For fast, comfortable and relatively inexpensive vintage touring, MGC GT’s are hard to beat. This is due to many factors including the C’s six cylinder engine which produces around 50hp more than the four cylinder found in the MGB, and the spacious fixed roof that easily accommodates tall drivers and sizable luggage . In the case of this 1968 MGC GT, the particulars are even better. The car is claimed to be owned by a collector who employs two full time mechanics, and photos of this GT would seem to prove these claims true. Outside, the red paint and bodywork are attractive and clean and the center-lock minilight wheels looks absolutely fantastic. The bonnet is said to be the factory original aluminum piece and the chrome trim appears shiny and blemish free. Inside, black interior stands in fine condition with the only concessions to modern comfort and convenience being the modern stereo and the velour front seats. Finally, the engine bay looks to be that of a well-sorted and cared for driver. If the MGC were ours we’d replace the front seats with period-correct race buckets, hide the modern stereo and speakers, and hit the road. Find the MG for sale here on eBay in San Diego California with the reserve not yet met at $3,550.
