More details

The first project code allocated in 1961 for the new six-cylinder MGC sports car was ADO52 but it wasn't until 1965 that the first prototype MGC Roadster was manufactured. Initially starting life as a pre 1965 MGB pull handle body shell, assembled by Pressed Steel in Swindon Wiltshire. The original shell was then taken to the Morris Bodies Plant in Coventry where extensive "off tools" modifications were made to accommodate the torsion bar front suspension necessary to take the Alec Issigonis newly designed seven bearing six-cylinder engine.

A two-year production span was all the MGC enjoyed before being withdrawn in September 1969 with a total of 8,999 cars being built; 4,542 were roadsters and 4,457 were in GT form.
