Ex U.K. ( JBH 876 ) and imported to Jersey in 2009 by an MGC collector and MG car racer, who owns two additional MGC's purpose built circuit racing MGC's (This was his road going MGC).
During his 12 year period of care the car underwent a program of maintenance, uprating, and restoration works which followed in the spirit of his race cars and was built to a fast road specification. He only covered some 2,700 miles during his ownership of which only 1,600 miles have been covered since a major mechanical / engine overhaul was undertaken in 2014.
Finished in Snowberry White with black leather interior and now with an uprated 5 speed gearbox.
This MGC drives and handles very well with a clean revving fast engine and a fairly rigid ride.
Open to offers in excess of £15,000. (Not below)
