ABOUT THIS CAR

Rally Preparation Services are offering for sale this outstanding MGC Rally Car.

The MGC was first produced in 1967 with just a relatively short production run of less than 8999 units over its two years of production.

Introduced to the world at the Earls Court Motor Show sporting a six cylinder 145 bhp in line engine, torsion bar front suspension, larger road wheels, different floor pans and a host of other design differences underneath there was little for the untrained eye to tell the MGC apart from its MGB counterpart – other than the eye catching and distinctive giveaway of the bonnet bulges allowing for increased cooling capacity of the radiator and space for a third carburetor.

Car manufacturers always recognize the importance of campaigning their cars in motorsport, so MGC’s found their way into fulfilling the marketing departments requests of the British Motor Corporation when the Competitions Department were asked to ready cars for the 12-hour Sebring race in Florida.

This MGC is simply one of the loveliest, well-presented MG’s we have had in our hands. Not only does it look great, but it also stands well and sounds fantastic! It has the tell tales of being thought about when being built into an endurance rally car by the vendor.

Any gentleman’s rally car needs to be built with comfort, style, and substance all coming together. Sporting a pair of competition seats, roll cage, full harness seat belts, both a Monit and a Halda Trip meter and some of the most powerful driving lights on the market and you can see the level of detail and thought that has gone into the build.

Repatriated to the UK in 2014 the car was then prepared for long distance events with a very thorough strip down and significant rebuild fully supported by the history file.

Having successfully campaigned the car on the Endurance Rally Association’s Trans American rally in 2015 and then the 2016 Paris Vienna rally the car has had little use, so the vendor has now decided it is time for a new home for the car.

The car comes complete with a very comprehensive history file and a host of spares including the original seats, wire wheels with tyres, chrome bumpers, and very much more.

Ideally suited to classic rallies in the UK and abroad, or maybe even just enjoyed as a classic car this MGC represents exceptional value given the attention to detail and investment in the build quality.

The car is currently with RPS’ sister company – the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.
