the MGB, the MGC features the stylish GT design, courtesy of famed Italian car designer, Pininfarina. Available in both Roadster and GT Coupe form, the new model looked much like the MGB, aside from a pair of pronounced hood bulges and larger 14-inch diameter wheels. To accommodate the larger engine, however, the MGC front suspension eliminated the coil springs of the MGB in favor of a torsion bar and wishbone arrangement.
