MGC Overdrive GT (1969). Nice MGC GT regularly maintained, no corrosion. Matching number. The MGC was a 2,912 cc inline six-cylinder version of the MGB, sold from 1967 until August 1969. Intended as a replacement for the Austin-Healey 3000 Mk. III, it had significant improvements over the MGB, with much more engine power, 15-inch wheels, and a special torsion bar suspension with telescopic shocks. This MGC was imported from California, USA, in 2001 to France, and was the subject of technical improvements. It has 36,200 kms on the odometer, to which should be added the 90,000 original miles, that is to say approximately 181,000 kms.
The car has its original engine, with its double SU carburetor, which produces 150 hp at 5,250 rpm. The car is capable in its factory version of reaching 193 km/h and a 0 to 100kmh time of 10.0 seconds, which is an interesting performance for the time. It is equipped with its original 4-speed manual gearbox, with an overdrive on 3rd and 4th.
This MGC received technical improvements to enhance the driving experience, with new steering, improved front suspension and, (to allow the engine to breathe), a six-branch manifold and dual exhaust. In addition, the clutch has been replaced. A lighter balanced flywheel, electronic ignition and thermostatic cooling were installed. The speedometer has been converted to km.
The owner states that there are no corrosion problems and that the tires are 50% worn. In excellent structural and mechanical condition, the car passed a technical inspection recently (1/4/2022), which found only two minor defects (slight wear on rear tires and both steering pivots).
