For Sale: 1969 MGC Roadster in Colorado

 

This is a rare version of the popular MGB convertible, but with a more powerful 6 Cylinder engine, beefier transmission, bigger brakes and larger 15" wire wheels. The engine shares displacement with the Austin Healey 3000, but the MG engine has seven main bearings (instead of 4 for the Healey) and was a completely new unit. This one is a typical Colorado car – no rust anywhere, and no evidence of damage or damage repair anywhere. It was repainted from the original dark blue to the bright red, and while it presents well, there are some spots of overspray and some defects in it here and there.

 

The convertible top is in excellent shape, and the interior is clean and functional – seats have no tears and the dashboard is crack free. There is also an included tonneau cover. The MGC has 15” wire wheels, and this one has new Vredestein Sprint Classic tires – correct and perfect for a vintage sports car. Has electric overdrive. It runs and drives very well – recent maintenance, including the tires, suspension and brake master cylinder work. It steers, stops and starts very well for a vintage British car. Koni shocks contribute to a firm, sporty ride. There is a click from the right rear, but I suspect a loose centerlock nut. It isn't perfect cosmetically, and is priced accordingly as an average condition car. Being rust free and able to jump in and use it reliably is this car's great appeal. If an owner wished, it could be used while some of the cosmetic issues are dealt with, increasing the car's value over time.
