Presented in fashionable Mineral Blue, the paintwork on this car is very good indeed. The freshly-trimmed Black interior with white piping is also in exceptional order, with correct 18” three-spoke steering wheel of the period, and further benefiting from having had the dashboard and fascia replaced too.
Mechanically, whilst not dissimilar to the powerplant in the significantly more expensive Austin-Helaey 3000, there are actually only subtle differences to the ‘C’s’ 3-Litre engine, notwithstanding, the ‘C’ still celebrates a claimed 0-60 time in a shade under ten seconds, and the driving experience in our car is spirited enough in thanks to a sensibly refurbished engine. It holds great oil pressure, rises through the rev range quite happily and cruises at modern traffic speeds with overdrive engaged very happily. Also refurbished was the clutch and brake master cylinder, whilst the clutch slave cylinder, overdrive, petrol tank and both 6volt batteries were recently replaced.
In the cabin there is an FM converted modern stereo with a period look and it also has a lead to connect your phone.
This really is a smart and well-executed MGC GT with a host of past invoices, receipts for work that has been undertaken, Heritage Certificate and previous MOT’s. Wanting for nothing but an enthusiastic new owner, this car is ready to drive away today….
