This fabulous driving MGC Automatic is an original RHD, Home market car, supplied new by University Motors Limited, London on the 3rd May 1968. The car was built between the 4th-9th April and left the factory in Tartan Red with automatic gearbox, disc wheels, heater and Dunlop SP tyres. The car was issued with the London registration number VGP 82F and this is still with the car today.
We do not have any early history; however original specification details are confirmed by the Heritage Certificate that is with the file of paperwork accompanying the car. We know from the history that the C has covered around 7,000 miles in the past ten years and we know it was previously owned by a Parliamentary Candidate for the Forest of Dean. In 2012 the MG sold to a classic car enthusiast who enjoys improving cars and between 2012 and 2014 a substantial amount of money was spent transforming the drive of the car and overall mechanical condition. The MG was treated to new brake calipers, brake discs, brake shoes, brake booster kit, Spax shock absorbers, polyurethane bushes to torsion bars, king pins, tie bars and anti-roll bars, dual fuel pump, fuel hoses, differential overhaul, new propshaft universal joints, new rear wheel bearings, alloy polished rocker cover, new steering rack, carburettors were stripped and rebuilt, new thermostat fitted and to really enhance the car from a cosmetic view, chrome wire wheels and brand new tyres have been fitted. More recently, the car has also been stripped down and fully re-painted in Tartan Red.
VGP 82F is a perfectly usable car driving superbly. The six cylinder engine runs superbly, holds excellent oil pressure and the automatic gearbox changes smoothly and offering a pleasant, comfortable cruising car. The brakes are ultra-sharp, the suspension perfectly set up and the steering is tight and correct. The C is structurally sound with a solid, straight underside and the bodywork is very smartly presented with a lovely paint finish. The chrome work is nicely presented, the chrome wires are excellent and the engine bay and boot area are well presented. The interior has aged beautifully with lovely Black leather with Red piping, good quality carpets, door cards and headlining. This rare Automatic MGC is a great buy and certainly offers good value.
