1968 MGC Roadster
Location: United Kingdom
The MGC was a 2912cc straight six version of the MGB, sold from 1967 and produced through to August 1969. In the twin SU carburettor form used in the MGC, the 2912cc engine produced 145 bhp at 5250 rpm.
The body shell needed considerable revisions around the engine bay and to the floor pan, but externally the only differences were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a teardrop for carburettor clearance. It had different brakes from the MGB, 15 inch wheels with a lower geared rack and pinion steering and special torsion bar suspension with telescopic dampers.
