MG Cs may have had a rough ride in period, but good ones are now very sought after on the classic market, as enthusiasts increasingly appreciate what a fine car it is in its own right rather than viewing it as an MG B with a difference. This extremely smartly-presented example is finished in the contrasting combination of Old English White bodywork and Black interior trim with white pipping. Having received an extensive bodywork restoration in c.2003, it further benefits from an MG Motorsport fast road engine, complete with triple 45 Weber Carburettors, Maniflow 6 branch manifold with duel pipe and twin rear box exhaust system, rebuilt gearbox and overdrive, uprated suspension and brakes, quick rack with EZ power steering, MGOC executive seats - other extras include chrome wire wheels and boot rack, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. CAN 976H has been in the current ownership for the last 14 years and is offered with a large history file documenting all work completed and a collection of old MOT certificates dating back to the 1980's. The vendor currently grades the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, six-cylinder engine and four-speed overdrive gearbox as all being in very good order. It comes complete with an MOT into August 2017.
