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 Swansea 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 Healy 3000 shoehorned in when what the MGB was crying out for was the Buick V8 from the big Rover P5. This of course became the MGB V8 and 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.

This model and my red MGB GT have the same problem - the suspension - instead of using steel wires they use the plastic moulding for the bumpers & grille - after 30 years or so it has sagged very badly leaving no articulation there at all. Still - a nice model. Check the MGB page on this website for a suspension fix.
