Introduced in late 1967, the MGC had a relatively short life span of only two years, the last models being made in 1969 with only 2034 RHD GT’s being produced. The UK's economic climate and escalating fuel prices eventually killed off the 3 litre MGC, with the last converted cars being sold by University Motor’s in 1970. PUJ 89F was supplied new by Ruette Braye Motors in Guernsey and first registered in May 1969 then found its way to Jersey in the 1970's and used sparingly since. Subsequently sold by ourselves 2013 to the previous UK owner who was a huge MGC enthusiast. He then undertook a program of works to the car and re-registered it with an age related UK number. On leaving Jersey the MGC had only covered some 39,000 miles (which is not unusual for an Island car) and now the odometer reading is just in excess of 45,000 miles. Supported by the Heritage records, this is a matching numbers car, and being an automatic is one of only 355 RHD drive cars produced. The previous owner has improved the car and very recently the car has been subject to considerable works to include a bare metal repaint and panel work attention, interior trim work with upgraded seat bases, and a mechanical overhaul with some performance upgrades.
An excellent low mileage matching numbers MGC GT in superb condition throughout. Recent works includes the engine upgraded and overhauled by Vic Young ,(the MG Car Club’s’C’ technical officer), marque specialists The Village Garage in East Grinstead attended to the body, paint and detailing works, Roger Jenner in Haywards Heath carried out the interior trim work. As can be appreciated a considerable spend was undertaken on the car by the previous owner. PUJ 89F was recently featured in Classic Cars magazine taking pole position as the front cover car and with the 50th anniversary of the MGC this year, like other marques having similar anniversaries there may well be more interest in the model and potentially a price spike.
