MG MGC GT Coupe 1967 – 1969 Long Sleeve T-Shirt
The MGC was basically a MGB equipped with a straight-6 cylinders. The car was given the model code ADO52. It was intended as a replacement for the Austin-Healey 3000. The first engine to be considered was an Australian-designed six-cylinder version of the BMC B-Series. In the twin SU carburetor form used in the MGC the engine produced 145 hp. The body shell needed considerable revision around the engine bay and to the floor pan, but externally the only differences were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a teardrop for carburetor clearance. Like the MGB, it was available as a coupé (GT) and roadster. The car was capable of 120 mph (193 km/h) and a 0–60 mph time of 10.0 seconds. The heavy engine and new suspension changed the vehicle's handling, and it received a very mixed response in the automotive press. Poor reviews also stemmed from the fact that, despite BMC's marketing, the MGC was not a direct replacement for the Austin-Healey 3000 and neither was it a higher-performance MGB. The MGC was cancelled in 1969 after less than two years of production. Today the car is considered very collectible and the main causes of the poor reputation relating to handling have been overcome by better tires and subtle modification of suspension settings. In 1967 HRH Prince Charles took delivery of an MGC GT (SGY 766F), which he passed down to Prince William 30 years later.
