MGC Roadster (modified & restored) 1968

MGC Roadster (modified & restored) 1968


This 1968 MGC Roadster is a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing……

With a whole list of enhancements carried out over several years, this is a classic which can be enjoyed and used on modern roads.

Much investment has been made;

  • Damico engine rebuild in 2014 (6,300 miles ago) comprising ported and gas flowed cylinder head, lightened piston conrods, lightened flywheel, lightened crankshaft, bored pistons to 3 litres and new fast road camshaft – rolling road suggest figure just shy of 200 bhp.
  • Timing and ignition now delivered by crankshaft position gauge and sensor and ignition coil pack.
  • High pressure fuel system feeding AT Power injection throttle bodies on alloy air inlets direct to the head
  • 5 speed Ford gearbox and gear reduction starter motor
  • Typhoon 2 ECU
  • Downton maniflow exhaust manifold joined to custom 2” stainless steel exhaust system (with lambda sensor access point)
  • Manifold and exhaust are coated in performance grey Zircotec (£815) to reduce engine bay cooling.
  • Original MGC waterpump plus additional conduit and valve to aid back cylinder (number 6) cooling.
  • Twin 9” electric fans (controlled by ECU) and uprated 4-core radiator.
  • Alloy top water filler ensures pressurised coolant system.
  • Alloy water jacket cover by Shaun Holmes Racing.
  • Normal air cooler for oil, oil temp gauge added
  • Uprated engine mounts.
  • Dual 12v battery system plus uprated 80 amp alternator
  • Battery cut off

The bodyshell was subject to a full rebuild by MG Motorsport back in 2005, taken back to bare metal, repaired and/or replaced where necessary and repainted in Snowberry white. There is a large selection of photographs chronicling the build, along with a huge and detailed folder of invoices, receipts, previous MOT certificates etc.

  • 17” wire wheels
  • Chrome luggage rack
  • Moto-Lita steering wheel
  • Black leather seats with white piping
  • Foldaway hood and tonneau (new in summer 2018)
