Long before there was a Mazda Miata, there were MGs. A pinnacle of 1960s simplicity and fun wrapped in a tidy package, many of these twoseaters found favor with drivers seeking an escape from Detroits much larger vehicles. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this 1969 MG MGC, which is the rarely seen 6 cylinder Big Brother to the ever popular MGB.
This particular unit was one of only 1,757 built for export to the United States in 1969 and it was had aA comprehensive nut and bolt restoration some years ago. It is being sold on an actual mile title showing only 39710 miles.
Dressed in Classic Primrose Yellow, the cars paint and trim are in excellent order. The cars glass panels, lights, and bodywork are all similarly spectacular. This car includes the rare factory hardtop in addition to the black softtop, plus it comes with both short and full tonneau covers. The engine bay is quite tidy and the cars chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body. Note that this roadster comes with three windshield wipers.
This MG rolls on Michelin XZX radials, size 165SR15 at all four corners and each tire surrounds a factory chrome, 72spoke, doublelaced wire wheel. There is also a spare wire wheel included. The cars tool kit includes a knockoff wrench, lead hammer and a jack, all located in the boot (trunk).
Under the bonnet (hood) is a 2.9L straight sixcylinder engine with dual SU HS6 oneinch carburetors, making a spritely 145 horsepower, which is more than enough gusto to move this light car from a stop. Mated to the motor is a fourspeed manual transmission with overdrive.
Inside, the car has black Connolly leather seats with the correct 1969 headrests. The seats are in very good order, as is the matching Wilton wool carpet. The threespoke MG steering wheel is present and looks spiffy. The instrument panel is excellent while the inner door panels are in very good order. The shifter looks ready for action. Completing the interior is a Kenwood AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
The MGC was a 2,912cc,straightsixversion of the MGB sold from 1967 and only produced until August 1969 with some sales running on into 1970. The first engine to be considered was an Australiandesigned sixcylinder version of the BMC BSeries but the production versions used a new sevenmainbearing development of the Morris Engines designedCSeriesthat was also to be used for the newAustin threeliterfourdoor saloon.The body shell needed considerable revisions around the engine bay and to the floor pan but externally, the only differences were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a teardrop for carburetor clearance. It had different brakes from the MGB, 15inch wheels,a lower geared rackandpinion and specialtorsion barsuspension with telescopic dampers. Like the MGB, it was available as a coup (GT) and roadster. An overdrive gearbox or threespeed automatic gearbox were available as options. The car was capable of 120mph and a 060mph time of 10.0seconds.
Documentation includes MGC handbook, MGC workshop manual, SU carburetor rebuild manual and the Best of C Notes manual.
