This 1969 CGT has been stunningly restored by its retired vehicle technician owner and is a credit to his workmanship. The motor car was stripped to the bare bodyshell and mounted on a rotisserie repair stand; all panels were checked and rusted or weak units replaced with good quality Heritage panels, including: both sill panel assemblies, castle rails, jacking points, the boot floor panels, the right hand door, the rear wheelhouse panels, front and rear valances, the lower panels of both front wings and both quarter panels. The panel fit and gaps are correct and exemplary. Door hinges were replaced and most of the nuts, bolts and washers are now new stainless steel. The bodyshell was professionally shot blasted and undercoated in zinc phosphate primer, prepared and then resprayed in the original colour of Old English White. After the paint was applied, the reassembly included the fitting of a new wiring loom, new lighting and a new oil and temperature gauge; the electrical system was converted to use one twelve volt battery and the MG is also now equipped with new battery cables, a new fuse box and a master switch.
The steering and suspension systems were overhauled with new: components and bushes, rear road springs, poly-bushes and Spax (conversion) shock absorbers. The rear axle and gearbox has been checked and a new clutch assembly fitted. The braking system has been fully inspected and overhauled, with most components renewed, including copper brake pipes and braided hoses. The engine unit has been reconditioned and bench tested, and the distributor has been converted to electronic. The oil cooler and pipes have also been replaced and the carburettors have been rebuilt using new rebuild kits.
The cooling system has been treated to a new water pump, a new radiator core and all new hoses. The exhaust system is now stainless steel, most of the weatherstrips are new and much of the brightwork has been rechromed. The interior has been improved with a quality carpet set and a new headlining, and the seats have been fitted with new diaphragms to retain the originals in preference to creating a new look interior. The original five wire wheels are refurbished, power coated silver and fitted with new Avon 165/65x15 tyres and tubes. The knock-on wheel nuts are new. The Tudor sunroof has been refurbished; the MG is fitted with a rally type gear stick and overdrive switch and the engine unit has an expensive alloy valve cover (the originals of both are supplied).
CGH 123H is supplied with a large history file which contains the V5C registration certificate, MOT test certificates, old road tax discs and numerous invoices.
Possibly the best example on the market, this MG C is a truly superb sports car.
