Just In From A Large MG Collection And An Avid MG Restorer

To the untrained onlooker, there is almost no difference between the ubiquitous MGB and the MGC. Oh yeah, there's that purposefully bulged "bonnet," but few notice the one-inch-larger-diameter wheels or different markings on the gauges. Without lifting the hood, how can they tell? It's this reason that the MGC, in both open Tourer and closed GT forms, was M.G.'s best-kept secret, one that the MGC faithful have been championing for 40 years.

The "M.G. Division" of British Motor Holdings--until 1967, BMC, and to follow in 1969, British Leyland--was tasked with creating a replacement for the long-lived Austin-Healey 3000, and the corporate bosses latched onto Abingdon's plan to build a six-cylinder MGB. Donald Healey himself squashed the idea of a Healey-badged M.G., but the idea saw light for model year 1968 when the new BMC "C-series" seven-main-bearing, twin SU-carbureted, 2,912cc straight-six engine was shoehorned into the B. This unit was physically taller and 340 pounds heavier than the MGB's 98hp, 1.8-liter four, and fitting it required swapping the front suspension's coil springs for torsion bars. In spite of its overly generous dimensions, the three-liter was an impressively smooth unit of 145hp at 5,250 rpm and 174-lbs.ft. of torque at 3,500 rpm, making it the most powerful M.G. sports car built.

The MGC Was A 2,912 cc, Rated At 145 HP, Straight-Six Version Of The MGB Sold From 1967 And Produced Until August 1969. In The Twin SU Carburetor Form Used In The MGC, The Engine Produced 145 bhp At 5,250 rpm.
