Corgi 345; MG C GT Competition Model

 

You've got to feel a bit sorry for the Corgi range planners. They had a lovely model on the books with the MGB. then in 1969 MG came out with their latest offering - the MGC - so all the boys in Northampton had to do was to change the decal and add a power bulge and they had their own fab new supercar. Who remembers the MGC now? It was an MGB with the engine from the Austin Healey 3000 shoehorned in; when what the MGB was crying out for was the Buick V8 from the big Rover P5. This of course appeared in time as the MGB V8 and then the MGC disappeared without trace.

The MGC Competition No.345 was briefly in the range for 1969 only. In 1970 it was replaced with the Whizzwheels version (No.378) which is either dark orange with a black bonnet or red with a black bonnet.
