Hexagon Classics are delighted to present a very special MGC that has been named “The Monster” by its creators. Sebring specification steel arches, Daytona chrome wire wheels, a bespoke leather interior, and a wonderful vibrant metallic paint colour make for a visual feast. Hexagon sold plenty of these MGC’s in the 1960’s so it seems only fitting that we have this special car to offer today.
The MGC is powered by a six-cylinder 2912 cc engine with upgraded performance provided by triple carburettors and Downton twin pipe exhaust system. This MGC also has an electronic distributor, front disc brakes, and overdrive making the car usable for all manner of enthusiast’s classic car events. Roll over protection, 3-point harnesses and Monza style filler cap and battery cut-off switch add to the sporting appearance. The low mileage reading just 50,850 miles is also believed to be genuine.
Britain in the 1960s was a brilliant place for a single guy with money in his pocket and a hankering for something sporty to park outside his bachelor pad. To extend the appeal, and add more power to the MGB, Abingdon's engineers came up with the idea of fitting the straight-six C-series engine. Although the MGB was doing the business, and selling in its droves, there was now a vacuum in the range since the demise of the big Austin Healey 3000’s. A higher-powered MGB would fit the bill perfectly. The power and torque figures were more than adequate for this GT’s potential upmarket ambitions.
Originally registered in 1968, this MGC benefitted from a full bare metal repaint in Rivera Silver Blue metallic in May 2017. Our MGC monster has also benefitted from a recent service, new water pump, carburettor rebuild, new front tyres, and brake discs and pads. With just two UK owners, the MGC comes complete with an impressive history and maintenance file, BMIHT certificate and maintenance handbook., After the fitment of a custom new honeycomb grille, and gleaming after a recent full machine polish, this MGC is now all ready to be driven and enjoyed.
