Our 1969 MGC GT was originally a standard BRG automatic when purchased in 1982, then in 2006 the bodywork was built to the stunning Sebring Spec you see. Since 2006 she has had many engine rebuilds in the hunt for more power, from 2006 its started with a MG Motorsport fast road/track engine which was around 170bhp and recently in mid 2015 the engine now has 296bhp.
Full Spec Below:
Sebring (fiberglass) fender flares, with hand-rolled aluminum front valance and flush fiberglass rear valance. Finished in British Racing Green (GN29) with Snowberry White roundels. Sebring headlamp fairings, over 100/80 Watt H4 bulbs. New laminated windscreen with safety glass in other windows. Monza style 3.5" fuel filler on C-pillar.
Full roll cage. Ridgard RS9 racing seats with Willans four-point 3" harnesses. Plumbed fire suppression system. FIA external kill switch and extenguisher control. Moto-Lita 15" steering wheel with quick release hub. Paddy Hopkirk accelerator pedal (helps with heel-and-toe driving). 8000 rpm tachometer. Later model MGB stalk switch (with headlamp dip, etc.).

So the next step for the winter rebuild is a new cam to drop the rpm and up the torque, also the crank will have some work and a nice new light flywheel. Hopefully the car will be just as enjoyable. Last season last on we fitted some new gas front shocks made for me by Gaz sized and valved as requested this changed the front end dramatically.
The Alloy Hubs and new discs fitted ready for next season. Wilwood calipers rebuilt, we do have New sets available.
