1968 MGC Road­ster

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Many en­thu­si­asts are pre­pared to take on a project, and cars that en­joy great spares back-up will al­ways fare well. That was the case with this MGC Road­ster, which is believed to have been Stage 3 tuned by renowned BMC tweaker Down­ton. It runs and drives but had been off the road for a long time, so the me­chan­i­cal depart­ment war­ranted at­ten­tion, as did the body­work. The paint was clearly and unashamedly poor, there were signs of cor­ro­sion, and what the paint hid might have put some pun­ters off. How­ever, the floor­pan de­scribed as ‘good’. Lift­ing the bon­net re­vealed a scruffy en­gine bay but at least the in­te­rior was sur­pris­ingly tidy – the seats are rel­a­tively re­cent re­place­ments – but all-in-all, with ‘C val­ues ris­ing – plus the fact this was a Down­ton-mod­i­fied car – it was an in­ter­est­ing buy for some­one.
