MGC OVERDRIVE body-off restoration

MGC 3.0L 6 cylinder with OVERDRIVE from 1968 (total production limited to 4500 roadsters) in remarkable condition, no scratches or rust spots

Professional body-off restoration in Great Britain in 2017 by a specialist with sandblasting of the hull (photos provided), anti-rust treatment, and installation of new or reconditioned parts.

Purchased in 2018 from Former Glory, the brand's leading English specialist, it has only covered 2,597 km since its restoration. Out only in dry weather, she has always slept in a garage. This MGC drives perfectly as if it were new even though it is 52 years old!
