1969 MG MGC GT Coupe
Fully restored by aPennsylvania marque specialist. This could easily be one of the nicest GT Coupes to be found anywhere in the world!
Only 243 miles since the restoration.
145 bhp, 2,912 cc OHV inline six-cylinder engine, twin SU carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive, independent front suspension with torsion bars and wishbones, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and front disc, rear drum hydraulic brakes.
Following decades of remarkable success on the racetrack and sales floor with its beloved four-cylinder sports cars, MG first experimented with six-cylinder power in 1967 with the release of the MGC, which neatly bridged the gap in BMCs product line created by the demise of the Austin-Healey 3000. Available in both Roadster and GT Coupe form, the new model looked much like the MGB, aside from a pair of pronounced hood bulges and larger 14-inch diameter wheels. To accommodate the larger engine, however, the MGC front suspension eliminated the coil springs of the MGB in favor of a torsion bar and wishbone arrangement.
With 145 horsepower and plenty of torque on tap, the MGC was the most powerful car MG produced during the era, trumping even the later V8-equipped MGBs of the mid-1970s. Contemporary road tests revealed that while it was just one second quicker than its predecessor in the zero-to-60 mph sprint, the MGC offered a much higher top speed, exceeding 120 mph. An automatic gearbox was available, and in GT Coupe form, the MGC offered a slight performance edge over its Roadster sibling due to its improved aerodynamics. Production would only last three years however, with only about 9,000 examples ultimately built, including 4,449 GT coupes.
