This fully road legal and historically registered MG is the only one of its kind. Restored in 2004 from a bare chassis, it has been treated to a ground up restoration with significant performance improvements. These include: an engine rebuild, rebuilt twin Su carburettors, rebuilt front and rear suspension and brake system, new spark plugs, dizzy cap, ignition leads and coil. Increased coolant capacity comes in the form of a Kenlow fan and re-conditioned radiator.

Finished in metallic British Racing Green with a reupholstered red interior, eighty per cent of the original aluminium body panels have been fitted and fabricated using stainless steel rivets left unpainted for effect. Complete with a new windscreen, new battery, new fuel lines, new fabricated mild steel exhaust with Powerflow stainless silencers, this impressive road and track vehicle has benefited from significant expenditure.

DCY 668C boasts a 3500cc Rover V8, a hand built steel tubular space frame chassis clad in aluminium panels with MGB Running gear, a Rover 3005 four-speed gearbox, MGB Banjo type 3.9 limited slip diff and adjustable rear shock absorbers. This chassis is Colin Coopers fourth bearing the number DCY 668C and comes with a new log book, the original green log book, some paper history, receipts, a photographic album of the complete rebuild, twelve months M.O.T and a magazine feature from 1982. Perfect for hill climbs, track use or exhilarating road use.
