1969 MGC roadster - This excellent condition survivor has the standard transmission with overdrive, and tonneau cover in addition to the convertible top. The brake master cylinder was recently changed, and the brake boosters were rebuilt and reinstalled after being off the car for a number of years. The car has been in dry storage for the last 15 years, and is driven occasionally on sunny summer days. The car was a black plate California car, but now wears Crater Lake plates from Oregon. The odometer reads a bit over 82K miles, and the condition suggests this is original mileage, but that cannot be verified. After a brief warm-up, the six cylinder engine just purrs. Fun to drive as is, or one of the finest examples for someone who wants to do a complete restoration.
