Description


This is a Replica of the (6) factory race models that were created to compete in the 12-Hours of Sebring. Fiberglass fender flares (nicely done) with custom paint and race replica decals adorn this Coupe. Mini-lite magnesium alloy wheels with newly re-chromed knock-off spinners and New Goodyear rubber on all 4 tires.
The MGC's 2.9L six-cylinder weighed 567 pounds - about 207 pounds more than a regular MGB engine. The engine features a seven main bearing crankshaft.
The MGC was conceived as a premium-priced, six-cylinder variant of the popular MGB. There were already two versions of the MGB: the MGB convertible had been introduced in 1962 and the MGB GT coupe began production in 1965. Both the MGB convertible and the MGB GT came with 1.8 liter four-cylinder engines.
The MGC represented an extension of the MG range into higher horsepower and price classes.
The MGC was designed around on a brand new six-cylinder engine. The BMC engine designers believed that thin-wall casting technology would facilitate making the new engine substantially lighter than previous designs. Although thin-wall technology did allow closer spacing of cylinders for a shorter overall length, they missed every weight target. When a prototype engine was complete, it was at least 70 pounds heavier than expected.
The engine's height and weight meant a new front crossmember and new front suspension were required. Other differences: larger radiator mounted farther forward, bigger brakes, bigger wheels and tires, and a different steering rack ratio to ameliorate the higher steering effort required.
One styling change made the MGC easy to spot: a bulged bonnet with a smaller blister for the forward carburetor. Bottom line: the MGC was about 340 pounds heavier than a comparable MGB and it arrived at a budget-breaking cost.
In contrast to the MGB and the Midget models, which were produced for eighteen and nineteen years respectively, MGC production spanned less than three years and ceased in August 1969.
One of less than 4,500 'C' GT's built. Who knows how many remain!
History of this car; we have owned and restored the car over the past 10 years. The previous owner had the car since 1990. The work is done, and now you have the opportunity to enjoy the car as much as we have!
