1968 MGC GT

Registration Number: HDS 112G
Chassis Number: GCD162359

Intended to replace the Austin-Healey 3000, the MGC was introduced in the autumn of 1967. While early reports criticised its 'nose heavy' handling, later ones were much kinder and, with 145bhp on tap, the model could complete the 0-60mph dash in 10 seconds and achieve 120mph flat out. Nevertheless, it was axed in 1969 after just 4,544 Roadsters and 4,458 GTs had been made, somewhat prematurely when considering the success University Motors subsequently enjoyed with the model.

A home market car, HDS 112G was delivered in April 1969 by Leslie Porter Limited of Belfast, finished in Tartan Red with Black leather interior and a manual gearbox. The MGC has more recently benefited from a detailed restoration courtesy of a regarded marque specialist, and now presents very nicely in its original colour scheme with new chromed wire wheels.

Accompanying this lovely MG is a file of work carried out during restoration, invoices for servicing and parts acquired, Heritage Certificate, current V5C and MoT certificate valid to May 2024.
