MG MGC/MG MGC GT (ADO52). 1967–9 (prod. 9,002, incl. 4,458 GT). 2-door convertible, 3-door coupé. F/R, 2912 cm³ (I6 OHV). Replacement for Austin–Healey 3000 with MGB bodies and three-litre C-series engine from Austin 3-Litre. GT denoted fastback coupé, as with B. Poorly sorted, with reports claiming that fronts too heavy (engine 209 lb heavier than the B’s unit), spoiling the handling. The reality may have been underinflated front tyres at launch, spoiling the car’s reputation from then on. Identified by the bonnet bulge; at the time, a market failure.

Manufacturing location: Abingdon, Oxfordshire, England

Marque: MG | Predecessor: Austin–Healey 3000
