The MGC was a high performance inline-6 powered version of the MGB offered from 1967 through 1969. It was built by the British Motor Corp (Austin, MG, Morris, Riley, Wolseley, etc) as an intended replacement for the Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII and a competitor to the inline-6 powered Triumphs from Leyland Motors. We’ve featured a few MGCs over the years, but prices are on the way up and they get expensive, unless you get a total rust bucket like this next one.

I am not a connoisseur of barn finds — any vehicle that has had chickens roosting in the engine bay or rats chewing on the wiring harness for 20 years is not the car for me. But, I don’t want to discount the thrill of finding something covered in a tarp that is maybe more than meets the eye…or in this case, it is one of the rarest models to come out of Morris Garage — specifically the MGC GT of which this is one of 4457 built. It appears to be missing its 150 horsepower 2.9 liter C-series inline-6, but I bet a 2JZ would fit (I’m KIDDING! Please don’t do that…use an SR20DET instead..sheesh). Anyway, if an MGC GT is good enough for Prince Charles (who later gave it to Prince William according to the internet lore) then it should be good enough for you. And this one comes with a spare MGC parts car…or maybe it is vice-versa. Find this 1969 MGC GT & 1968 MGC offered for $7000 in West Monroe, LA via craigslist. Tip from Ramjet.
The zippy little MGB roadster was released by British Motor Corp (BMC) in 1962, followed shortly (in 1965) by the MGB GT hatchback/coupe version, but things got even more interesting in 1967 with the launch of the MGC — an inline-6 version and the MGC GT an inline-6 hatchycoupe version.

The MGC was two year experiment by the British Motor Corporation to inject some additional sportiness into their MGB chassis and replace the retiring Austin-Healey 3000. For whatever reason it didn’t sell well, making it one of the rarer variants from the 18 years of MGB production (1962-1980). Find this 1969 MGC here on eBay […]
The MGC was a six cylinder version of the MGB, first launched in 1967 as a replacement for British Motor Corp’s (Austin, MG, Morris, Riley, Wolseley, and Jaguar among others) long in the tooth Austin-Healey 3000. The MGC GT was a fixed roof (fastback or hatchback depending on who you ask) version of the MGC, […]
