The MG MGC was intended to replace the Austin-Healey 3000 in 1967 in order to meet American emissions and crash regulations. The US market demanded a six-cylinder sports car, but the MGC’s 2,912 cc six-cylinder engine didn’t derive from the tuneable Austin-Healey unit. The MGC was launched both as a roadster and GT coupe just as British Leyland was created by combining BMC’s Austin-Morris group with Standard-Triumph.
