This 1969 MGC GT Coupe was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held in Amelia Island, Florida. It was offered without reserve and estimated to sell between $15,000 - $20,000. The car is powered by a 2912cc, overhead valve inline six-cylinder engine capable of producing 145 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and front disc brakes.

In 1962, the MGB was introduced and followed three years later by the MGB GT Coupe. The MGB GT was similar to the standard MGB, but added a fixed roof with a hatch that provided access to the rear luggage compartment. The rear seats could fold down to provide extra storage capacity. The design of the body made it more aerodynamic and easier to handle. The body did have its drawbacks, such as adding an additional 270 pounds.

The MG was improved further in 1967 with the addition of a six-cylinder engine. It raised horsepower to 145 and was the most powerful engine/car that MG had ever produced. With this improvement, the name was changed to MGC. The MGC was available in roadster and coupe configuration.

Production of the MGC lasted less than three years with fewer than 7000 examples being constructed.

This MGC GT Coupe has been treated to a complete restoration since new. It is finished in black with a black leather interior. It was a single owner vehicle for more than 35 years where it spent its time in California.

At auction, the car found a new owner, selling above the estimate value. The car was sold for $22,000.
