I bought this in Ontario after stumbling across it on Kijiji. It's been a lot of fun, but it is time to move it along to a new home. My for-sale post in the Trader is here: http://www.mgexp.com/phorum/read.php?42,2444475
It is, apart from a respray in its original color, a quite original and low mileage car. The color is my new favorite, Snowberry White, which really looks like an extremely light Pale Primrose Yellow to my eyes. It still sports all of its original emissions equipment, including the carb cooling fan and Otter switch, not to mention the under-dash panels, the leather steering wheel cover, the Kangol Magnet belts, and the '69-only Chiclet headrests.
Shortly after buying it, I sorted out its major needs, fitted some new tires, and hit the road to Atlanta via the Blue Ridge Parkway. What a great trip! 2,727.4 miles there and back and the car performed flawlessly. The automatic transmission gave some trouble immediately afterwards, but an adjustment to the front band resolved it. Speaking of which, the automatic is, to my surprise, a nice complement to the character of the car. I tend to be a manual transmission person, but the MGC makes for an excellent Grand Tourer when fitted with the Automatic.
Since that trip, I have continue to sort out the car's needs. The engine bay received some much needed cosmetic attention, and I sourced and installed a set of the proper Girling MkIIB power brake servos that were rebuilt by the folks at Power Brake Exchange. The windshield and backlight trim still needs to be installed.
