This very smart MGC Roadster has had only three UK owners from new, the first keeping it until 1978. Its second owner used it for a while before treating it to a full restoration where it then went to the previous owner in 1986 – 31 years ago. At that point it had covered 70,900 miles.
It has also received a full engine rebuild using genuine BMC components, new doors, front wings, sills and rear 1/4 panels which were all professionally fitted.
The previous owner kept a diary of all subsequent expenditure, which includes a new later type fold down hood (original sticks are still in the boot), a proper MGC steering wheel, rebuilt speedo (retaining the correct mileage), and an overhauled rev counter. Other sensible modifications include a single 12v battery mounted in a box in the boot, fresh carpets interior panels and a seat re-trim in the finest Connolly hide, which was carried out by Connolly of Wimbledon trimmers.
It has recently been fitted with new rear springs and shocks, and has been fitted with a working period radio. It has had new plugs along with new wiper blades, also fitted with a working overdrive, stainless exhaust and chrome wire wheels.
The car has been regularly serviced over the years, there are 25 old MOTs on file dating back to 1986 which indicates that it has only covered a mere 15,000 miles in 31 years, which brings it to a total of 86,000 miles it has covered in total.
Will come with 12 months MOT upon purchase.
Immaculate inside, needs to be viewed.
