February 2015 – 1968 MGC Roadster

History

When I purchased the car in 1998 it was in pieces, the shell had been rebuilt but the rest was in boxes. It took me 2 years to source parts and rebuild the car, this included modifications to enable it to keep up with modern traffic. The mods include uprated engine with triple Weber carburettors, uprated brakes, steering and suspension all round.

It has been to Le Mans three times and has been round that track on two occasions. It regularly appears at Chesham Natter events in addition to many AWC events.
