Description for MG Other 1969

This is a beautiful 1969 MG MGC-GT which I have owned and enjoyed for several years, nd have taken to British Car events and shows as well as on some lovely long drives. This car is so smooth, onderful to drive, nd reliable, hat it has needed only the cosmetic restoration I have given it, s well as a new clutch, ll new brakes which omitted the troublesome dual servos which I do not have, nd a complete new cooling system and radiator. The overdrive works flawlessly, nd the engine absolutely purrs and never even thinks of getting hot after the recore of the factory radiator, nd a new water pump, oses, tc. I also replaced the entire fuel system and put in a new factory fuel tank when we rebuilt the twin SU carburetors. The car had been dry stored a few years and was what appears to be a legitimate low mileage car. Very unmolested. It was laid up with brake issues from the servos (now all corrected and it stops beautifully with brand new calipers and all hydraulic cylinders new for brakes and clutch.) Cosmetically I did the very intense job of a new full dashboard on the car. This is not a dash cap of any kind, nd requires complete removal and replacement. It looks wonderful. Included is the expensive piece for the radio console as well which I will include (see photo of extra parts) but did not install as I leave it to the new owner to decide what type of radio to use during the fitting of this piece.

The car has beautiful new leather seats in the correct pattern and style for this model year only, s well as a British Made new full carpet kit. The car was painted its original Primrose yellow to a very high standard, nd chrome trim and badges were replaced, ut the original bumpers looked quite good and remain with some average wear. The windshield has some scratching but all other glass is excellent and the windscreen is fine as is for a driver. There is no rust that I can find in either the floors or rocker areas and the rockers look like good quality steel replacements at some point. The trunk is perfect and the car is very solid with no corrosion in the battery box either. There are four recent high quality tires on solid wire wheels as well as a good spare wire wheel and tire, ack, nd spare wheel hardware. The period radio is not hooked up and the antennae hole has a rubber plug. All the gauges and electrics work, nd there is a new correct heater valve The fussy chrome covers for the liftgate springs were also replaced.

This is a very pretty way above average driver quality car, hat gets lots of attention at shows. It is such a pleasure to drive, nd with some needed detailing in the engine room, ould win club shows.New bumpers are quite inexpensive and would add to the beauty, nd the interior with its gorgeous new carpet, eather, nd high cost dash job is truly superb. The photo shows that I omitted the ashtray which is included, nd also the hard to find original air cleaner is there with one of the two mounting discs (the other can be fabricated easily) and the hardware. I also include a bit of a touring kit of new extra hose, elt, nd other items. I am selling this wonderful car to complete a recently acquired Triumph TR250 another smooth six cylinder British Sports car that I love. I will sorely miss my gorgeous C-GT. Low Reserve but don't ask. This auction is only 5 days and will run its course. If you've wanted a C-GT and have avoided the junk and projects wisely, his is your car finally arrived. Seems a lot of the automatics have been floating around too but a good, olid Overdrive C is getting harder to find. I do reserve the right to end early if one of the previously interested parties steps up, ut in all likelihood after the low reserve is met, omebody grabs a car you could never build for the price. It is a good one, rab it! Check my feedback. I don't sell one of my cars often, ut when I do its a great opportunity.
