The 2.9 litre engine is a naturally aspirated, overhead valve, 6 cylinder that has an output of 145 bhp (147 PS/108 kW) of power at 5250 rpm, and maximum torque of 230 N·m (170 lb·ft/23.5 kgm) at 3400 rpm. The engine transmits power to the wheels compliments of a 4 speed manual with overdrive gearbox. It’s claimed kerb weight is 1116 kg. It is claimed to achieve a top speed of 193 km/h (120 mph).
In 1969, the Metropolitan Police ordered this, amongst other MGC Roadsters, to be actively used as unmarked traffic cars’, utilising their powerful engine’s to catch and surprise those not abiding by the letter of the law on our roads. This example has been completely restored to a standard that can only be admired, fastidious attention to detail and originality has been taken to ensure this car is, as it was, when in active duty during the 1970’s including an original handset radio in the glove box and Winkworth bell behind the front grill. WGJ 208G has been verified by the historic police vehicles registrar and is accompanied by an MG heritage certificate which we are informed the attention to detail has been extended to even ensure correct positioning of the rear only police plate, this was so at the time you would not know that you have been caught out by the Police until such point as that you were pulled over by the ‘boys in blue’.
Included in the restoration was a full body off, bare-metal re-spray, new carpets and interior, new or restored chrome work and a refresh on the previously restored engine creating, as the vendor describes, a truly wonderful example of a car that could tell many stories. This beauty can be viewed in our showroom in Estepona, Spain.
