A 1969 MG C roadster, registration number VFH 536G, chassis number GCN1/7134G, engine number 29G/RU/H4424, Mineral blue. With a limited production run of less than two years, MG’s C is one of the rarest models to be produced by the company. Somewhat misunderstood in period, they have gone on to become a highly collectible and sort after model, offering big Healey performance at a fraction of the cost. This beautifully presented and maintained example has been in the current ownership since 2007. Finished in Mineral blue with a black leather interior and matching weather gear consisting of a mohair hood and original specification tonneau cover, the roadster sits on period correct silver painted wire wheels. The body structure and paint finish are good with even panel gaps throughout. There is a large comprehensive history file accompanying the MG, with both historical and current receipts covering all aspects of works carried out over the years, including an engine rebuilt to fast road specification with an unleaded cylinder head by The Bromsgrove MG Centre, body restoration and numerous other items associated with a well restored and maintained car. The MG started readily on our inspection to take the catalogue images, having recently been fitted with new batteries, held good oil pressure and sounded particularly healthy through its stainless steel exhaust. VFH 536G will be offered for auction with the aforementioned history file, the original banjo type steering wheel (currently fitted with a sports leather and aluminium wheel) and will be greatly missed by our vendor.
