MGC Roadster


Classic Classics are pleased to present this stunning MGC Roadster.

First registered new by J Cookshoot (Manchester) Ltd and  subsequently sold to Mr S T Furniss, FLG 859G was then further enjoyed by 2  owners before later being sold by Manchester Garages Ltd to Mr Ollerenshaw on the 02.11.1970 for the princely sum of £800.00od. The car then remained in his ownership until 2018, some 52 years !  

Originally finished in White, this MGC underwent a colour change to Mineral Blue along with a substantial body restoration in 2011. This work was carried out by MG Specialists Snowdens of Harrogate and we have the original invoice for just shy of £17000. In fact the car underwent a full restoration from 2010 – 2015 and the car has been used very sparingly since and this shows by the amazing condition it still presents in today.

This MGC certainly has had a no expense spared refurbishment with invoices totalling around £37000 !

On the road the car performs very well and is a pleasure to drive. The 6 cylinder engine has had some nice upgrades with a new set of Triple Weber 45 DCOE carburettors fitted, the cylinder head has been converted to unleaded fuel and also fitted with Kent AH2 profile camshaft, Uprated fuel pump(with pressure regulator),  Maniflow Stainless exhaust system with plasma coated exhaust manifolds, CSI electronic distributor, lightened flywheel with an uprated clutch and a 5 speed gearbox.  The car has also has a 12v battery conversion.  Cooling the car is taken care of by twin Kenlowe electric fans. The suspension has been upgraded with Koni adjustable rear shocks and Spax adjustable front shockers. All front suspension bushes have been replaced with Superflex bushes. 

Inside the car has just had the same amount of attention as well from the luxurious soft Black Leather Seats, the deep pile carpet to the padded Mohair Roof this all adds to the enjoyment of the car. The speedometer has been serviced and recalibrated to suit the gearbox and tyre changes along with the rev counter to suit the to suit the CSI distributor.

If you are looking for an MGC Convertible then this has to be the one.
