1969 1968 MG C GT For Sale

Le Mans Sale


1968 MGC GT classic sports car, registration number LTU 274G, first registered in the UK on the 5th November 1979, Petrol 2912cc, Manual transmission, 4, 950 miles, finished in Primrose with Black interior trim and wooden steering wheel. Extensive history file. Supplied with a fresh service and MOT.

LTU 274G is a very well presented US MGC with RHD conversion; comprehensive MOTO-BUILD restoration 2017; rebuilt engine and box; unleaded head; chrome wires; overdrive; extensive history file.

Originally sold through Washington (US) based dealers in 1968, it was imported back into the UK in 1979. It was subsequently converted to RHD during an expensive restoration which took place in 2017.

LTU 274G moved to Spain in 2018 where it was offered for sale pre-Covid, but has found its way back home and is ready for a new owner to enjoy.

Photos, invoices and notes on file point to its restoration by MOTO-BUILD in Egham in 2017, which included the RHD conversion. They also fitted a large bore radiator, new clutch cylinders, a wooden steering wheel, new lights, rear springs, stainless exhaust, fuel tank, front and rear bumpers, chrome grille, chrome wires and new tyres, belts and mirrors and a new leather interior.

During this restoration the engine was also fully rebuilt - including a rebore and skim, new +. 020" pistons, the flywheel was lightened and refaced and the bottom-end rebalanced. It had new main and thrust bearings and a new timing chain and tensioner along with fresh water and fuel pumps. The gearbox was also rebuilt. The head was overhauled with new valves, guides and springs and the head modified to take unleaded petrol.

By 1993, the recorded mileage was just under 80, 000, the odometer rising to 3, 910 miles (103, 910) just prior to the restoration work. Now showing 4, 950, barely 1, 000 miles have been covered on the rebuilt engine and box!

With a strong solid shell, lots of new parts and just a few miles covered since a comprehensive engine and gearbox rebuild, this pretty Primrose MGC is super value.
