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.

First registered in August of 1968, the MGC was later subject to a restoration in 2007, in addition to much mechanical work, supported by various receipts on file. More recent work includes further attention to the brakes, a new wiring loom and batteries, a carburettor overhaul, replacement fuel tank and the refinishing of the road wheels. Sensible upgrades include Spax adjustable dampers all round and a stainless steel exhaust system. We note the interior has also been treated to a replacement dashboard and new carpeting. 

Nicely finished in Old English White with a Black interior, and offered with a file of invoices for previous restoration and maintenance work, current UK V5C document and a newly issued MoT certificate, this smart example is well worth a closer look.
